• Buffalo was aided in this matchup by three turnovers that put them into favorable scoring position, but that should not take away from the excellent game planning and play calling that took place on either side of the ball. Holding Tennessee to 12 points and forcing three turnovers is a credit to the defense’s preparation, which boosted Buffalo’s game planning score.
• Last week we mentioned that Buffalo may have asked too much of their rookie quarterback Josh Allen in their previous week’s matchup in Green Bay, often leaving him vulnerable to Green Bay’s pass rush. This week was a completely different story. The Buffalo offense leaned heavily on the running game while calling easy underneath passes, many off of play action. This strategy was extremely effective as it kept Josh Allen composed and the offense productive. On their game winning drive, Buffalo ran the ball seven times and threw only two quick underneath routes to the flat. It was not flashy offense, but it was effective and played into a broader game plan that resulted in a win. Credit to Buffalo’s play calling for making this adjustment from last week.
