(WKBW) — Only one more game to go for the Buffalo Bills, who played in their final road game of the 2018 season on Sunday. What they hoped to be a bit of a closer contest, they just couldn't get started in a frustrating 24-12 loss to the New England Patriots.

Up next, the Bills will take on the Miami Dolphins at home in their final contest of the 2018 season. And before that happens, first is an in-depth look at the individual performances from the Week 16 loss to the Patriots, which dropped the Bills' record to 5-10 on the 2018 season.

How the grades work:

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 a 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.

The study accounts only for players that take a snap on offense or defense, and players with under 15 snaps -- unless they have a significant impact on the game -- will not factor into weekly rankings.

Season-long grades have been tallied and documented, with an individual game’s grade weighted for how much the player was on the field in a given week. Those will be available starting in Week Two.

Week 1 - Ravens 47, Bills 3
