Following a disappointing 24-22 loss to the Broncos marked by turnovers and penalties, the Buffalo Bills made a significant change by firing offensive coordinator Ken Dorsey. The move came as the Bills dropped to a 5-5 record, intensifying concerns about their postseason aspirations.
Quarterback Josh Allen expressed his fondness for Dorsey, emphasizing the impact the dismissed coordinator had on his career. Allen acknowledged that better team performance might have averted Dorsey’s departure but placed the blame squarely on himself and the team’s turnovers.
According to reported by a Yahoo Spots, In a press conference, Allen stated, “I’ve got to be better. We’ve got to be better as an offense. Turnover-wise it’s abysmal when we lose, and there’s no secret to that.” While defending Dorsey’s contribution to the team’s success over the years, Allen acknowledged that turnovers, particularly his own interceptions, were the primary issue.
Despite Buffalo’s impressive offensive rankings, the team has struggled with turnovers, recording 18 this season, tied for the second-most in the NFL. Allen’s league-worst 11 interceptions have contributed significantly to this problem.
Addressing the coaching change, Allen indicated that he understood the decision but remained uncertain about the impact on the team’s season. With seven games remaining, the Bills face a challenging schedule against conference leaders and playoff contenders. Allen stressed the urgency to limit mistakes, recognizing the narrow margin for error in their postseason pursuit.”
