The Buffalo Bills (2-5) are in a free-fall. The offense is ranked dead last in scoring (averaging a league-worst 11.6 points per game) Cheap Kelvin Benjamin Jersey , including an abysmal effort during Sunday’s 37-5 clunker vs. the Indianapolis Colts. Buffalo failed to score a point in the first half, the third time in the last four games the Bills have entered the break with zero points on the board. The Bills also committed five turnovers Sunday (three Derek Anderson interceptions, one Anderson fumble, plus a costly fumble by Charles Clay that permanently swung momentum towards the Colts). The defense was gouged for 219 rushing yards on 30 carries (an average of 7.3 yards per rush). In other words, nothing is working for head coach Sean McDermott, who saw his career record in Western New York fall to 11-12 after suffering his eighth loss (in 23 career games) by 20 or more points. Up next? A “showdown” with the first-place New England Patriots (5-2), the antithesis of the Bills in almost every possible way. This will be Buffalo’s first home Monday Night Football game in nearly a decade, and during Monday’s session with reporters, McDermott opened up about the significance of Monday Night Football, the atmosphere around the city and the stadium leading up to kickoff, and more. “I remember growing up, I couldn’t wait to get home from school on Mondays because of Monday Night Football. The theme song of it was pretty cool,” McDermott said. “I used to try to sneak the fact that I was really supposed to be sleeping, and I was keeping one eye on the TV for as long as I could, as a young guy you know? To me Cheap Dion Dawkins Jersey , it’s part of an American tradition, Monday Night Football. It brings a lot of energy and excitement to a town.”The last time the Bills hosted a Monday Night Football game, Buffalo welcomed the Cleveland Browns to then-Ralph Wilson Stadium on Nov. 17, 2008, a game the Bills lost 29-27 when Rian Lindell missed a 47-yard field goal.Most of these current Bills were either in high school or college the last time Buffalo was on prime-time for Monday Night Football, and only six current Bills (Lorenzo Alexander, Derek Anderson, Stephen Hauschka, Ramon Humber, LeSean McCoy, and Kyle Williams) were even in the league the last time Buffalo hosted Monday Night Football. Williams played in that loss to the Browns, amassing five total tackles. He is the only current Bill to experience a home Monday Night Football game. McDermott was asked how important it is for his team to go out and perform on the national stage, and to put the most recent embarrassing loss behind them. “It’s that, but it’s also balancing for some of our young guys,” McDermott said. “First time on Monday Night Football and then you add the equation of the opponent and some of the personnel Cheap Shaq Lawson Jersey , with respect to the quarterback, and Tom (Brady), that they go out and execute. It’s really an opportunity for us to continue to grow, and execute.”The game is sold out and, despite Buffalo’s struggles, the atmosphere should be electric at New Era Field, in spite of the Bills opening as a 13-point home underdog. Will McDermott allow himself a second to soak in the raucous scene from Buffalo’s first home Monday Night Football game in 10 years? “I think there is a fine line there, a balance. I’ve got a young football team on my hands, on our hands, the biggest thing is that we treat it as a normal game, with all due respect to the opponent and having it home. It’s great that we’re going to have a home game, number one, playing in front of our fans,” McDermott said. “We have to continue to grow and be able to execute in a situation like this. I’ve found that if you get too high then you lose yourself in the moment, and we can’t do that. This will be a little bit of a challenge for us and some of our young players Bills Vladimir Ducasse Jersey , but it’s got to be one that they’re looking forward to.” The Buffalo Bills earned their second win in the last three weeks when Stephen Hauschka booted a 46-yard field goal as time expired to lift Buffalo (2-3) to a 13-12 win over the Tennessee Titans (3-2). In the latest edition of Billieve: A Buffalo Bills Fans Podcast, host John Boccacino is joined by co-host Anthony Marino to break down the win as Buffalo earned its second victory of the year over a playoff participant from 2017. Among the topics covered in our podcast: the triumphant return of Buffalo’s ground and pound attack, as the Bills turned back to LeSean McCoy (24 carries for 85 yards) and Chris Ivory (14 carries for 43 yards). Buffalo controlled the clock (nearly 34 minutes of possession) and didn’t ask Josh Allen to do to much. Allen, who directed his first career come-from-behind victory, completed 10 of 19 passes for82 yards with one interception and an impressive 14-yard touchdown run on Buffalo’s first possession. The Bills did more to make Allen feel comfortable vs. Tennessee, moving him outside of the pocket for more rollout throws where Allen could either look for his intended target or throw the ball away if there isn’t a throw to be made. Moving Allen outside the pocket made a big difference, letting him see the field better. It also allowed offensive coordinator Brian Daboll to mask Buffalo’s suspect offensive line by not allowing the Titans’ pass rushers to bull their way up the middle and make Allen feel uncomfortable in the pocket. Among the other topics discussed: the emergence of a few unsung heroes on defense (especially Dean Marlowe and Jordan Phillips); the wealth of talent Buffalo can roll out on the defensive line; the continued excellent play of linebackers Matt Milano, Tremaine Edmunds, and Lorenzo Alexander; and the emergence of rookie Taron Johnson, who picked off his first career pass and is proving to be a steal as a fourth-round draft pick.
