The Buffalo Bills defense put up one of their best performances of the season in prime time on Monday Night Football against the New England Patriots. They held Tom Brady and the Patriots’ offense to just 18 points. The Bills’ offense, on the other hand, only scored six points and handed the Patriots seven points in the form of a Devin McCourty 84-yard pick-six. Their six points came on two Stephen Hauschka field goals, making it back-to-back games where the offense has not scored a touchdown.

Since Derek Anderson has taken over starting quarterback duties for the Bills, the offense has yet to find the end zone. In that span, the other 31 teams in the league have scored 148 touchdowns. I’m stating the obvious here, but the Bills could’ve used a touchdown or two Monday night. The Brady-era Patriots have never lost a game where their opponent failed to score a touchdown.
