Does This Stat Prove The Bucs and Tom Brady Got Special Treatment Yesterday?
It was a game that Buffalo Bills fans had been looking forward to all week, and really, since the NFL schedule came out in thee spring: The Bills at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and former New England Patriots quarterback, Tom Brady.
Even though the first half was not a good performance by Buffalo, down 24-3 at halftime, the Bills came roaring back in the second half and tied the game, 27-27.
However, the non-call for pass interference against Stefon Diggs in the left side of the end zone with 25 seconds left in regulation, along with another missed call against Diggs on third down in overtime, as well as a pass interference call on Bills cornerback Levi Walllace, even though he didn't contact receiver Mike Evans, had Bills fans fuming.
The Bills would go on to lose 33-27 on overtime.
Believe it or not, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were not called once for pass interference or defensive holding, even though Bills quarterback Josh Allen dropped back over 60 times and threw 54 passes...that's absolutely amazing, and not in a good way.
The Bills were called for seven penalties in yesterday's game, while the Bucs were called for just four total.
Allen was seen in a walking boot after the game and he said it's sore but that he doesn't think it's serious.
Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network says Allen has a mild case of turf toe, which can be a painful and lingering injury that football players suffer.
The Bills next play the Carolina Panthers at Highmark Stadium in Orchard Park next Sunday at 1 pm. The Bills still hold the 7th and final playoff seed in the AFC postseason picture.
