Bills Slaughtered (Again!); Lose 41-9 to Bears
Another blowout, had zero chance, OMG! is it over yet?, please someone throw the towel in! loss for the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.
Their most recent trouncing came at home at the hands of the Chicago Bears, 41-9.
After a scoreless opening period, 'Da Bears put 28 points on the board in the second, helped by a pair of Buffalo turnovers that were returned for touchdowns. And it happened quick!
The Bears were up 7-0 and the Bills were in Chicago territory. Jason Croome fumbled after making a catch and it was returned 64-yards for a score, 14-0. Two plays later, Nathan Peterman pick-6 (one of three INTs on the day), and it's 21-0 - game over.
For the game, Chicago was able to score 41 while running just 46 offensive plays. The Bills ran over 80 plays and scored nine points, the bulk of which came on a garbage time, fourth quarter touchdown.
Buffalo has been without rookie QB Josh Allen for the last three weeks and without him an offense that was meager to begin with has gotten less productive. Relying on Derick Anderson and this week Peterman to fill-in under center, opponents have outscored the Bills 103-20 (35-7, 25-6, 41-9) in those three games. But, even with Allen playing, the team only posted 76 total points in its first six games.
The Bills (2-7) play at the Jets (3-6) next Sunday.
