Yesterday the Buffalo Bills looked bad when it came to the penalties. Buffalo was penalized 11 times, including four offside calls on defense, for 106 yards during a 19-18 loss to the Colts. After the game, coach Rex Ryan said it’s time to leave those issues in the past.
“The mistakes that we made, as I pointed out to our team, it’s like we’ve got to turn the page on that,” Ryan said, via the Buffalo News. “That was last year’s team, and we can’t have that. … That blueprint was what last year’s blueprint was and, as a team, there isn’t anybody that’s in [the locker room] that’s happy with that performance just because of that.”
Bills have been working to fix their mistakes but have been struggling to get past the problem. At practice the Bills players will run laps when they make a mistake. The entire defense should have ran a lap last night, because they had several really dumb penalties.
