“This is probably the most adversity we’ve had to go through since I’ve been here,” said Davis. “It feels like there’s something missing, you know? We’ve shown that we can play at a high level, but the consistency makes us think, ‘What the (expletive) is going on?’”
The Bills have been the most puzzling team in the NFL this year. There have been times where they have looked thoroughly dominant, like between Weeks 2 and 4 when they won three straight games and outscored their opponents 123-33. But then, there have been instances where they have looked strangely vulnerable, like in their ugly losses to the New York Jets and New England Patriots or when they barely beat a depleted New York Giants squad several weeks ago.
“At the end of the day, it’s our team,” Davis added. “The media, the coaches, the fans, anybody can say whatever they want. We just have to believe in each other and play for each other and have the same agenda. I think we do have that, but the inconsistency is killing us all.”
Davis has logged 31 catches for 434 yards and five touchdowns through nine games this season.
The 24-year-old, who played his collegiate football at the University of Central Florida, was selected by Buffalo in the fourth round of the 2020 NFL Draft.
Since then, Davis has been a consistent secondary threat in the Bills’ offense, with his most productive campaign to date coming last year when he hauled in 48 receptions for 836 yards and five scores.
However, Davis was a non-factor in Buffalo’s loss to the Cincinnati Bengals last weekend, as he went without a catch on two targets. It marked the first time Davis failed to register a reception this season.
The Bills are 5-4 and will take on the Denver Broncos on Monday night.
