Buffalo Bills Betting

It’s now been 25 years since the Buffalo Bills last won a playoff game. Buffalo’s most recent postseason victory came in 1995 when the Bills beat Dan Marino and the Miami Dolphins in the Wild Card Round before falling to Neil O’Donnell and the Pittsburgh Steelers in the Divisional Round. Since that point, the Bills have lost four straight Wild Card games, and they have had their hearts ripped out in two of their last three postseason appearances. The Music City Miracle shockingly ended their season 20 years ago, but Deshaun Watson did it nearly single-handedly this time. Watson led Houston back from a 16-0 deficit to beat Buffalo in overtime, making the Bills the only road team that failed to win in Wild Card Weekend.

Season Recap

Although the season ended in disappointment, Buffalo can feel good about its success this year. The Bills were competitive throughout the season, as head coach Sean McDermott made this offense competent despite a dearth of talent. Josh Allen is one of the least accurate quarterbacks in the NFL, but McDermott had the second-year quarterback out of Wyoming play well enough to lead the Bills to the playoffs.

Allen was one of the few starting quarterbacks to complete under 60 percent of his passes this season, completing just 58.8 percent of passes while averaging 6.7 YPA. He did a decent job limiting his interceptions, and McDermott built a functional offense around him, but he needs to improve his accuracy for the Bills to improve in 2020.

The young quarterback did show fearlessness as a runner though, and his surprising elusiveness gave multiple teams trouble throughout the 2019 campaign. Allen averaged 4.7 YPC while running for 510 yards, and he was a monster in the red zone with nine rushing touchdowns.

That buoyed a solid ground game. Rookie Devin Singletary supplanted veteran Frank Gore as Buffalo’s top running back midway through the season, and Singletary averaged 5.1 YPC while playing a small role in the passing game. However, his four fumbles off 151 carries are inexcusable, so the rookie needs to learn how to hold onto the ball better.

Buffalo’s front office did an excellent job getting Allen two experienced veterans to throw the ball to in Josh Brown and Cole Beasley. The two signings immediately became Allen’s favorite options, and they helped reshape a Buffalo receiving corps that was one of the league’s least talented units in 2018. Rookie Dawson Knox showed flashes at tight end too, but he only had a catch rate of 56 percent for a tight end.

This defense was lights out all year, and it’s a shame that this unit didn’t get more credit. Tre’Davious White was named a First Team All-Pro cornerback alongside Stephon Gilmore, and White shut down opponents’ best receivers all season. The safety tandem of Micah Hyde and Jordan Poyer was superb, and this front seven shined too.

Tremaine Edmunds has already become one of the league’s best linebackers, and Matt Milano emerged as a diamond in the rough in 2019. First-round pick Ed Oliver had an excellent first season too, showcasing that he should have been selected higher than the No. 9 pick in the draft.

Allen had an excellent day running the ball for Buffalo in its loss to Houston in the Wild Card Round. He carried the ball nine times for 92 yards, and he continually kept the chains moving. Singletary had an excellent outing too with 19 touches for 134 yards from scrimmage, but it wasn’t enough as Allen fumbled the game away late.

The Bills sacked Deshaun Watson seven times, but Watson got up and dusted himself off repeatedly. The young quarterback was overwhelmed by Buffalo’s pressure at first, but he eventually settled in and led the Texans to a comeback win for the ages.

2020 Season Preview

Improving on offense is paramount for the Bills next season. Allen needs to really work on his accuracy, especially on underneath throws. If he can become a little sharper in this area, that could help this offense improve significantly in 2020. He must avoid injury though, as Buffalo’s backup quarterback situation is dire, and there is no one that can really run the ball like him aside from Lamar Jackson.
