I remember when the 1984 Bears suffered a painful loss in the NFC Championship game. They were coming on strong until then and everyone knew they would be an express freight train in 1985.

Probably too early to say it this year, but the 2022 Bills are pumping out a similar vibe. And there's not a whole lot of cupcake on their schedule. It ought to be fun to watch.

There are gamedays when you can't really tell how tricky the weather conditions are inside the Bills home stadium until you watch someone besides Josh Allen throw the football.

I want to join that Bills bandwagon, but plenty of teams have absolutely killed it in September only to be burnt out by the playoffs

Bills need to keep Allen healthy. Leaving him out on the field running naked bootlegs when they are already up 2 touchdowns with 3 minutes left in the game against monster defenders like Aaron Donald needs to be removed from the offensive strategy.

Bryson DeChambeau's eyeball had an unpleasant encounter with a gallery rope at the latest LIV exhibition.

Another angle.
