ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — Those supposedly easily correctible fixes for the Washington Football Team’s defense have failed to materialize.

The once-stout unit was dissected by Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills in a 43-21 loss.

The game slipped away when Washington allowed Buffalo to engineer a 17-play, 93-yard scoring drive on the Bills’ opening possession of the second half.

Buffalo’s 43 points and 481 yards were the most allowed since coach Ron Rivera took over last year.
