Patriots Loss
Worst 5 Losses in Bills History - - Mike Catalana
3. Foxboro Fumble (Patriots). I apologize if this is too high because it just happened. But it is hard not to overstate how much the Bills franchise needed this win. 11 straight losses to the hated Patriots, and they start the season as monumental underdogs in Foxboro. Not only do the Bills prove they can play with the Pats, they outplay them. Up 11 after just shoving the ball down the Patriots throat for a 4th quarter touchdown, it all fell apart. This could have been a franchise altering win. When there are tears in the locker room, you know it was a tough one to take. Leodis, my man, what were you thinking?

Marshawn Lynch could be very potent upon his return - Evans/Owens gives a lot of room for RB receptions in the flat, and Edwards is conserv.

Twitter / Rochester D&C Writer Sal Maiorana
Bills are thin at LB to begin with, and Dick Jauron said right now plan isn't to go out and find someone. Marcus Buggs is going to start

If Trent Edwards doesn't test TBs poor safety coverage combo deep w/ Evans/Owens, then defenses really can stop defending the deep third.
