After their second straight blowout loss to a division opponent, the Buffalo Bills are still a long way from competing in the AFC East. Sunday's thrashing at the hands of the New England Patriots exemplified several glaring reasons why this is true.
Even before Buffalo coughed up a 21-7 third quarter lead, you had to think C.J. Spiller's fumble at the 1-yard line just before halftime would come back to haunt the Bills. But with the way the Pats scored in the final 30 minutes, it didn't matter either way.
New England is now 17-1 against Buffalo in their last 18 meetings. According to FoxSports.com, in his 21 career starts versus Buffalo, Tom Brady is 19-2 with 49 TDs.
