If Allen can keep adapting to what defenses are doing. I think the Bills will be right there at the end. The schedule alone shoup keep the Bills nipping at the Pats

If the Bills win the next 2, it will be the Putz keeping up.

You and I have been talking about Bills football for years ( old board )....I don't always agree with you, but I respect your fandom....and your ability to keep positive for all those wasted years....I unfortunately think NE beats us twice and goes on to do what they do in the playoffs....their D is top 5 and their offense is potentially lethal......but I will say this....the Bills are truly getting closer....in previous seasons, it was more wishful thinking...but now, with McD and JA, the improvements are tangible....and are real.......we all know there's no such thing as a moral victory....but if we can keep it close this seasons in our 2 games vs them....IMO, it will be a real sign of progression....as oppose to " oh well...we got lucky and almost beat them ".....

I don’t necessarily disagree. I just try to set the past aside when approaching a new season.  And this season, we have what looks to be a very good team.  Are the Pats better?  Yes - but they’re a division rival that our current regime now knows well.  Any team that hopes to be a contender should have an expectation of a split in those circumstances.

 

Though, I agree that their D is scary good now.

 

But ours is no slouch.  I want that win at home.  This team can do it this year.  We have to end the cycle and annual expectation of a sweep.

 

Helps that Brown is out of the picture now, too.  Tre can handle Gordon.

Well the Patriots just became more human in more ways than one.

Lol nothing changed the patriots where going 12-14 wins without AB. Having AB made 16 wins possible.

Actually a big thing changed. They look like chumps. (maybe not to you.)

I'm not sure you know what nothing means.

“Nothing changed” is indicative of perhaps a slight detachment from reality.

 

BB is always portrayed as being flawless, and this was a huge miscalculation.  Very embarrassing for him and the organization.

 

We’ll also see how good that offense is when you start to play a few real teams.

The Patriots are a Josh Gordon suspension away from having Edelman, Dorsett, Jakobi Meyers, Matt Slater and Gunner Olszewski forming their top 5 WR.

AB cost them Demarius Thomas, which was big insurance for Gordon.

 

At TE they have Matt Lacosse, Ryan Izzo and Ben Watson. Lacosse and Izzo are fighting injuries.

 

2 linemen are out on IR (LT Isaiah Wynn (may return) and C - David Andrews Season)). Marshall Newhouse, yes that Marshall Newhouse is the starting LT.

RT Marcus Cannon is fighting through injuries.

 

It is there for the taking. What is the over under in games before Josh Gordon finds a dime bag?

Nailed it. Pats have flaws. But everyone ignores that because they are the Pats.

The fact they've won roughly 77% of their games in the last 19 years is the reason fans are hesitant to claim their demise.....how many times have we heard that because player X and Y are gone or injured, NE will falter....so far, these fans look like fools........they have flaws, but are still one of.... if not the best team in the NFL....and they keep proving their detractors wrong....year after year...game after game....the ONLY thing that matters is Brady and BB...if those 2 are there, NE will a tough out.....

And do you know that means? Their end is closer.

On that, we 100% agree.....I just don't think it's this year...I was sure, after last year, that it was over...didn't expect them to be even better in 2019...

If the Bills win this week, and then beat the Pats next week....I'll strongly entertain they can win the division for sure. Beating New England is the hard part...but if they pull it off...sure, they might win the division.

 

Brady looks good through 2 weeks, but for the last few years...he has (mostly) faded as the games pile up during the season.  He is usually not the same QB in December and January as he is in September.  The suspension a couple of years ago actually helped him and the Pats...if you look at his performance...having only 12 games played by the end of the year gave him one of his better Decembers in the past few years.  Last year he faded for sure late in the season and in the playoffs he did not carry that team.

 

BUT, that Pats game is critical. Not just because its the Pats though.....I love that the Bills are 2-0, but personally I won't feel great until I can see them get a few impressive wins over top 10 teams (Pats, KC, Rams, Chargers, Baltimore, N. Orleans...etc)
