Dismal, grim, inept, nauseating ...you can use any adjective you want in describing the Buffalo Bills performance against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday at New Era Field. Entering the game only one game in the win column separated the two teams but on the field they were light years apart. The Steelers manhandled and embarrassed the Bills on their way to a 27-20 victory.
It was not a pretty season by far. But the Bills have some new fans in a city that already has a football team. You see, when the Buffalo Bills beat the NY Jets yesterday, they helped that other team make it to the playoffs.
After a season of good efforts, close calls and near misses, the Buffalo Bills put in a real stinker against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The defense was fair, special teams was bad and the offense was just awful.
Being a lifelong Buffalo Bills fan, I know all about what it feels like to be an underdog. And because I know that feeling so well, I always have a tendency to root for the underdog. In yesterday's Broncos/Steelers NFL Wildcard playoff game, it was Denver that was the clear underdog. Their record of 8 and 8 was just a wee bit better than our own Buffalo Bills.
