Instead, the Buffalo Bills fell short of Super Bowl aspirations in Sunday’s 27-10 AFC Divisional Round loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.
After averaging 28.4 points per game during the regular season, the Bills had their lowest points production of the season. To ben wolin of Boston GlobeJosh Allen called the entire season a disappointment after the bitter ending.
“Everything that happened this year is null and void in our minds,” Allen said. “it’s useless.”
Buffalo began the 2022 campaign as the betting favorites to capture their first Super Bowl title in franchise history. However, for the second straight year the Bills were sent home in the second round.
It’s a heavy result for a team going 13-3 with an AFC-best plus-169 point differential. The Bills dropped their only loss by a combined eight points before a 17-point loss at Highmark Stadium on Sunday.
Allen posted 4,283 passing yards, 762 rushing yards, and 42 total touchdowns in a season that puts him on a short list of MVP candidates. But the 26-year-old didn’t care about those achievements after missing the ultimate goal.
