Bills shutout Patriots. Here are three takeaways from the game.
Last Sunday, the Buffalo Bills did the unthinkable and shutout the New England Patriots in Foxboro 16 – 0. It was the first time the Patriots were shutout at Gillette Stadium. The last time the Patriots were shutout at home was all the way back on November 28, 1993 when they lost 6 – 0 to the New York Jets.
The Bills played as a unit and for a change, it was the Patriots squad making stupid penalties on offense and defense which extended drives for the Bills and pushed the Patriots back on critical third downs.
It was a thing of beauty and something I’ll never forget. Just like I’ll never forget this beautiful GIF that was given to us and will be with us for eternity as a result of the game.
Ok. Sorry. Enough peacocking around. I just haven’t been this happy after a game on a Sunday in a while. There were some real changes the Bills made to their offensive scheme, they have had some bargain free agent signings who have contributed immensely on the defensive side of the ball and some chemistry is developing on the offensive side of the ball.
Let’s start with the offensive tweaks on the next slide.
