Billieve: Heartbreak in Houston

On a special playoff edition of Billieve, host John Boccacino breaks down how the Buffalo Bills' season came to a disappointing end thanks to a 22-19 overtime loss to the Houston Texans in a dramatic Wild Card game. Among the topics covered: Boccacino recaps a game the Bills should have won -- where the offense was clicking in the first half but ultimately settled for too many field goals instead of touchdowns. We give credit to Leslie Frazier's defense, which dominated in the opening half and applied consistent pressure on Deshaun Watson, who ultimately rebounded in the second half to rescue the Texans from a 16-point deficit; there was plenty of good (and a lot of head-scratching bad plays) from Josh Allen; why did Brian Daboll go away from Devin Singletary in crunch time? We also address the controversy involving the second half opening kickoff; analyze the (bogus) blindside block call in overtime that cost the Bills a shot at a game-winning field goal, and more on the latest episode of Billieve!
