Buffalo Bills Can’t Snap Losing Streak

The Buffalo Bills collapse is complete.

Actually, the Bills had already been eliminated from the postseason heading into Sunday’s game against Miami. The Dolphins earned their second win of the year over the Bills, 30-23, and in the process knocked Buffalo into last place in the AFC East.

It wasn’t that long ago that the Bills were in first place of the division and looking to end the longest active playoff drought.

Following an Adrian Peterson like game from Reggie Bush (okay, it was more like the Bills defense playing poorly) the Buffalo has gone from first to worst and now lost seven straight games.

Bush finished with a career-high 203 yards and the Dolphins gave interim coach Todd Bowles his first win, just days after the team fired Tony Sparano.

The Bills got a nice game from C.J. Spiller (167 total yards – 2 touchdowns), but Ryan Fitzpatrick threw three interceptions and the offense sputtered for most of the game.

Fitzpatrick, who signed a $59 million extension in the middle of the season, has 12

interceptions and only eight touchdown passes during the losing streak.

When Fitzpatrick was efficient, the Bills still seemed to mess things up. At the end of the first half, Dave Rayner missed a 26-yard field goal that would have cut the deficit to 13-10.

Buffalo managed to score 16 of the game’s final 23 points, but that only made the eventual letdown of falling short feel even worse.

The Bills could potentially finish the season with nine straight losses, after losing their first eight games of 2010.

With games left against Denver and New England, it looks like Buffalo will finish in last place in the AFC East for the fourth straight year.
