Following a disappointing loss to the Denver Broncos on Monday night, the Buffalo Bills swiftly recognized the need for change and took decisive action.
On Tuesday, the Bills parted ways with offensive coordinator Ken Dorsey and appointed quarterbacks coach Joe Brady as the interim OC.
Dorsey, previously the quarterbacks coach, assumed the role of OC in 2022 after Brian Daboll’s departure to become head coach of the New York Giants. In the wake of the recent challenges, Buffalo has turned to Brady, who has prior experience as an offensive coordinator during his tenure with the Carolina Panthers from 2020-21 as part of Matt Rhule’s coaching staff.
While Ken Dorsey shoulders some of the responsibility, online critics have also targeted Josh Allen’s girlfriend, Hailee Steinfeld, suggesting a link to the team’s struggles. This isn’t the first time Hailee Steinfeld has been a subject of scrutiny among Bills fans.

The Bills’ record fell to 5-5 with the loss on Monday, marking a 2-4 record since their Week 4 victory over the Miami Dolphins. Buffalo has not surpassed the 30-point mark since that game and is averaging 20.5 points during this stretch.
The game against the Broncos was particularly disappointing due to frequent offensive mistakes, including a season-high four turnovers, with star quarterback Josh Allen contributing three (two interceptions and a fumble). Allen has thrown an interception in six consecutive games and currently leads the NFL with 11 picks and 13 turnovers.
It remains to be seen if any of Josh Allen’s challenges are genuinely connected to his girlfriend. Only time will reveal the true factors at play.
