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.

An unusual aspect of Sunday’s loss to the New England Patriots, in contrast with most other recent losses by the Buffalo Bills, is that their defense, not their offense, deserved the brunt of the blame for the team’s 37-22 loss that gives the Patriots a one-game lead in the AFC East.

In spite of my skepticism after the decision, it has been evident through two games that Kyle Orton is an upgrade at quarterback for the Bills over EJ Manuel.

Much like the winning effort last week that BBD’s Josh Cornwall documented, it was a tale of two halves again Sunday for Orton and the Bills offense.

After a six-win season in 2013, the Buffalo Bills’ brain trust of general manager Doug Whaley, head coach Doug Marrone and team president Russ Brandon will look to lead the team to improvement in 2014. A major part of that process will play out this offseason as the Bills look to add talent to their roster through the NFL draft, free agency and possibly trades.

The Bills especially need to improve the talent of their offense, which ranked 19th in the NFL in total yards (338.1 per game) and 22nd in points scored (21.2 per game). Still, from quarterback EJ Manuel to left tackle Cordy Glenn and others in between, the Bills have some core pieces to continue building around this offseason.

Hopes were raised for Buffalo Bills fans as the team had a chance to make a run and claim the final playoff spot in the AFC by putting together a late-season win streak. The playoffs are now even more of a long shot, however, after the Bills gave a potential win away—twice—at the end of the fourth quarter and in overtime against the Atlanta Falcons last week.

Buffalo’s mentality should turn toward finishing the season on a positive note and building momentum as a young team. After a loss in Toronto, the team heads to Tampa Bay on to take on a Buccaneers team full of players and coaches fighting to keep jobs.

In truth, the Buccaneers are better than their 3-9 record. They lost to the New York Jets on a costly personal foul penalty by Lavonte David that set up the Jets’ game-winning field goal one play later. They suffered a two-point loss to the 9-3 New Orleans Saints, three-point defeat at the hands of the 7-5 Arizona Cardinals and a three-point loss to the 11-1 Seattle Seahawks on the road. Tampa Bay’s schedule has been much tougher than the Bills, and having won three of their last four games, the Buccaneers are ripe to test the fragile Bills when the two teams meet Sunday for their respective Week 14 game.
