Joe B: Buffalo Bills All-22 Review vs. Oakland Raiders (11/1/17)

(WKBW) - The Buffalo Bills came into a key game against an AFC opponent with many playoff implications, and ended up blowing the Oakland Raiders out en route to their most impressive victory of the 2017 season.

How they’re graded:

Every Tuesday, when the All-22 film becomes available, we’ll go through and watch each play and every player on each play as many times as necessary, to assess a letter grade for that game to the player. It is subjective analysis, and it’s important to note that we do not know the play calls and full responsibilities. With that written, the grades stem from technique, outstanding efforts, and presumed liability.

Only players that take a snap on offense or defense are accounted for, and players with under 15 snaps, unless they have a significant impact on the game, will not be factored into weekly rankings. 

Season-long grades have been tallied and documented, with each individual game’s grade being weighted for how much the player was on the field in a given week. Those can be seen above.
