rust, opening night jitters, and one helluva defensive play made this game close.
Good point. Dude even ran with that robo-cop attachment on his knee. You could tell his swagger was growing with each reception. AMAZING

No. the Bills beat them up.
#94 almost picked Brady off twice!
Moss was covered all game.
#22 was running the ball like a beast!

That's the reason you have the stats you listed.


That idiot kick returner should have taken the knee!!!

Moss had 12 catches for 141 yards while being covered all game, Jackson had a "beastly" 57 yards rushing.

The reason those stats are listed is because, well how do I put this, those were the stats for the game.

Let me put it this way, if you show any reasonably intelligent fan a stat sheet showing team A with 165 more total yards, a 15 minute advantage in t.o.p., and 11 more first downs than team B, they'll probably say that team A was the better team who controlled the game and should've won, which is what happened last night. One single play doesn't win or lose a game.

Bevman is right. The Bills special teams coach should have told him to either run wide and get behind a blocker and either slowly get out of bounds OR flop down. Instead he went right into the wedge. The guys in that wedge knew what to do;
1. Stand the ball carrier up, and don't let him get his knee down.
2. Get another guy to rip that ball out of the carriers hands
3. Have another guy there to recover it.

That's what the guys on the wedge do! Otherwise the ball carrier flops, the Bills get a first down, game over.

The Bills played good enough to win. But it's the little things that make a difference. The Pats are a seasoned team. You can't make mistakes against them, 'cause they'll make you pay.

THe "chucking the QB to the ground" has NOTHING to do with the so called Brady rule. You're obviously a Patriot hater as opposed to someone with any common sense.

The Brady rule states a defender cannot lunge at a QB's knees if he is on the ground so neither Wilfork or AD had anything similar to that. In the case of throwing edwards down, he is not a passer because he possesed the football and was moving thus making him a "ball carrier" and therfore you can throw him down. Lick your wonds and go back to Buffalo, you guys should be used to choking now, you do it every year.

Last year vs the Jets
2 years ago another 25-24 loss to Dallas on MNF with a 9 point lead in the 4th.
Oh yeah and 4 straight SB losses.... you would think you learned to deal with sucking.
