Had to happen after my brag didn't it FFS

Can we go 3 for 3 championship final though? Last year I won was a bit anti climax due to your game being called off

Yep, you definitely jinxed them. Although I've fucked up now because if we do meet in the final again they're going to put 20+ points on me because I laughed at your post yesterday. :ffs:

Think that one is a new low. Restricted a team to ten points or less three games running and still due to offensive ineptitude lose and never look like doing anything else. Can’t pin this one on Mac, Zappe made his performances this season look like prime Brady. They’ve got us and a likely Mitch Trubisky led Pittsburgh O on Thursday night. What the fuck were they thinking :lol:

On to cheering for the Cards now in this slate. Seal that second spot in the draft.

Punt, fumble, punt, punt, punt, punt, end of half. Punt, punt, turnover on downs, turnover on downs.

Mate I'm feeling sorry for you now. Not for the Pats. I mean for you, coz you're a good guy and you don't deserve this.

Appreciate it mate. Rough with the smooth and all that. I will admit I somewhat feel empathy with Jets fans and what they’ve had over the years now.

All about Arizona Cardinals for me now, hopefully with play resumed they can seal the win in Pittsburgh. In terms of good football should be a great one with the Eagles and Niners on now.

For sure yes. Been busy this evening/night but am sitting down to watch second half of this now and I'm sure it's gonna be good one way or another whatever happens.

Really close win today won but there was some issues especially with pass protection the amount of time Allen wriggled out getting sacked was insane but this does feel like we are already in Playoff mode in that we can't lose and with some difficult games ahead don't think winning the Afc East is out of reach either as Dolphins have some difficult games with Ravens and Cowboys being the most obvious ones.

Kept it close first half but then second half Zappe reverted to type and in the end an easy win for KC. Feels weird seeing the dying embers of the BB regime. My guess he goes to the LA Chargers. Herbert could use the kind of defense BB can put together.

Best news today is the Panthers beating Atlanta. The #1 pick in the draft might just be in play for us.

Absolutely dominating the Cowboys don't even need to pass against the Cowboys D this without doubt the best Bills rushing performance for a very long time does make the last 3 game stretch very interesting given how tough the Dolphins run in is.

Brilliant performance from Buffalo. Looking ahead to the playoffs getting that run game going will make Josh Allen even more dangerous through the air.

I’m watching some of the worst clock management I’ve ever seen from Rivera and the Commanders trying to chase this game. If people’s jobs weren’t on the line you’d think it was tanking rather than sheer ineptitude that it really is. This will be another vacancy this off season alongside the Chargers, Panthers, Raiders and probably the Pats and Jets too.

Having a rushing game is exciting as it should open up a lot for the passing game plus running the football tends to be very important during the playoffs especially when conditions are less than ideal.

It's going to be interesting see where the jobs open up as I get the feeling Belichick will want to continue coaching and the Chargers to me would be the most enticing job currently available.

We made the Chargers game a lot more difficult than it should be especially with several sloppy turnovers but getting the win is the most important thing and we are now in control of our playoff destiny Dolphins later should be interesting as they will be under major pressure to get a win against a team with a winning record.

Stayed up to watch our game last night for some reason. We are infuriating! A week after battering the good Cowboys you knew we'd play down to a bad opponent and struggle against the rudderless Chargers. Thought we were gonna lose at the end and the season was about to be realistically over.

Bengals losing was good though. And looking like Texans will now too. Colts also behind. Need the Dolphins to lose in what should be a good game later and also Jags if that's not asking too much for too.

fair enough Mark looks like you're making the final and I won't be but that Howell pick-up and subsequent performance did make me laugh

It's Bills football we play down to the opponent the biggest issue for me last night was the fumbles on the Chargers I am not surprised they made it close new coach and player are motivated to play for there jobs

That Chargers team is better than people think. It was a Brandon Staley problem they had more than anything.

Watching Redzone ahead of hopefully tank commander Zappe leading us one step closer to Caleb or Maye I’m starting to think that Trevor Lawrence for all the pre-draft hype is not that good. He’s a turnover machine. Hoping for an Arizona comeback in Chicago after the Commanders blew their one against the Jets.

True yes, also if the new regime is gonna have a clear out the players want to be putting some effort in now and look good so they'll stand more chance getting picked up elsewhere too.

Aye he's definitely not as good as advertised, i.e. the sure-fire generational talent pick he was meant to be. But he's not awful. Never gonna be top 5 but also not bottom 10. Just somewhere in the middle, like current day Baker, Geno or Russ are perhaps.

Yeah I’d say that’s a good way of putting it. Not quite lived up to the billing of being the second coming of Peyton Manning more Eli Manning or Tony Romo. Can work with him but seems every game there’s a daft turnover in there.

Big statement win that for the Fins. Still there for the Bills to win the division though, away in Baltimore for the Fins is a horrible matchup. Once again Dallas lose a big one on the road. For that reason I can’t see past the Niners in the NFC but I’ve said that the last few years.

I think all the results went the right way for the Bills this weekend except Miami winning. So I can't really complain about or expect much more than what happened. And as you say it's still there for Buffalo, win the remaining two and Miami lose their two and I think (I saw it mentioned on Reddit) we can actually get second seed now too after KC lost to the Raiders. That would be unbelievable after the mid-season lull we had. Tbh if we got the division just that would kinda feel like we stole it after the Dolphins being up there most of the season.

Aye I can see how it would but if you look at Miami this season outside of their excellent win over Dallas they’ve spent most of it beating up on tomato cans like ourselves and the Jets and not many quality wins unlike yourselves. Always better to peak late on in any case. When we were good at times it felt we only really started playing after Thanksgiving and it worked for 20 years. I think what we’ve seen is just how much Dorsey was holding back the Bills offensively. Looks a completely different proposition now.

Bailey Crappe.

That opening kickoff Pats TD would have been a decent £1 tbf after we did the same thing last year and it was such a storied thing straight after the Hamlin game.

Saddest thing is the Defense has done a great job nullifying Allen through the air so far. Only so long can hold out before it creeks though. Zappe is horrible and I’m glad there’s a game like this showing this as I was worried they’d be tempted into going with him next season.

Only watching on Redzone but have never seen a Diggs running play before and that maybe speaks to Allen not having much joy through the air!

I dunno man maybe you want to lose this game anyway and next week too. Get the best pick possible to draft a QB. Best thing long-term eh?

Yeah both teams defensively are cooking. The Pats done some really nice coverages on the Bills receivers and on your side Ed Oliver is such a beast. He’s crushing our interior.

Most definitely. Put it this way I don’t as a matter of course like losing divisional games but this one and the Jets next week I’m more forgiving of.

Pats defence has been impressive upto yet given the three turnovers but we really need to get the passing game going but I do wonder what the Pats record would be with a semi functioning offense.

Have to admit I can’t wait until we get Gonzalez back in that secondary next season. Judon off the edge too and it is pretty exciting. I think I’ve said it before it’s just the culmination of BB having a blind spot to offensive football.

And I think that’s the worst from Zappe yet. If Mac had thrown that….

Lamar Jackson is absolutely killing me in fantasy football. On the plus side he’s leading us to the number 1 seed in the AFC. At the moment…

Main takeaway (no pun intended) from this half is this game is drunk. Turned it over four times but only down by six. Our offense in so far as it can be called that is a disgrace. Maybe it’s just we’ve done so well defensively but more I see I think Buffalo has a growing Josh Allen problem; he doesn’t look right.

Have just seen the highlights of Lamar’s first half. Yeah he is MVP lapping the field for me.
