Buffalo Bills Never Show Up, Lose Big to Cowboys

Where do I start?

The Bills are looking more and more like the 2008 team that started the season 5-1 and finished 7-9.

As a fan, it’s incredibly disheartening to see a game like Sunday’s — one they were never in, in a 44-7 loss to Dallas.

At 5-4, Buffalo must win next week, at the suddenly surging Dolphins, to keep from heading into the Meadowlands, the weekend after Thanksgiving, at .500, following a 3-0 start.

The Bills came off of a terrible performance against the Jets and were out of the game against the Cowboys before it really even started.

Buffalo made Tony Romo look like Joe Montana, as Romo picked his spots and completed his first 10 passes, leading to Dallas’ first two touchdowns.

Romo, who has been up and down all season, had just three incomplete passes (23-26) and threw for 270 yards and three touchdowns.

If you’re a Bills fans, you can’t help but think back to 2008, when Buffalo started 4-0 and was 5-5 after 10 weeks.

That season, Trent Edwards looked like he could be a capable quarterback, leading an explosive offense to high-scoring victories in each of the first four weeks. In Week 5, he was hit hard and suffered a concussion against the Cardinals and the season was over.

This year, Ryan Fitzpatrick looked like a capable quarterback. In fact, through the first few weeks, there weren’t many quarterbacks who had better numbers than him.

Following a three-interception game on Sunday, I’m not sure Fitzpatrick deserved that long $59 million contract extension the team rewarded him with, a few weeks ago.

10 games.

The schedule is still a little bit favorable with two games against Miami, one against Denver and struggling San Diego.

The way Buffalo played on Sunday, though, it’s not how many games they will win or where they will figure into the playoff discussion, but if they will win any more games this year.

Chan Gailey had better turn things around and turn them around quickly.
