Points being scored on every drive, Josh Allen throwing lasers and bombs and Bills’ mafia celebrating in Orchard Park. The Buffalo Bills’ electric offense is as good as advertised.
Buffalo enters 2023 with an elite quarterback in Allen and arguably the best wide receiver in Stefon Diggs. Allen and Diggs have connected on 29 touchdowns since 2020. Allen and Diggs will strengthen their chemistry this season and continue to attack defenses.
Offense In the Past
The Buffalo Bills have one of the best offenses in the NFL. Buffalo’s offense finished second in the NFL last season. Buffalo scored 28.4 points per game and averaged 397.6 yards per game. Allen recorded 4,283 passing yards, threw 35 touchdowns and 14 interceptions. Diggs caught 108 passes, recorded 1,429 receiving yards and scored 11 touchdowns.
Buffalo’s offense has been built around Allen’s strengths. Strengths that include Allen’s big arm, pocket movement and running ability. Buffalo’s offense destroyed NFL defenses last season. Buffalo blew out the Titans, Steelers, Patriots and Bears. Buffalo scored over 30 points in each of these games.
What about Adaption
There’s an old saying: adapt or die. According to Merriam-Webster’s dictionary adaption is the act or process of changing something to fit a new use or situation.
The Buffalo Bills offense must adapt to accomplish their goal of winning a Super Bowl. Buffalo survived a close playoff game against the Dolphins. Allen made some impressive throws down the field. Allen also threw two interceptions. Buffalo was fortunate not to lose the game.
Buffalo’s offense looked lost and lacked cohesion against the Bengals. Allen threw another interception. Buffalo’s offense lacked the deep passing game they relied on during the season. The Bengals’ secondary eliminated deep passes with a variety of coverages.
So, what can Buffalo do to adapt? Buffalo must use every blade of glass and employ long-scoring drives. Buffalo has relied on explosive plays to knock out defenses. Sports Media Personality Colin Cowherd once said, “The Bills can knock teams out like Mike Tyson. They can’t win close games in the playoffs.” Long scoring drives will keep defenses honest and Buffalo can possess the ball longer.
Buffalo should also study the Kansas City Chiefs. Kansas City’s offense was famous for big plays and short-scoring drives. Last season Kansas City had to go on long-scoring drives because they didn’t have Tyreek Hill. Kansas City’s offense finished first in the NFL and won a Super Bowl with long-scoring drives.
