The Buffalo Bills have fired offensive coordinator Ken Dorsey after the team slumped to a third defeat in four games with a last-gasp loss to the Denver Broncos on Monday.
Broncos kicker Will Lutz secured a 24-22 victory with a walk-off field goal to condemn the Bills to another defeat, dropping Buffalo to 5-5 and leaving them on the outside looking in when it comes to the AFC playoff picture.
The Bills had four turnovers, with quarterback Josh Allen throwing two interceptions and also losing a fumble, but it is Dorsey who has paid the price for Buffalo’s poor form as the franchise announced his departure as offensive coordinator on Tuesday.
Joe Brady, previously the quarterbacks coach, will take over as interim offensive coordinator after the dismissal of Dorsey, which has come in spite of the Bills ranking third in the NFL for yards per play (6.0) and second in completion percentage (70.3%).

Despite those numbers, the Bills had not scored more than 25 points since Week 4 and had struggled with turnovers over that period, with Allen leading the NFL with 13 turnovers this season, while the team suffered losses to the likes of the New England Patriots and Denver Broncos, who still possessed losing records even after their victory over Buffalo.
The Bills will look to get it going again offensively on Sunday in a crucial AFC East clash against the New York Jets, before a tricky three-game run sees them take on the Philadelphia Eagles, Kansas City Chiefs and Dallas Cowboys, a crucial part of the schedule if they are to make it to the postseason.
