BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - The Bills offense limped through another game and their performance was a big reason for the 41-9 loss to the Bears on Sunday. Following the game head coach Sean McDermott talked about the ongoing offensive struggles.
Q: How can you explain the lack of production from the offense and Brian Daboll, the
