I had predicted a Broncos win in the Moderators Picks. Not only that, I had gone so far as to suggest that the Broncos would roll up enough rushing yards to threaten the single game record. (I'm not sure what that number is but I was bracing myself for a Tebow led onslaught north of 400 yards on the ground.) As I was in Seattle visiting a friend last week I had resigned myself to missing the game entirely.
Instead, the Bills defense held the league's #1 rushing attack to about 130 yards and I got to see the second half of the game at the Fox Sports bar (way to beautiful of a place to be any sort of sports bar--check it out if you're in Seattle; the food is both very good and very reasonable...plus they showed the Bills game along with every other game and seat people by the game they want to watch).
It seemed as though Dareus had a good game, Shep kept sticking his hat on the ball carrier and that Kelsay was an absolute beast. Was that how it happened? Is that all it took for the Bills to get a win? Is Denver so one dimensional that a 4-3 look was sufficient to shut them down?
(I don't want to talk about McKelvin being out of bounds or the ticky-tacky flag thrown on Royal's TD return; Buffalo was due some breaks after not getting them week in/week out.)
