Bills humiliated by Broncos 24-22, imploding

The Buffalo Bills have sacked offensive coordinator Ken Dorsey less than 18 hours after they were beaten by the lowly Broncos on Monday Night Football.

It was a game that the Bills were expected to win, comfortably, as the now 4-5 Broncos completed their third consecutive win, two of which have been against AFC powerhouses in the Bills and Chiefs.

BILLS SEASON HANGING IN THE BALANCE

The tension was palpable in the Bills locker room after the game, but so were the statements of confidence. “Yeah, I’m still confident. But it’s no secret. The clock’s ticking. Got to have some urgency now,” quarterback Josh Allen said. “I’m confident. But I believe we can be better at the same time,” head coach Sean McDermott said.

Dorsey got the OC job after previous OC Brian Daboll took the head coaching job in New York before the 2022 season. But the Buffalo have now failed to score more than 26 points in their last 6 games, an unacceptable performance for a supposedly explosive offense.

And it was in that vein that McDermott said, “I think I need a little bit of time here after the game to assess that. Obviously I’m not real happy right now, so I’ll evaluate that in the next 24 hours here and see where that takes us.” Clearly the tape didn’t help Dorsey.
