Bills LB Nigel Bradham is also a member of Buffalo’s punt coverage unit. Buffalo allowed a 29-yard return in overtime that led to Cincinnati’s game-winning field goal. Bradham explains what’s been ailing the Bills coverage unit.
“Sometimes they just find a seam,” said Bradham of the opposing returners. ”I feel like sometimes we have great coverage, but if someone gets held up at the line a little too long and the other person gets off fast on their release it kind of creates seams and gaps because you’re expecting the guy to be in the lane right beside you, but they’re further back. They’re in their lane, just further behind. We just all have to get off of our releases quicker.”
Bradham said there are no excuses, they just have to execute better.
“We’ve got to do something about it for sure. We always want to get down there at the same time. We’ve just got to make the play. That’s it,” he said.
