That blindside block call was BS
That was some kind of horrible call there, you're right. It looked like he tickled the defender with a feather.

Officials have got to be better than that.

That was the back breaker. It's 4th and 4 from the 38 and I'm pretty sure Buffalo would have gone for it.

There was a first down late in the 4th that was clearly short by half a yard. They reviewed it and the call stood... how? it was clear the guy was short but they gave it to him anyway

The way it works is there is an official looking at the clock and if it hits zero then he looks at the ball and if they snap it at that time then they don't call it a delay of game. It's not immediately a flag.

Bills got hosed a few times. That blind side block wasn't even blind. Hit him in the front of the shoulder.
That's a newer rule that if you peel back you cannot hit them high. If he had used his hands instead of the helmet it would have been legal.
