Dislike: Poor offensive play in Bills’ half
The anatomy of a shutout is simple: prevent the opponent from reaching your end zone. Well, it’s pretty difficult to do that considering a football game is 60 minutes long, and the opposing team is bound to enter your half at some point. With that in mind, the key to earning a shutout is forcing the opponent to mess up when the inevitably penetrate your end of the field.
In Week 4, the Bills did just that. On the rare occasions in which the Patriots’ offense managed to drag themselves into Buffalo territory, the Bills stopped the Patriots in their tracks. Or rather, the Patriots shot themselves in the foot by committing multiple miscues.
Brissett fumbled on what could have been a field goal attempt. Speaking of field goal attempts, Stephen Gostkowski pushed what would have been an automatic make wide right, instilling further doubt into the Patriots’ fan base about the veteran kicker’s efficiency as of late. And then there was Bolden’s drop near the goal line. Merp.
Last but not least…
