Bills vs. Texans Recap
The Buffalo Bills lost a heart breaker this week with a 20-13 lost to the Houston Texans. The Bills and Texans were tied 13-13 with 1:34 left in the fourth quarter, and then Nathan Peterman threw a pick six and another late interception to seal the Bills fate. The NFL season includes several ups and downs for teams throughout the 17 week season, but apparently Nate Peterman will alway throw interceptions.
The Bills offense was once again nonexistent. LeSean McCoy provided some nice plays, but pre-snap penalties and other mistakes will bring an offense to a standstill. Josh Allen’s play also needs to be spoken about. For the second week in a row, Allen threw for less than 100 yards. Not being able to throw for at least 100 yards for two consecutive weeks is cause for concern. Yes, Allen may not have the talent around him to move the ball consistently; however, that excuse will only get you so far. Brian Daboll needs to be better and the Bills pre-snap need to be better as well. I’ve been talking about this for a couple of weeks now, but the Bills need to seriously consider moving on from some of these guys at the trade deadline.
The bright spot of the day was once again how well the defense played. Our front seven is among the best in the entire league and should create havoc for opponents all season. Although Watson carried the ball like a loaf of bread, it’s pretty impressive to create that many turnovers and potential turnovers as well.
The Bills need to be better and cannot give away games late on the road. Peterman should be looking for another job, but unfortunately I don’t see it coming to that just yet. Things for the Bills could very well turn around once again next week when the Bills travel to Indianapolis, assuming Allen is able to take the field.
