Watching the patriots not have down weeks for 20  years will do that to a guy.

 

:lol:

 

 

Yeah because they never ever barely squeaked out wins against the Bills right? They always steamrolled us right? Guess selective memory must be a great thing.

 

Have people been out breathing in too much snowblower exhaust fumes this weekend or something?

The Vikings had to go perfect on about 5 or 6 improbable plays involving both the bills offense and defense to win that game.  Maybe logically you will put the blame on only the fumble because it came last, and I’m not trying to say you’re wrong to do that.
 

but the defense had plenty of opportunities to close out that game earlier also so I find it a pointless exercise to place all that blame on just the offense.  If the defense was a little healthier in a comparable way to Dallas’ defense right now, we likely would’ve blown Minnesota out.    
 

 

 

Even Cousins suggested that after the game.

Browns are supposed to have one of the elite O-Lines in the league.  That being said, we controlled Chubb, and despite missing 4 defensive starters, including our #1 and #3 corners, our MLB, , we still had a 3 score lead until giving up a couple of TD's in desperation time for the Browns.

No idea where to post this but I'm pretty sure that Nantz and Romo said during their commentary today that they'll be covering Bills at Lions on Thursday.

 

Arguably allowing the Vikings to get that close to the end zone in the first place helped them win the game. In truth, I'd put more blame on Josh's second interception for the loss than the fumble. But our offense still scored 30 last week; I'd say anything around that ballpark or bigger should result in a win.

They’ve won on Thanksgiving in a game that Nantz/ Romo called. So they’ve got that going for them…which is nice.

Actually yes. Did you watch the Eagles squeak out a 17-16 win against Indy late in the 4th quarter? They looked like trash last week against Washington too.

 

Complaining when the Bills scored on 7 straight possessions and put up 31 points is pretty mind boggling. Could they be better? Sure. Will they? Highly likely. 

 

Last week they looked terrible putting up 500 yards of offense?? 

 

Newsflash...lots of teams tend to struggle at this time of the year. The last 3 SB winning teams all did.

 

Nothing mattered this game with everything going on other than getting a win. The fact they did so after going down early and then reeling off 22 unanswered points is a good sign. The fact Allen took the throws he was given and didn't try forcing the ball was a good sign. No turnovers. That's what they needed in THIS game.

 

As Allen says "It doesn't matter if it's by 1 or 100, a win is a win."

 

You should do well to realize that and stop worrying about how it "looked".

 

I’m not complaining at all. Very happy about the win. What my point was this team should handle a bad browns team with a back up QB and injuries. They beat them but not as soundly as I had hoped.

I'm not a fan of how the D seemingly let's teams back into games either but I think they will figure it out. It's very out of character to allow this type of yardage to opponents by our pass D.

Allen LOVES playing on Thanksgiving.

    I don't need this team to beat all opponents e as silly.  Seems they lose focus when it's too easy.  So let them just steadily keep grinding out the dubs. No bonus points given if you clinch first seed then lose focus to be shaky in playoffs.  

I get that. The point was a SB fave should’ve beat them up. It’s more than just one game now.

I think people have been hearing the whole ‘injuries are no excuse’ mantra for years and take it a bit too literally these days lol. Edmunds may not be elite but the falloff from him to Bernard/Dodson is massive and we’ve had those guys in for Milano or edmunds for three straight weeks now.  Couple that with missing  a great pass rusher like Rousseau and two starting safeties the last few weeks and two starting corners and you can easily struggle against any team let alone a team with justin Jefferson. 
 

bernard/Dodson have been getting absolutely victimized 

 

if it was more like ‘we lost edmunds and his backup played ok’ and we still got demolished then I’d be a bit more concerned.

Not sure what you mean here. We’re saying that the Bills should’ve handled the browns easily. They didn’t. 


The Chiefs should have handled the Raiders and didn’t. They barely won.

 

The Eagles should have handled the Colts today but didn’t. They barely won.

 

The Ravens should have handled the Panthers today but didn’t and barely won.

 

Every good team has games like this. So not sure what your point is other than showing your point isn’t a smart one.

Bills fans who attended the game today in Detroit...Does this experience make you believe it's a good idea to build a new outdoor stadium in Western NY? 

Unfortunately, what the fans want is of no importance to the people making the decisions.

For the final time. If it’s one game here and there I agree. ITS NOT ONE GAME.
