You say that, but the Bills lost a winnable game against the Ghost of Roethlisberger.I definitely take a lot of positives away from this one, but, DAMN, they should have won that game. They can't lose winnable games like that with the Bills being as good as the are.
Not saying we should rely on our divisional opponents to shit the bed against inferior competition, just saying it happens. The turnovers and penalties were killer, and I know Bill will have tons to say to the team about them. 1 fewer turnover or 2 fewer 15 yard penalties would have been enough to swing that game. I trust the Patriots to have improved more than the Phins have by Week 18 and hope we can pay them back for a season opener loss in our home stadium with a season finale loss in theirs, ideally bouncing them from the playoffs at the same time.
Still it's a painful loss of course, lots of could've would've should've in this one.
As a note, Mac Jones had a higher passer rating than "all pro" and "future MVP" Dak Prescott, and had a more complete body of work in my estimation as well. Considering both of them lost the game, I fully expect the media to talk as glowingly about Mac Jones performance as they did Dak's
