The Cincinnati Bengals shocked everybody when they upset the Buffalo Bills 27-10 as six-point underdogs this past January to advance to the AFC Championship Game during a snow-filled game.
Former Bills, now Colts wide receiver Isaiah Mckenzie described how Buffalo ran plays that may have been too difficult because of mother nature sending snow to the ground during the game.
He even stated that the game would’ve been different if they played in a dome.
“The Bengals ran basic routes, maybe we should’ve did that, ran basic routes,” McKenzie explained to Go Long’s, Tyler Dunne. “Like out routes, go balls, you know, instead of running routes that you have to be going lateral or coming back to the football, or turning and running curls and things like that. If we were in a dome it would have been a totally different game.”
