For the first three quarters, Kyle Orton and the Buffalo Bills offense could not get of their own way in Sunday’s one-touchdown, 24-17 loss at the Denver Broncos. The Bills defense kept them in striking distance with another dominant performance, but Buffalo’s offense awoke far too late in the game to stage a miraculous comeback.
In principle, the Bills are still very much alive in the playoff chase due to helpful losses by the Cleveland Browns, Kansas City Chiefs and Miami Dolphins. However, the team showed it may not be ready to take the next step through its brutal four-game finish of the 2014 season.
