The Buffalo Bills took their talents to New England for Week 4 in hopes of starting a two-game winning streak early in the season. Did we get the results we wanted?
The Buffalo Bills managed to do something in New England that hasn’t been done since 1993.
In their 16-0 victory over the New England Patriots, the Bills became the first team since the to hand the Pats a shutout on their home turf. It’s a big accomplishment for a team that started this season with a loss vs. the Baltimore Ravens and a loss vs. the New York Jets.
Coming into this week, the Bills were hoping for a victory vs. the 3-0 Patriots and losses for both the Miami Dolphins and New York Jets — who were playing the Cincinnati Bengals and Seattle Seahawks, respectively. If those three results were to happen, the Bills would secure a 2nd place spot in the AFC East.
Well, everything went according to plan for Buffalo. Their shutout victory was their second win in a row after a rough 0-2 start. On the other hand, the Cincinnati Bengals handed Miami a 22-7 loss and the Seattle Seahawks managed a 27-17 victory over the Jets.
With that, the Bills are only one game behind the Patriots — who are now at 3-1 — with the Jets and Dolphins trailing the Bills by one game at 1-3. Buffalo is now back on track and enjoying a 2-0 record since firing offensive coordinator Greg Roman and promoting Anthony Lynn to fill his void.
As we all enjoy our second straight Victory Monday, let’s take a good look at some of Sunday’s best highlights, stats and reactions from the team.
