    There's two good EDGE at the top of the draft and either one will be worth it.

    The Broncos just had a 20-play, 14 minute drive, and scored 0 points.

    :lol:

    I told you they wouldn't be. I guess Dalton isn't the savior, matching Taysom Hill in INT's.

    That was pure sorcery. The Bills had 9 in the box the whole second half and couldn't do anything to stop the run.

    It would seem that Belichick has acquired himself a fresh new demonic contract. :devil: :evil:

    Sometimes 10.

    Think about how well that will open up the playaction passing game next time they meet.

    Mac Jones stat line from last night: 2/3, 19 yards.

    I sure hope @Aragorn didn't listen to me...

    I decided to pick up the overpaid, overrated hybrid QB from New Orleans, because no matter how bad he sucks in the real game, he still provides a lot of fantasy value in total yards.

    Hill's 4 INT's were more on his own ineptitude than Dalton's 4 INT's :guffaw:

    It was pretty amazing from a historical perspective. I think the talking heads said it was the least amount of pass attempts in a game since 1974. Credit the Patriots coaching staff for giving zero fuks about what any analyst or fan would think, and going with the plan they felt gave them the best chance to win the game in those conditions. Takes courage to stick to that game plan.

    Overall, it really is a credit to how good the offensive line is for the Patriots as well (not to mention the WR's who did a ton of blocking and the RB's obviously).

    It sets the Patriots up with a really interesting advantage for the next time they play the Bills. The playaction passing game has been excellent with Mac Jones this season, and with how much Buffalo will be geared-up to stop the run and avoid another embarrassment, playaction should be a deadly weapon.

    Interesting stuff, for sure.

    I think a lot of the credit should go to that Patriot defense. Keeping Josh Allen in check allowed the Patriots to run the ball all night. Without a run game, the Bills will be roadkill come playoff time.

    I do wonder if Buffalo is having some buyer's remorse locking Allen in for $43 million a year?

    Good point, defense often gets overlooked in football discussions. They played lights out last night.

    They can always trade him to Detroit for Goff.
