Well that was an...absurdly ugly day on offense for the Patriots. The Bills defense is definitely good, props to them, but Brady and his receivers looked out of sync all day long. I'd assume Buffalo was doing a good job of knocking them off the line on timing routes, because there were a few passes that were just really arrant throws towards nothing in particular (happened at least once on what was a bad grounding call, imo). I'm not sure how injured Edelman still is, Brady barely threw to him. Offensive line wasn't much better and let the Bills get pressure on Brady with 4 man rushes all day long.
Thankfully the Bills' offense was even worse. Five turnovers (4 INTs), and maybe should've been more with two fumbles that they recovered. Defense played well, no doubt, but I don't think they're going to be able to carry us through many more games where our offense totally shits the bed. Bills outgained us nearly 2:1 with Josh Allen and fucking Matt Barkley at QB, and that was with five turnovers. Presumably not many teams are going to be doing that.
We're really going to need to start thinking about a new kicker after this season. Gost has been flat out bad. He's missed a kick every game this year, and leads the league with *FOUR* missed extra points.
Refs were also...really bad. Several obvious blatant penalties that weren't called (mostly facemasks), for both teams. Really hoping we don't see that crew again.
At the end of the day, though, I guess I can't complain too much. A win is a win, and we've definitely looked much worse at this point in the year and ultimately been fine.
