Bills Fans Accuse Texans Of Cheating To Win
Bills fans accused the Texans of cheating to win on Saturday.
Houston ultimately emerged victorious from its AFC Wild Card showdown with Buffalo, but it was not without controversy.
The Texans battled back after being down 16-0 in the third quarter to force overtime, and eventually, the win.
Saturday’s big hero proved to be Houston quarterback Deshaun Watson, who somehow avoided a sack despite being surrounded by two guys, only to deliver a perfect pass to running back Taiwan Jones.
Jones’ run then got his team into field goal range, leading to a 28-yard Kai Fairbairn field goal that ended the game.
Unfortunately, the only reason Watson had that opportunity was due to a blown call earlier in the outing when the officials missed a delay of game on a third-and-18 earlier in the drive.

On the aforementioned play, the play clock very clearly hits 0 – but the refs did not blow it dead. If they had, the game could have turned out very differently.
Instead, Watson was able to get the ball to Duke Johnson, who ultimately delivered the 18-yards his team needed.
Needless to say, Bills fans were not happy after the game.
Wasn’t that delay of game? Geez…

Why isn’t anyone, including Bills coaches losing their minds over that being a delay of game

Did Buffalo get cheated out of its shot at the second of the playoffs? That is up to each individual fan to decide on their own.
