Bills Lose Ugly
After some very close games against good teams, the Bills looked every bit the part of a 2 & 10 team in a 38 to 7 loss to the Vikings. A promising start when Drayton Florence returned an interception for a touchdown to give the Bills a 7-nothing lead, but it was all downhill from there. The Vikings then scored 38 straight points including 31 in the first half and it all got started with Leodis McKelvin losing a battle for what should have been an interception. Touchdown Vikings. McKelvin then fumbled the kickoff – result? Touchdown Vikings. The Bills managed only 42 yards in offense in the first half. Five turnovers for the game. Ugh. The Bills came up with four takeaways of their own but the difference in this one was the Vikings were able to make the most of their takeaways while the Bills did not, except for that opening touchdown by Florence.
It got so bad I went to the kitchen to help Shelley with dinner by cutting up a butternut squash. At least something good came out of the game.
Ryan Fitzpatrick managed to extend his streak of touchdown passes to 13 straight games – the longest for the Bills since the days of Jim Kelly.
