Prior to the start of the 2015 NFL season, the Buffalo Bills were expected to be one of the hottest teams in the league this year. They started off in a big way and it looked like they were real contenders to make the playoffs.
However, they have fallen off the last few weeks and are now sitting at 6-8 and out of the playoffs. It looks like there could be a bigger problem off the field for the Bills.
According to the Buffalo News, running back Boobie Dixon talked about how the team doesn’t have enough leadership in their locker room. This has, in turn, affected the way they play on the field.
“We have to come together more,” Dixon said. “I feel like we could’ve done that even more this year. We could’ve come together more at times when stuff was not going well. That was lacking.”
The Bills certainly have most of the pieces to be a contender in the AFC, but if they don’t get the leadership they need, they will never be successful.
