There are no safe family friendly words to describe the unmitigated disaster that was the Buffalo Bills’ 9-6 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars Sunday afternoon, but today’s edition of the Bills daily links will try and explain all of the ways the Bills came up short in an embarrassing loss that is unquestionably the worst setback of head coach Sean McDermott’s tenure in Western New York.

Recapping the debacle in Duval

This was a stunning result. Coming into Sunday’s Week 9 clash in Jacksonville, the Bills (5-3) and Jaguars (2-6) appeared headed in opposite directions, but it was the Jaguars who emerged with a 9-6 win over one of the top teams in the AFC. We recap the debacle in Duval County, highlighting how the Bills entered as a heavy favorite and departed with more questions about the offensive line, the play of quarterback Josh Allen, the (lack of a) running game, the receivers’ inability to create any separation, and an uninspiring all-around effort.

Report card, observations, reactions to Week 9 loss

From a plethora of penalties to a lackluster performance from the offense, there wasn’t much to like from Sunday’s loss, other than the defense doing everything it could to keep the Bills in the game.

Odds and ends

The Bills not only dropped a game to the lowly Jaguars, their All-Pro quarterback, Josh Allen, was victimized by his namesake, Jacksonville’s talented edge rusher, Josh Allen. We also hear a disturbing account from Jacksonville cornerback Shaquill Griffin of how the Bills seemed “like they don’t care” during the game, question the play-calling of offensive coordinator Brian Daboll, and examine how the curse of the ManningCast claims another victim.
