The Bills fire Sean McDermott 

Between the 26th of November and Christmas Eve, the Bills play the Eagles, Chiefs, Cowboys, and Chargers in L.A.!  

McDermott has taken over the defensive play calling this season, and everything on that side of the ball is going pretty well. Despite dealing with many injuries, the Bills defense has created 14 turnovers in nine games. They had 11 players either missing or dealing with issues in Week 10.  

The Bills’ problems are on the opposite side of the ball. The run game is just as patchy as it was last season. And they have also given up 14 turnovers, the sixth-highest number in the league. Five different Bills players have fumbled the ball so far this season, and Josh Allen has thrown nine interceptions. Only Jordan Love and Mac Jones have thrown more.

Unless the Bills can figure out how to eradicate those mistakes, they will go 8-9. And that means they miss out on the playoffs due to their inferior divisional record.
