Coming into the 2023 NFL season, the Buffalo Bills were thought to be one of the best all-around teams in the league, with a legitimate shot at winning the Super Bowl.
Ten games into the regular season, the Bills are sitting at 5-5 after having lost an ugly game at home to the Denver Broncos, who have struggled all season under new head coach Sean Payton.
The Bills simply couldn’t get anything going against the Broncos, and when Buffalo had the game in hand against Denver, they fell flat with some mental mistakes and poor playcalling.
As a result of one of their worst losses of the season in Week 10, the Bills brass decided to make a drastic change in hopes of getting the season turned around on the offensive side of the football by firing offensive coordinator Ken Dorsey.
On Tuesday, head coach Sean McDermott addressed the media and talked about why the Bills made the move to let Dorsey go, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

With the Bills failing to live up to expectations at this point in the season and suffering a loss in a game they should’ve won against an inferior opponent, the team clearly needed a fall guy, with Dorsey shouldering the blame for the team’s shortcomings.
With Joe Brady now being the team’s offensive coordinator moving forward in the wake of Dorsey’s dismissal, it’ll be interesting to see what changes are made and if Buffalo can salvage their season after a disappointing outcome after 10 games.NEXT: Analyst Brings Up Tom Brady's Past Advice For Josh Allen
