Episode 1 - Bills fall to a Hail Murray; What do they need to work on in coming bye week?

It's the most exciting way to win, but absolute worst way to lose. 

The Buffalo Bills, up and leading over the Arizona Cardinals late in the game on Sunday, fell to one of the most devastating plays in NFL History, the Hail Mary. In what is now being dubbed as the "Hail Murray", DeAndre Hopkins caught a 40+ yard touchdown pass with not one, not two, but three Bills defenders on him, in one of the most incredible plays that fans have seen this season, and perhaps beyond.

To put the result on the game solely on that play however, would be incredible inaccurate, as the Bills lead most of the game, and their offense began to unravel in the third quarter. Two Josh Allen interceptions didn't help the Bills chances to maintain their 14 point lead, and, despite their significant final drive that ended with a 21 yard touchdown pass to Stefon Diggs, it was not enough.

Though they are coming into a much needed bye week after 10 weeks of roller coaster football, the Bills have some work to do. While the secondary is starting to come alive, the rush defense is still struggling and Josh Allen needs to make better decisions on the field. 

Believe it or not, the Dolphins are breathing down the Bills neck right now, sitting at 6-3, and an opportunity to only sit back by a half game next week against the Broncos. The race for the AFC East may not be as clear cut as many Bills fans would like to believe.
