After suffering a defeat to the Jets on Monday Night Football, Buffalo Bills head coach, Sean McDermott, took the opportunity to thoroughly analyze the game film and pinpoint where things went wrong, especially after leading 13-3 at halftime.
In his postgame press conference, McDermott emphasized the turnovers as the main factor contributing to their 22-16 loss, and he reiterated this during his press conference on Tuesday.
“We had three turnovers in the second half alone, and it’s difficult to win when you give the ball away,” McDermott expressed.
All three second-half turnovers were committed by Bills quarterback Josh Allen, who threw two interceptions and fumbled once. Allen took full responsibility for the mistakes during his postgame press conference, earning praise from McDermott for displaying leadership qualities as the team moves forward from the loss.
“Josh takes ownership of his errors, and he’s excellent at doing so,” McDermott stated on Tuesday. “He openly acknowledges his mistakes and is determined to make the necessary corrections.”
McDermott revealed that upon closer examination of Allen’s three interceptions, there wasn’t a single glaring cause, although some situations shared similarities.
“Overall, it stemmed from attempted deep throws,” McDermott explained. “At times, we needed those yards, but sometimes we didn’t. We need to play smart situational football and avoid trying to do too much.”
