Those who support the Buffalo Bills might be hitting the panic button, but the team itself is not.

On Sunday, Week 11 saw the Bills (6-4) get smoked. The Indianapolis Colts, highlighted by five touchdowns from running back Jonathan Taylor, beat Buffalo, 41-15.

Sure he’s concerned, but Bills quarterback Josh Allen didn’t think he saw enough bad from his team to worry him.

“What we put on that field is not who we are,” Allen said via video conference. “It’s no secret we need to do a better job on all fronts. There’s no way around it. But at the same time, it’s not panic mode. We got to learn from this one and move on because we play on Thursday night.”

Buffalo head coach Sean McDermott did not say he’s not panicking… however, he echoed a similar sentiment to Allen. The coach said he knows what’s wrong and knows what his team must to do avoid such games again.

“We’ve gotta get that (run defense) fixed,” McDermott said. “There’s a formula to win and there’s a formula on the other end of it too and when you’re giving up and we’re getting beat at the point of attack, obviously I’ve gotta do a better job there.

“We have to do a better job just fundamentally,” McDermott added. “I mean, how many chances did we have just to throw and catch out there today, and just on a check down, and then we’re turning our eyes too quickly, going to make the run before we catch the football, secure the football. So, just fundamentals, point of attack on the defensive side, and again, turning the ball over, it’s a rough life when you do that.”

Don’t turn the ball over and stop the other team.

McDermott certainly makes it sounds easy, the problem is, his team hasn’t found it easy to do these things in certain games this season.

The Bills shouldn’t hit the panic button, they’re right about that.

But they’ve got to hit the refresh one.

Buffalo cannot afford to keep stacking any more losses, especially one to teams in the AFC postseason race.
