The Buffalo Payments have been projected to be the favorites to signify the AFC in Tremendous Bowl LVII, however the workforce sadly fell wanting expectations as soon as once more.

Enjoying by way of snowy circumstances in entrance of their followers at Highmark Stadium, the Payments suffered a 27-10 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals in an AFC Divisional Spherical matchup. This marks the second straight yr that Buffalo did not advance to a convention championship recreation.

Buffalo star quarterback Josh Allen put forth a valiant effort however was surprisingly ineffective, finishing 25 of 42 passes for 264 yards and an interception. He managed to attain a dashing landing and led the workforce with 26 yards on the bottom, which was indicative of the ineptitude of the Payments offense in opposition to the Bengals.

After one other playoff disappointment, head coach Sean McDermott may have quite a bit to reply for as Buffalo transitions to the offseason. He has proved to be a stable coach, however his struggles within the playoffs are regarding.

NFL Twitter could not assist however to tear McDermott and the Payments offense for not supporting Allen in such a high-stakes contest:

Jake Jordan @JakeTheBillsFan

Wow simply unhappy.

What number of years are we going to waste with Josh Allen. Conservative protection with lackluster offensive play calling does not win a Tremendous Bowl.

Payments have to look themselves within the mirror and make some critical modifications this low season.

Easton Freeze @eastonfreeze

What a time for the Payments to have their worst recreation of the yr.

Sport plan, play-calling, determination making, particular person performances; all of it an unmitigated catastrophe.

Sean McDermott trying totally outclassed by Zac Taylor (ZAC TAYLOR) is a very unhealthy look.

Jake Asman @JakeAsman

I guess that in case you gave Payments possession reality serum, they might need Brian Daboll as their head coach over Sean McDermott.

Patrick Moran @PatMoranTweets

Once you’re down three scores with nonetheless 8 minutes left and a pair of timeouts THEN you go for it?!

For a third consecutive yr Sean McDermott has crapped throughout himself within the playoffs.

Paul Zeise @PaulZeise

I’ve stated it earlier than – Josh Allen ain’t that dude on the extent of Mahomes and Burrow. And Sean McDermott is manner overrated.

Raheem Palmer @iamrahstradamus

The place’s the Josh Allen designed runs?

It seems like this recreation is totally totally different if Daboll was nonetheless the offensive coordinator.

Nate Geary @NateGearySports

Creativity. Function. Eye sweet. Forcing the protection to defend each blade of grass.

That is what this Bengals offense is doing.

The Payments are hoping Josh Allen goes god mode in yard soccer.

Teaching issues.

Payments haven’t any solutions on Offense or Protection

Ryan Talbot @RyanTalbotBills

One other fast sequence for the Payments offense and one other punt.

Nate Geary @NateGearySports

The defensive play calls have been baffling and lack logic. They have been dominated. However do not get it twisted, this Payments offense has 10 factors, a number of 3 and outs and has proven up totally unprepared in an important recreation of the season.

Michael David Smith @MichaelDavSmith

Sean McDermott does not appear to appreciate how dire the state of affairs is for his workforce proper now. You go for it on fourth-and-2 in all places on the sector at this level within the recreation.

Tyler Dunne @TyDunne

Payments offense has been so big-play dependent for months. When that occurs — a 3rd and a pair of drop — what do you lean on? Joe Burrow has been the one taking his layups up and down the sector. (Fastened. Tough replay.)

Kevin Massare @KevinMassare

As a Sean McDermott supporter. That is his worst recreation as a coach in a very long time

Nick Veronica @NickVeronica

Zac Taylor and Brian Callahan are outcoaching Sean McDermott and Leslie Frazier and it is not shut

Ryan Dyrud @RyanDyrudLAFB

So are we allowed to start out criticizing Sean McDermott and Josh Allen now?!

Alex&Her @alexandher24

I have been a staunch McDermott defender however what number of years of Allen are we going to let him waste? Subsequent season is yr 6 with 1 AFCC recreation to indicate for it. He is an incredible off day coach however on recreation day he’s backside tier.

Sunday’s loss will go away a bitter style in Buffalo’s mouth for fairly a while. The Payments ought to have the ability to retain most of their core, however a reloaded AFC won’t be a cakewalk in 2023 both.

Buffalo will take the time to evaluate areas it must get higher, and there is a probability McDermott’s partnership with Allen will fall underneath a microscope to determine if that’s the finest mixture for the Payments’ future.
