    And you thought the Thursday Night Football game against the New York Jets was bad. That was a keeper compared to the Buffalo Bills' performance against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday at New Era...

    We’re a few days removed from that hideous Buffalo Bills loss to the New York Jets, but many Bills fans are still dealing with the hangover. I put up a Twitter poll the day after the Bills smoked...
