NFL: Minnesota Vikings at Buffalo Bills Gregory Fisher-USA TODAY Sports

The Buffalo Bills were nearly unbeatable in the second half of their first six games, with the defense pitching four shutouts and the offense averaging 14 points per game after halftime.

But since their bye week, the Bills have done a sudden reversal after halftime, and today’s edition of Buffalo Rumblinks leads off by discussing what has gone wrong for the Bills in the second half of their games, and whether the issues are fixable.

Bills Vikings recap: What’s happened to the second-half offense?

Once a dominant second-half team, the Bills have been outscored 43-12 in the second half and overtime of their last three games, a stretch that has seen Buffalo fall from the No. 1 seed in the AFC to No. 3 in the AFC East. The good news? Buffalo’s offense is still moving the ball after halftime. The bad news? The defense is allowing teams to move up and down the field at will after intermission.

Plus, analysis on why offensive coordinator Ken Dorsey and Buffalo’s offense have come up short so often on short-yardage situations, and have failed to convert scoring opportunities in the red zone.

Bills injuries: Josh Allen in a ‘good spot’

Head coach Sean McDermott provided updates on several members of the Bills dealing with injuries, including QB Josh Allen, who is in a “good spot” as he deals with playing through his UCL injury.
