Cowboys 44, Bills 7: Wait, Buffalo Really Had Playoff Aspirations?

The Dallas Cowboys absolutely obliterated the Buffalo Bills today, winning by a final score of 44-7. At no point during the 60-minute contest were the Bills even remotely competitive.

The defense stunk; they gave up 434 yards, including 317 in the first half alone. Tony Romo looked like a legend (23-of-26, 270 yards, 3 TD, 0 INT, 148.4 rating). DeMarco Murray ran unencumbered (20 carries, 135 yards, 1 TD). The Bills did nothing to disrupt the Cowboys' rhythm all day.

The offense stunk, too. Ryan Fitzpatrick (20-of-31, 146 yards, 1 TD, 3 INT, 46.6 rating) was hit early and often. His receivers dropped passes, and for a second straight week, a Ryan brother and Chan Gailey combined to take Fred Jackson (13 carries, 114 yards; 4 receptions, 1 yard) out of the game completely.

The Bills team that has been blown out 71-18 in the last two weeks isn't close to being a playoff contender, and they're not any fun at all to watch on Sundays. Gailey told his players to prepare for this game as if it were the game that would earn them a playoff berth. Clearly, the 5-4 Bills don't know or have what it takes to get there.
