The no-huddle offense wasn’t much of a factor for the Buffalo Bills in 2018, and they were the least successful team in the NFL when they did use it. That’s no shock.

Since you've had a couple days to look back at it and have a practice or two in there, just review what the quarterbacks did for us? A: Yeah, [it was a] typical preseason game. There's a lot of good things to learn from, overall as an offense op…
