Buffalo over the Patriots? Last happened in 2003 and 2000 before that. It may happen, but I sure wouldn't put money on it.

And I thoroughly agree. . . . .Buffalo is the absolute longest shot to beat the Patriots, but I will never say they can't, and honestly - that's the most exciting 'what if' pick anyone can choose. If Buffalo does beat the Patriots this weekend, think of the morale boost that would be for other teams going up against them. . . . . . .I love it.

I think Buffalo is capable of beating NE, they have to play a mistake free game and force some turnovers to do it though, having said that I dont think they will beat them. It's the first time since the mid 90's I'm thinking Buffalo will win a game against a quality opponent.Buffalo has played with confidence the first 2 games this year, something I haven't seen from them since the mid 90's. If Fitz can take advantage of NE's 31 st ranked pass defense this could be the upset this week. Anyways , it's nice to be able to think the Bills can get it together. Ya gotta Billieve!

Come on people . . . . that game was awesome. Best game of the day!!!! Yeah Buffalo!!!! They'll probably go 0-13 for the rest of the season, but they beat the Pats. That's good enough for me.

I hate to utter the words out loud for fear of the Bills being jinxed or whatever, but they look for real. Unfortunately I wasnt able to watch but the last 1:43 of it, I had to suffer through a Dolphins game living in S FL. The bills schedule in October looks challenging.Looks like Gaily and Nix's plan is working in western NY. I think this is a game the Bills would have lost last year.

October
@ Cincinnati Bengals Sunday, October 02 2011 1:00 PM EDT
Philadelphia Eagles Sunday, October 09 2011 1:00 PM EDT
@ New York Giants Sunday, October 16 2011 1:00 PM EDT
Washington Redskins Sunday, October 30 2011 4:05 PM EDT

Cincy should be a win, not sure about the rest of the games.

WTF imaginary touchdown-invalidating hold by the Bears?

The one announcer thought he called it on 21, who didn't remotely make contact with anyone during the entire play. The other guy thought they called it on 29. There is no 29. They played it over and over and no one can figure out what the hell the refs are talking about. If this turns out to be a complete fabrication from all camera angles the ref should have to explain himself. You can't just make stuff up because you feel like it.

I don't care about the Bears but this made me mad. Could happen to anyone.

I don't actually have much respect for the officials in general. They baby Manning and Brady and let Big Ben take all the cheap hits. They turn a blind eye to James Harrison being held on nearly every play. The NFL picks and chooses who they are going to enforce the rules for and against based on personal whim. And in the last few seasons it's become even more obvious.
