They beat Aaron Rodgers and a good Green Pay Packers team by 10 points. At no point of time were the Bills not in control of this contest. Green Bay was running the ball and playing the game as if they were up by a score.
“They say misery loves company. We could start a company and make misery. Frustrated Incorporated… Frustrated Incorporated. Put me out of my misery.” – Soul Asylum
