Bills Drop to Earth

I slugged through an 8-5 day on the gridiron, but at least I was right about the Bills losing in a game in which they failed to score an offensive TD. Drew Bledsoe was having flashbacks to his games in Miami as a Patriot. The Bills defense is stronger than I initially gave them credit for, though, and as I said, the AFC East will be close all year.

The Patriots have managed to get to 2-1 despite tons of injuries--Ted Washington broke a leg today, hurting the already thin defense, especially aaginst the run. I don't see the Pats competing all the way given the holes they have, which leaves Miami and Buffalo to fight for the division. If the Dolphins can keep the incredible Ricky Williams healthy and avoid the annual December collapse, they will win, but those are big ifs.
