Recapping Thursday night’s game in Miami. We began with an update from head coach Doug Marrone and defensive back Corey Graham who addressed the media earlier this morning. We looked back at it how it all went down as Murph delivered the highlights with another edition of Game Rewind courtesy of the play-by-play calls on Buffalo Bills Radio. Post game, we headed in the locker room where we caught up with the players and took a trip Around the Locker Room.
Bills Insider Chris Brown, as he always does following a game, joined us in studio to breakdown the game. He began by looking at the possible playoff scenario for the team as they stand with a 5-5 record and shared what the players had to say about their chances. Brown also discussed the ongoing offensive redzone issues as well as the 4th down argument that was brought up again, specifically when the Bills chose to punt the ball from the Miami 47-yard line early in the fourth quarter.
“We go back once again to the age old problem with analytics. You cannot look at the percentages and treat them like they are in a vacuum. They are not, especially in football with all the variables. Now, the devil’s advocate would say, with how the offense was struggling, don’t you try to take a chance and hold on to the football and see where you can get? Knowing how much Doug Marrone values field position and how his team has been very good in flipping the field this year and creating advantages in field position, I don’t know if you still don’t punt it anyway. I think you can make an argument for both sides based on the way the game was going but I don’t think it’s tipped so far in favor of one way or the other.”
Brown also looked at where the Dolphins had success against the Bills defense and how Corey Graham can be of help in the backend at cornerback now that Leodis McKelvin will be out a while with his fractured ankle.
