The Buffalo Bills Get Embarrassed On Sunday By The Colts
Bills fans thought the Jacksonville Jaguars loss two weeks ago would be the low-point of the 2021 season. Unfortunately, the Bills would have an even worse performance against the Indianapolis Colts today.
The Buffalo Bills got blown out by the Indianapolis Colts by a score of 41-15 at Highmark Stadium.
The Bills were dominated in every facet of the game, but most notably the trenches, where Colts running back Jonathan Taylor ran for 184 yards and five total touchdowns.
The Bills were also terrible in the turnover game. Josh Allen threw three interceptions and backup Mitch Trubisky also threw one in garbage time play towards the end of the fourth quarter.
The back-breaker of the day was when kick returner Isaiah McKenzie tripped and fell on his own, and fumbled the ball, which the Colts took back to the Bills-2-yard-line and they then made the score 24-7.
The Bills also had costly penalties and even kicker Tyler Bass missed two field goals, although the wind and rain played a factor -- one was a 57-yard field goal and the other a 49-yard field goal.
Head coach Sean McDermott has questionable game clock and timeout management, while have a bizarre decision to go for a field goal attempt, instead of a 4th and 5, down by 24.
The Bills are now not in first place in the AFC East, it's the New England Patriots, who are 7-4 -- a half-game up on the 6-4 Bills.
Buffalo next travels to New Orleans to play the Saints on Thanksgiving this Thursday at 8:20 pm.
