This gained’t assist Ken Dorsey’s status for mood tantrums.

Receiver Isaiah McKenzie caught a brief go from quarterback Josh Allen and turned the ball up the sector earlier than getting tackled with 9 seconds left. The Payments didn’t have time to spike the ball to arrange the game-winning try earlier than time expired.
It did seem as if McKenzie had an opportunity to get out of bounds at one level.
“I used to be making an attempt to get out of bounds. I used to be additionally making an attempt to get yards,” McKenzie instructed reporters. “I knew [Buffalo place-kicker Tyler Bass’] vary, so I used to be making an attempt to get out of bounds but in addition stand up the sector. I attempted to get out of bounds.
“There was 9 seconds left, and I used to be making an attempt to get to the hash — and I type of bought bumped by going to the ref, and it simply went down from there. If I may take it again, I might most likely simply go up area, get down, put it on the hash myself and stay to struggle one other down.”

Within the preseason, Allen joked that Dorsey needed to coach from the sales space as an alternative of the sidelines to keep away from getting flags due to how “fiery” he was.
“I prefer to suppose I’m not an excessive amount of of a psychopath. it most likely wouldn’t harm to be up within the field in that regard,” Dorsey stated in response.

“He’s such a aggressive man,” Payments defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier stated. “He desires to win each scenario. … I believe our gamers appear to be they feed off of it. I do know we had been in coaching camp, and even after we had been competing in opposition to one another in OTAs, I may sense the offense actually having that very same sort of depth that Kenny type of coaches with; however but, he’s a man who’s in a position to reign it again when he must and take it in a unique route, to encourage gamers on the identical time.”
Sunday’s loss dropped the Payments to 2-1. They tackle the Ravens in Baltimore in Week 4.
