“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of light, it was the season of darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair.” ― Charles Dickens
When the Buffalo Bills journeyed to the Garden State last month, they were in first place in the entire AFC conference. They met the Jets. They played the game. The Bills lost. They found themselves in third place in the AFC EAST.

“What’s that? Ah, playoffs? Don’t talk about playoffs? You kidding me? Playoffs? I just hope we can win a game.” – Jim Mora
Maybe Bill Belichick can have a public Jim Mora moment for our entertainment?
“Well, what happened was, that second game, we got our ass kicked. In the second half, we just got our ass totally kicked. We couldn’t do diddly poo offensively, we couldn’t make a first down; we couldn’t run the ball, we didn’t try to run the ball, we couldn’t complete a pass – we sucked. The second half, we sucked. We couldn’t stop the run. Every time they got the ball, they went down and got points. We got our ass totally kicked in the second half – that’s what it boiled down to. It was a horseshit performance in the second half. Horseshit. I’m totally embarrassed and totally ashamed. Coaching did a horrible job. The players did a horrible job. We got our ass kicked in that second half. It sucked. It stunk.” – Jim Mora
Does Josh Allen’s safety net Dawson Knox, who dropped his only target against the PATS, get a verbal or written warning? How about Devin Singletary, bobbled both passes thrown his way?

“You know something? You’re not even supposed to be here today!” – Randal Graves
Well, if we are distributing plaques, look no further than James Cook. The rookie ran the ball for 64 yards and caught six balls for 41 yards. Nice game kid!
