Buffalo Bills vs. New England Patriots GameThread - First Half

Buffalo Bills (2-0) vs. New England Patriots (2-0)
Sunday, September 25, 2011 at 1:00 PM ET
Ralph Wilson Stadium, Orchard Park, NY

Bills inactives: TE Lee Smith, OT Sam Young, OG Kraig Urbik (knee), NT Torell Troup, ILB Kirk Morrison (hamstring), CB Terrence McGee (hamstring), CB Justin RogersThey say that each week in the NFL is a test. To win, then, would be akin to passing said test. The Buffalo Bills have not passed the New England Patriots test since September 7, 2003. Speaking personally: I was a 17-year-old senior in high school. When I say that the Bills haven't beaten the Patriots in the last third of my lifetime, I am speaking literally.

New England has won this matchup 15 straight times, regardless of location. To their credit, the Bills - under the guidance of Chan Gailey - truly believe that they can win this game after their hot 2-0 start. As well they should; they are capable of beating this banged-up Pats team. Saying it's easy; getting it done is another matter entirely.

Nonetheless, we're here to cheer. Let's see if the Bills can't end this miserable streak this afternoon. GO BILLS!
