Sean McDermott and the Buffalo Bills are now two games behind the New England Patriots in the win column following their ugly loss to said Pats on Monday night.
It’s hard to gauge where a team stands following a game of this ilk. After all, gusts of winds at Highmark Stadium in Western New York reached north of 60 miles-per-hour. In a setting of this magnitude, talent tends to even out with the better team being impacted the most.
So, we’re not going to blame the Bills too much for falling by the score of 14-10 in a game that Patriots quarterback Mac Jones attempted a mere three passes.
It’s what we heard from the Buffalo Bills after the game that has to be seen as concerning.
“Let’s not give more credit than we need to give credit to Bill Belichick in this one. Whether it was Bill or anybody else, they beat us, right? But you sit here and you tell me when we start with an average starting field position of the 40-yard line and he starts with the 23-yard line—I’m rounding up in both cases—and we were 1-for-4 in the red zone and they were 0-for-1 in the red zone? You give me that ahead of time, I’d say I like my chances. I like my chances,” Bills head coach Sean McDermott told reporters.
Let’s not give credit to a head coach who has won six Super Bowl titles since the last time the Bills even sniffed the big game?
