- End of first half, Sean McDermott allowed about 15 seconds off game clock before calling timeout to preserve time for final possession of half. Ended up creating a time crunch on last drive of half.
- Vance Joseph called a fake punt on their own 31 yard line down four with less than a minute to go in the 3rd quarter. Completely unnecessary call, Bronco players were late getting lined up to begin with, and it resulted in quick points for the Bills. This play call alone swung the momentum of the game towards the Bills in a significant way. Notes from Vance Joseph on the call here:
- The Broncos moved away from the run in the 4th quarter despite success with it in the first three quarters, while the Bills moved away from play action despite earlier success. Ultimately a pair of turnovers and some costly penalties worked in the favor of the Bills, despite average play calling.
