May we quote the exact wording of last week’s game recap?
The Bills won that one? How? They weren’t supposed to.
Yep. Color us suprised again. There is something different about this team.
Is it the new coach? Is it a new attitude? Is it the return of the old defensive style?
It’s more. It’s just undeniable. Something is surprisingly different about this team.
Even more surprising is that breaks are going the way of the Bills. A Matt Ryan “New Tuck Rule” misplay got the ball into the hands of Tre’Davious White and we were off to the races.
The defense stopped a 4th and goal at the end of the game, when normally this is where we Bills fans would cry into our beers and yell obscenties about the Pegulas.
And did a Bills kicker just make a monster, clutch field goal?
Yep. How about two of them… 56 and 55 yards. (Phone call for Dan Carpenter.)
True First Place is here. Our excpectations are growing.
When is the last time you said “Trap Game?” It’s kind of fun to know we should beat the Bengals next week.
Ahh…should. Still a Bills fan, always a Bills fan.
