Trish’s Pants-Shittingly Rad Recap: Bills-Bengals
Welp, the Buffalo Bills suck. What an embarrassing way to end the season. Like I said in my predictions, it wasn’t even a hard-fought loss. The Bills just did not show up, despite playing AT HOME. I’m angry, upset, and feeling really, really petty.
1.) Defensive Line, where you at?
The Bengals had no O-Line. They using backups and rookies. And the Buffalo Bills DL had absolutely no answer. I don’t want to take anything away from the Bengals; they came into this prepared whilst the Bills, it seems, did not.
If I’m Eric Washington, I’m worrying about my job security right now because this Bills defensive line is STACKED. They have some really big, impressive players. Oliver and Rousseau, to me, are Grade A linesmen. Basham is on his way. Jones, Settle, and Lawson are all capable. There is absolutely no reason why they played the way they did. At this point I don’t even have faith that having Miller in the lineup would’ve made a difference.
2.) Kenny D don’t care
This genuinely hurts me because I am a HUGE Dorsey fan. It physically pains my heart to be critical of him. But I think the entirety of Bills Mafia is unhappy with the game plan and the execution of the plays that were called. It’s like the Bills just didn’t come to play.
Why was Gabe Davis constantly targeted when he seemingly has an allergy to the ball? How was Stefon Diggs, arguably one of the best WRs in the league, not used to his potential? Why was the, as of late, dominant ground game not used more in those blistery conditions? I am inclined to blame some defensive woes on this offense, who refused to stay on the field long enough to give their teammates a break. Dorsey has many questions to answer in the coming weeks…
3.) Bills Offensive Line literally does not care about Josh Allen
I’m not even going to expand on this. Allen had no space to himself in the pocket, and the few times he did, he panicked.
I can’t pick out something good from this game. I’m still so in my feels I can’t even bring myself to be loving about Tyler Bass.
(*gasp of disbelief*) Look at what you’ve done to me Bills!! I can’t even bring my signature wit and thirstiness to this piece!
What an end to both me and the season.
Go Bills, I guess.
