The Jets and Pats also lost.
Bills alone in first.
Who would have thonk it.
I don't think it will last. I still see the Patriots winning the division.
And the dolphins were 2 minutes away from getting back into things. FML
Rams and Chiefs are worse than the Dolphins are in terms of points scored/allowed. Yay
Bills fans have always billieved. That's what it means to be a fan.
Having said that, we have a long way to go before we are winning the division. It's a long season and this team is finally getting the ball to bounce their way. This was a huge win for the team and the city. It's step 1 and I can't wait to see where it leads. So far, 3-0, leading the division with the highest scoring offense in the NFL.
We shall see how it all plays out.
Im not shocked by this Buffalo got really good towards the end of the season last year.
Congrats to the Bills, it won't last but at least they have hope now. Now is when it becomes difficult for them, b/c now they will be expected to win for the first time and crazy fans and media will begin talking playoffs and div titles- now we will see what they are made of but through 3 games I stand up and applaud. They have played really well.
I think the BILLS are one of the more complete teams in the AFC right now... And NO, I didn't think that 3 games ago.
What has changed for me is the emergence of the Offensive Line and the Defensive Line respectively.
Fitz has been sacked once, and Freddy is running through huge cut back lanes, which is something no RB on this team has seen in 10 years.... This group has stepped up and has taken on two of the most formidable Dlines in football in the Raiders and the Pats.... Also, this offense in general was pretty "OK" last season....they are just building off where they were last year so this production isn't a fluke... However, the play of the Oline is surprising and is adding to their success.
The Defensive Line is 100 miles from where they were last year. The addition of Dareus is unmistakeable and they still are playing their backup DE while Troup is out. So this unit can actually get BETTER... Kyle Williams is the definition of an over achiever...
With the LB addition of Barnett and Merriman and they are stout against the run.
Apparently, they have not played a pass rush game plan yet... and from what I have seen, there has not been a single blitz that I have recognized. Games 1 and 2 were run stop plans 100%. The Pats game apparently was a non-pressure plan with the idea of blocking Brady's passing lanes, which worked yesterday, though not flawlessly....
This is a completely different team from last year mainly because of the trenches. To not see it or not agree is just being blind to reality.
The season is a marathon and so far the Bills have looked good (especially Fitzpatrick). I am impressed with how they handle the pressure of being down big in the second half. Both of their comebacks against the Raiders and esp the Pats were great to watch if you're an NFL fan.
