Buffalo Bills Week 10 Overreactions
What the hell was that outing? The Buffalo Bills looked sharp and precise in the first half, with Devin Singletary scoring twice. They looked like nothing could go wrong. Then the second half happened. Josh Allen’s costly overtime interception, Devin Singletary’s “fumble,” and the fumbled snap at the one-yard line. These are mistakes we haven’t seen from the Bills since the 2019 season, and they seem to be happening week after week now.
1.) Who’s This Josh Allen and Where Did The Real One Go?
Josh Allen has thrown 10 INTs so far this season. More than Davis Mills and Matt Ryan. A lot of these mistakes he’s making are things that were corrected a couple of years ago with Jordan Palmer, but they’re making their way back to the field. Now, he is a gunslinger and you have to expect this. But these interceptions right to the defender (his second one) are mistakes that shouldn’t be happening, gunslinger or not.
2.) Cam Lewis is a Pretty Good Safety
The Buffalo Bills had Cam Lewis replace Jaquan Johnson in the starting lineup, and he did not disappoint (to an extent). Lewis finished the game with nine tackles, and played pretty well against Minnesota’s top receivers (besides that one play). We haven’t seen a lot of Lewis to this point in the season, but that may change come next week against the Cleveland Browns and beyond.
3.) It Was the “A.J. Epenesa Game”
A.J. Epenesa replaced the injured Greg Rousseau in the starting lineup yesterday, and he looked like what Bills fans expected when the team drafted him. Epenesa finished the game with three tackles, one sack, and two passes defended. If the Bills can start getting this consistent production from the former second-round pick, their pass rush will go to a whole new level.
4.) The Bills Looked Like They Had a Nice RB Tandem Going
With the call-up of Duke Johnson on Saturday, Bills fans didn’t expect a huge change in the RB room. However, that helped free up Nyheim Hines for an extended role, and gave us all a better look at what the play calls could look like when he’s up to speed. Except he did not receive any rushing attempts and only caught one pass for nine yards. Do they do the same thing next week with Duke? Maybe, but it would completely rely on where Allen’s elbow is at. This looked like Devin Singletary’s most productive game to date, totaling 13 carries, 47 yards, and two TDs. If this keeps up, a trio of Singletary, James Cook, and Hines will be unstoppable.
