After leaving wild card weekend with a 10-3 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars, the Buffalo Bills have announced a change to their coaching staff.
On Friday, the Bills announced that offensive coordinator Rick Dennison has officially been fired. Dennison was only with the Bills for one season, following his two years, leading the Denver Broncos’ offense.
The results from this season have been telling for the former OC. Even though the team was able to slide into postseason, they left with the worst scoring offense among all postseason teams, with an average of 18.9 points per game.
Quarterback Tyrod Taylor had been showing weakness in his passes, and the lack of skill shown on the receiving end has not been helping either. The team ranked 29th in yards per game (302.6), 31st in passing offense (176.6 per tilt), 27th in yards per play (4.8) and 22nd in points per game this season. However, they were able to land the sixth rushing offense (126.1 per game).
This was the Bills’ first playoff game in 17 years. The loss of Dennison will be their fourth OC change since 2014. They will continue looking for new improvements in order to make 2018 a major comeback year.
