The Buffalo Bills’ latest loss has guaranteed the team two things
: their worst season since 2013 and a top-12 pick in the upcoming 2019 NFL Draft. The 24-12 loss to the New England Patriots leaves Buffalo with a record of 5-10 Russell Bodine Jerseys 2019 , tied with five other teams, including the New York Giants. Because the Giants have the exact same strength-of-schedule as Buffalo, a coin flip would determine who gets the seventh pick and who receives the eighth.Here’s where the top eight spots in the draft currently stand—pending Monday Night Football—along with the accompanying record for each team:Arizona Cardinals: 3-12Oakland Raiders: 3-11*San Francisco 49ers: 4-11 New York Jets: 4-11 Detroit Lions: 5-10Tampa Bay Buccaneers: 5-10New York Giants: 5-10** Buffalo Bills: 5-10** *Pending the results of Monday Night Football** A coin toss would decide who picks firstWith only the Miami Dolphins left on the schedule, the Bills have guaranteed themselves a top-12 draft pick. The question for the final game of the season is if that pick will be inside of the top ten. The Raiders, 49ers, Jets and Giants will all be playing teams that have already secured spots in the playoffs, so their opponents may be willing to sit some or all of their starters. Furthermore, the Lions and Buccaneers will be playing the Green Bay Packers and Atlanta Falcons—both very winnable games. Buffalo may see a motivated Miami team next Sunday White Phillip Gaines Jerseys , because although the Dolphins were just eliminated from the playoffs with their loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars, the team will likely be playing for coach Adam Gase’s continued employment. Stephen Ross might already have his finger on the “reboot” button, meaning the entire Dolphins organization will be playing for their jobs in Orchard Park next week.Buffalo Bills rookies had ups and downs against Los Angeles Chargers The Buffalo Bills sank to 0-2 on Sunday courtesy of Phillip Rivers and the Los Angeles Chargers. Josh Allen’s first NFL start was a mixed bag while Tremaine Edmunds struggled with indecision on several big plays by the offense. More about the performance of the Bills’ entire 2018 rookie class below.QB Josh AllenThe first-rounder played like a rookie against the Chargers, while mixing in a fair amount of “wow” throws to keep it interesting. Allen was a bit gun-shy in the first half and was careful not to take many risks with the football, especially when the down and distance wasn’t favorable. Brian Daboll mixed in some quick, short throws to the running back to get the rookie up to speed early. Unfortunately, the lack of a running game meant that Allen was put in some difficult situations early and he struggled on third downs. The gloves came off, however Phillip Gaines Jerseys 2019 , when the team was down 28-3. Allen uncorked an unbelievable throw to Charles Clay that took an equally unbelievable play by Derwin James to break up. Then Allen threw an absolute bomb to Zay Jones down the sideline. Allen was much more aggressive in the second half, including two ill-advised throws that resulted in interceptions. Overall, an up-and-down day for the 7th overall pick.LB Tremaine EdmundsEdmunds clearly struggles with any type of misdirection in the backfield and the Chargers took full advantage on Sunday. On a 16-yard reverse to Austin Ekler early in the second quarter and on the Chargers third touchdown of the day, the offense’s use of some sort of fake in the backfield got Edmunds to pause just enough to break off a big play. It’s not that the rookie lacks speed, it’s that his speed can’t make up for his mental mistakes. After the Phillip Gaines injury, Buffalo was forced to play much more base defense, and it left Edmunds severely exposed when lined up in coverage against wide receivers in the slot. Like Allen, Edmunds needs to continue taking his lumps while learning on the job.DT Harrison PhillipsA largely quiet day again for the third-rounder as he was only on field for 19 snaps White Marshall Newhouse Jerseys , or 33% of the overall defensive plays. With only 3 total tackles and 1 solo tackle, Phillips really could use a break-out game.CB Taron JohnsonJohnson was inactive for the day as he continues to rehab his shoulder injury suffered against the Baltimore Ravens. In addition to Johnson, fellow rookies G Wyatt Teller, G Ike Boettger and WR Ray-Ray McCloud were all inactive. S Siran NealNeal saw only three snaps on defense and only recorded a single tackle. WR Robert FosterFoster was on the field for about 50% of the offensive snaps and had a nifty toss-sweep run late in the first quarter that gained about 12 yards. Then he wasn’t targeted again until the final drive of the game on a 33-yard completion from Allen. Foster should get more opportunities as the season goes on.P Corey BojorquezIn his home debut, Bojorquez punted five times for an average distance of 44.6 yards, with a long of 54. His best punt came in the middle of the second quarter, being able to punt from his own 20-yard line to the opposite 20-yard line while leaving plenty of height for the coverage team to wrap up the returner immediately.
