The Buffalo Bills have come up short with a second straight overtime loss, this time Kansas City had the best of them winning 13-10. Only watching the last 2 minutes and a bit of the overtime from beautiful Mexico, it appeared that the Bills could pull it off. Having made a 53 yard field after Todd Haley called a timeout, Lindell went on to miss his second attempt, giving Kansas City life. It was a back and forth overtime only having the Chiefs win with 8 seconds left on a 35 yard field goal. I don’t follow many other teams but do others lose in the same fashion as the Bills do?
The Bills rank last in the league in defending the rush with an outstanding 188 yards per game. They let Kansas City rack up 274 on the ground with only 152 in the air. If only the offense and defense could be on the same page for a whole game they would probably be in the hunt for a wild card spot. In order for them to get a few wins under their belts they will have to keep trying as hard they can, never give up and stay positive. They are knocking on the doorstep but I feel someone has to step up in that locker room and give these guys the push they need.
On my drive home from Toronto on Monday, I had the opportunity to listen to Jim Rome on the radio. For the first time in a very long time Rome spoke about the Bills, giving them some relevance in the NFL. He called them “warriors” and the best 0-7 team in recent history. Also stating that he would pay money to see the Bills rather then seeing the lifeless and lack luster Dallas Cowboys. Continuing to say that at least the Bills don’t give up. I find this to be very true, the only game this year that they were completely dead against was the week 4, 38-14 loss against the Jets.
It’s hard to know what to cheer for these days, should I cheer for them to lose and get first pick in next years draft? Or cheer for a win? The answer is quite simple; a win! I just ask for their best effort, I will continue to watch every week, cheer every week and keep telling myself that things will get better.
