The Buffalo Bills are 3-0. They've set a franchise record for most points scored in the first three games of a season (113), beaten two 2010 division winners, and are coming off of a highly cathartic 34-31 win over the New England Patriots, to whom they'd lost 15 straight games. More challenges await, but football things have not been this lovely in Western New York for well over a decade.
Buffalo's next opponent is the Cincinnati Bengals, who will host the Bills at Paul Brown Stadium this coming Sunday, October 2. Having just ended a 15-game losing streak against New England, it's ironic that the Bills will now put a 10-game winning streak against the Bengals on the line. The Bengals haven't beaten Buffalo since November 27, 1988. Chan Gailey and the Bills will be taking things one game at a time, but fans don't have to (though some, like me, do).
If you're into advance scouting for future Bills opponents, tonight's Monday Night Football matchup is one you'll want to pay attention to. Tonight, the Dallas Cowboys will play host to the Washington Redskins; Dallas has one of the most dangerous offenses in the NFL, as well as the game's best pass rusher (DeMarcus Ware), while the Redskins are off to an interesting 2-0 start behind Mike Shanahan and Rex Grossman.
The Bills will host the Redskins in Toronto on October 30, then travel to take on the Cowboys on November 13. Leave any thoughts you may have about the Bills, Redskins or Cowboys right here, and enjoy the game!
