In a span of just five days, the Buffalo Bills’ playoff hopes went from soaring to now nearly impossible. After losing to the Kansas City Chiefs last Sunday, their latest blow came in a Thursday night loss, 22-9, to the Miami Dolphins. The Bills got outplayed in the second half on both sides of the ball, and couldn’t overcome a couple questionable penalties called against them.

On offense, the struggle continued as Buffalo has now gone nearly two entire games (since the team’s opening drive of its 17-13 loss to Kansas City) without a touchdown. The normally stout defensive unit had an off performance as well, as it had trouble stopping the Dolphins’ quick passing game.

The Buffalo Bills offense started its second half of the season hot, scoring a touchdown on its first possession of the game against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.

Buffalo hasn’t reached the end zone in nearly 115 minutes of football since.

Already ranked 26th in the NFL in touchdowns per game—and dead last in the NFL in red zone touchdown percentage—coming into the week according to TeamRankings.com, the Bills offense reached a new low in futility on Thursday night as it failed to score a single touchdown in a 22-9 loss to the Miami Dolphins that leaves Buffalo, now 5-5 for the season, in a spot from which it is highly unlikely to make the playoffs.

The Buffalo Bills took one on the chin on Sunday, losing 17-13 to the Kansas City Chiefs, moving them down to 10th place and currently out of playoff position in the AFC with a record of 5-4. Ralph Wilson Stadium was buzzing throughout the day, but the home team fumbled away its first-half lead with two costly second-half turnovers.

Once again the Bills defensive unit had a great showing and did more than its part to give the team an opportunity to win, but the offense was a major letdown, especially in the red zone. There were flashes of great play on both sides but overall, defense dominated the day.

For the first 57 minutes of Sunday’s game against the Minnesota Vikings, it looked as though this column would be all about everything that went wrong for the Buffalo Bills offense on Sunday.

The Bills flipped the script in the game’s final three minutes and seven seconds, as quarterback Kyle Orton led a 15-play, 80-yard touchdown drive, which ended with just one second remaining in the game, to give Buffalo a 17-16 victory in a game that was otherwise ugly for both teams.

When the Buffalo Bills traded a sixth-round pick to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for wide receiver Mike Williams in April, it looked as though the Bills were getting a bargain. A 6’2”, 212-pound pass-catcher who had at least 63 receptions and 771 receiving yards in each of his first three seasons, Williams brought the size and experience Buffalo needed in its receiving corps.

Six months later, the trade hasn’t merited much value for the Bills.
