This Play Lost The Bills a Game They Should’ve Won [WATCH]
The Buffalo Bills lost what was one of the most devastating losses in not only franchise history, but in the history of the NFL, and certainly in Buffalo sports history.
The Bills took the lead back from the Kansas City Chiefs twice in the final two minutes of their AFC Divisional Round game; both were unbelievable drives, led by Bills quarterback Josh Allen.
Allen escaped pressure to run for a 4th down in Chiefs territory, only to outdo himself by throwing a 27-yard touchdown pass on 4th and 13 to Gabriel Davis to put the Bills ahead, 27-26 -- then completing an insane 2-point conversion to Stefon Diggs.
Allen then tossed an 18-yard touchdown pass to Gabriel Davis with 13 seconds left, for what seemed like the game-winning touchdown pass. That put the Bills up 36-33.
But then came the sequence that Bills fans are up in arms about, and it had to do with one play in particular.
The Chiefs had just 8 seconds remaining on the clock when Patrick Mahomes completed a 25-yard pass to Travis Kelce to set up the game-typing field goal by Harrison Butker.
I, nor do any Bills fans, have any idea what defensive scheme this is when the Chiefs needed a field goal to tie the game. Instead, the Bills played off the ball by at least 10 yards and no defenders where near the Chiefs most dangerous mid-field weapon.
The play before, where the Chiefs gained 19 yards, featured a similar strategy and it doesn't make any sense why the Bills defenders are playing so off the line of scrimmage.
Bills head coach Sean McDermott and defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier were playing this like the Chiefs needed a Hail Mary, or they were down by four. It doesn't make any logical sense why the Bills were in that defensive look.
Bills fans will think about this for a very long time; honestly, until this franchise wins a Super Bowl.
The person who should be the most upset if Josh Allen, who just put up the greatest two-game stretch by any QB in NFL playoff history.
