The Buffalo Bills, fresh off of a bye week, find themselves at an impasse. After an impressive 3-1 start to the season, they have struggled to maintain momentum, losing three of their last four matches and failing to secure consecutive victories with their powerful offense averaging 27.3 points per game.

At their most recent matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles, the Buffalo Bills endured a heart-wrenching 37-34 overtime loss that left fans gasping. Quarterback Josh Allen showcased his dual-threat prowess by amassing 339 passing yards, two touchdown passes, and two rushing scores; yet their inability to close out the game raises questions about resilience and late-game execution.
