That wasn’t how I envisioned opening day going for the Buffalo Bills.
Didn’t think I’d have to pull out the “it's only one game” card after the first game of the season. I knew Pittsburgh’s defense was good, one of the best the Bills will face this season, but I didn’t believe they would win their matchup against the Bills offense that decisively.
I’ll get to that in just a bit.
There were three big plays in the game, and all three went in Pittsburgh’s favor. Two of the three did not involve the Bills offense, but a bad performance from the offensive line and an off day by quarterback Josh Allen are clearly the main reasons why the Bills are 0-1 to start the 2021 season.
