That first half was all Buffalo. Gotta respect all your opponents.
Many worrying aspects to this game.
1. Buffalo out gained us significantly.
2. The run defense was entirely inadequate. The boys got pushed around quite a lot in the first half. This will be a huge problem as we play better talented teams.
3. The run blocking has not improved much over last season. Buffalo has historically been poor on defense, but in the first half our O line made a hash of things. I think the longest run by a RB was 9 yards? An insufficient running game will be a giant problem when we play teams with DB's who can keep up with our receivers. Moreover if our leading rusher is the QB, I worry that Clifford will miss some snaps or even games due to injury.
On the plus side, the team executed better in the second half (though not with the running game). Hopefully, we will see in season improvements to match the increasingly difficult opposition.
