Look for Bills to spread it out

Posted by Chris Brown on October 2, 2011 – 7:50 am

Cincinnati’s defense has done well through the first three weeks this season, but there’s one thing they haven’t seen yet in 2011.

The Bengals haved faced a couple of offenses that have West Coast systems and a more traditional pro-style offense in Denver. They’ve yet to face a spread offense like Buffalo’s.

That’s why it’s probably safe to assume that Buffalo will be spreading the field early and often. They have to believe that their top four receivers are better than Cincy’s top 4 corners, and that means mismatches.

They’ll then run out of those four wide sets as well and even go empty backfields and spread the Bengals secondary even thinner.

Simply put the Bills spread attack is not a good fit for Cincinnati’s defense.

Bills lacking rhythm

Posted by Chris Brown on November 2, 2008 – 8:04 pm

The Bills just haven’t found any kind of rhythm on offense the whole game. Dropped passes, poor protection, poor blocking, penalties, turnovers, Buffalo’s play has been more bad than good and if it continues much longer it will cost them the game. (6:41 left in third)

3rd and longs for Bills offense

Posted by Chris Brown on October 26, 2008 – 6:14 pm

On the last two possessions the Bills are getting themselves in 3rd and long situations. They’ve got three 3rd-and-7s and a pair of 3rd-and-10s thus far.
