Bills’ blueprint helps eliminate Ravens, Lamar Jackson; Did Titans give Bills, Josh Allen one in return?

Recommended Posts

For those who have a vicious hatred of Lamar Jackson, you can thank HCSM and DCLF partly for helping provide the blue-print for his elimination...despite the EPIC stats he put up.  Those with this level of hatred don't have to see the Bills loss to the Ravens as a complete waste.

After a record-breaking season that’s likely going to earn Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson the NFL Most Valuable Player award, the Tennessee Titans forced him into three turnovers and eliminated the Ravens to advance to the AFC title game next week.

How did the No. 6 Titans do it?

Tennessee cornerback Logan Ryan gave a hat tip to the Buffalo Bills and what they were able to do against the Ravens in a 24-17 loss in Week 14.

 

“We wanted to give (Jackson) loaded boxes all night to get him out of the run game. We were either playing with a loaded box and man to man and make him beat us throwing the ball outside mano-a-mano, or we were going to play a zone defense, a quarters defense similar to what Buffalo did,” Ryan said, per Bleacher Report’s Ty Dunne. “And Buffalo played them well. Buffalo just didn’t score a lot of points on offense.”

The Bills defense suffocated Jackson in that regular season contest, holding him to 145 yards passing and 40 yards rushing - one of his least productive yardage days on the season. He did throw three touchdown passes that were the difference in the game, but the Titans seemed to have perfected what the Bills tried to do on Saturday night. Jackson threw for a whopping 365 yards on 59 passes but in doing so turned the ball over three times (two interceptions and a fumble). He completed just 52 percent of his passes. He ran the ball 20 times for 143 yards but the Ravens scored just 12 points.

 

“We had eight-, nine-man boxes all night. You play Madden and run Engage Eight all day, it’s hard to run the ball. We pretty much did that and we got a lead,” Ryan said. “And once we got a lead, they had to go to the pass game and that’s our strength with the (defensive backs) we have and having the ball skills we have. When we get a lead, we can get some interceptions.”

When the Titans had the ball quarterback Ryan Tannehill may have provided the blueprint for Bills quarterback Josh Allen’s success in 2020. He was 7 of 14 passing for 88 yards and two touchdowns. He didn’t turn the ball over and made the most of his opportunities, connecting on a pair of touchdown passes.

Allen threw 46 passes against the Houston Texans in a 22-19 overtime loss in the Wild-Card Round. He completed just 52.2 percent of his throws and the Bills’ failure to end scoring drives with touchdowns instead of field goals (they kicked four in the game) cost them the game.

To be fair, the Titans won the game on the strength of running back Derrick Henry’s assault on the Baltimore defense. He ran it 30 times for 195 yards, averaging 6.5 per carry. Bills running backs Devin Singletary and Frank Gore carried it a combined 21 times against the Texans.

 

A simple look at the way the Bills and Titans ran their offense would suggest the Bills need to address their secondary running back position this offseason and rely on the run game more in 2020. If Allen can take the necessary steps to become a more efficient passer, especially if he’s asked to throw less, then there’s no reason the Bills and their top-ranked defense can’t be in a similar position in 2020.

Had the Bills defeated the Texans they’d be playing against the Kansas City Chiefs today (Sunday) for a chance to host the AFC Championship Game against the Titans. It’s a bitter pill to swallow for Bills fans as they watch the rest of the Divisional Round play out, but there’s a significant amount of potential for Buffalo moving forward. It has a defense built to combat the modern dual threat quarterback and they have one of those quarterbacks in place to run their offense.

next year everyone with any sort of talent will follow the blueprint and all of us with "hatred" of Lamar will be justified in our "reality" that he's a 1 trick pony who's fuse will fizzle quickly.     Maybe him and his fizzle buddies can petition the NCAA to let them go back and play in college. 


Sin is nothing to celebrate, have pride in, or hold parades for. The rainbow is a symbol of promise not a symbol of depravity.

Sneaky way of saying "The Bills QB just didn't play well".

The Baltimore game was when I knew our defense was legit.

They had a dumb fucking blown coverage on the Hurst TD, and then a Borq punt that set them up inside the 50.

Baltimore wasn't manufacturing shit besides that.  As long as your DB's aren't getting lost in play action, and the front 7 is flowing and getting Lamar to constantly stretch to the sidelines it's not that crazy.

Which, in the NFL, revolves 95% around how good your QB is.

Sorry, it's the entire offense.
