Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills took another stumble in Week 12, absorbing a 37-34 overtime loss at the hands of the Philadelphia Eagles.

There are more than a handful of fans who pointed out that Buffalo was not aggressive enough toward the end of regulation which could have ended with the AFC East division squad stealing a win in the City of Brotherly Love if only head coach Sean McDermott let his team run a play with 20 seconds remaining on the clock instead of a QB kneel.

McDermott was asked about that play after the game and revealed his reasoning behind the questionable decision.

I thought about it. I thought about going for it. It’s just with their pass rushers and 20 seconds,” the Bills mentor said, per Michael David Smith of Pro Football Talk.

The Bills were in a good position to come away with a win against the Eagles, as they led Philadelphia by 10 points at the half and also by 10 at the start of the fourth quarter. Buffalo also still was in front with under two minutes remaining in the fourth period after a touchdown catch by Gabriel Davis, but defensive shortcomings and the head-scratching decision-making by McDermott down the stretch arguably doomed the Bills.

In any case, the Bills will have to find a way out of a slump. Although Buffalo won in Week 11, that was just against the lowly New York Jets plus that's the only Bills victory over the last four outings.

The Bills have a bye in Week 13 before facing the Kansas City Chiefs on the road in Week 14.
