What’s wrong with Josh Allen and the offense?

Buffalo’s setback vs. the Jaguars was arguably the worst loss the team has suffered during head coach Sean McDermott’s tenure in Buffalo. Before the loss to the Jaguars, Buffalo boasted the league’s number-one scoring offense (averaging 32.7 points per game), but the Bills could only muster two field goals and were held without a touchdown for the first time since a 9-3 loss at the Carolina Panthers on Sept. 17, 2017. We analyze the offense’s woes, offer up solutions to help the Bills break out of their offensive slump, and more.

The Bills employed plenty of nickel coverage on defense in the loss to Jacksonville, despite the absence of Taron Johnson. Plus, other lessons to be learned from the snap counts, what lessons the Bills should learn from this demoralizing setback, where this loss ranks among the franchise’s most embarrassing losses, whether the Bills deserve to still be among the Super Bowl favorites after the loss to the Jaguars, and more.
