Three weeks ago the Buffalo Bills were 5-2, and their two losses were by a field goal apiece, both against teams with winning records. A whole lot has changed since then.
Today the Bills were blown out by the Dolphins, for their third straight lopsided loss. They’re now 5-5, and they’ve been outscored by 80 points over their last three games.
Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, who picked up a hefty new contract just before the team went into a tailspin, says he hasn’t a clue what’s going on.
“We’re baffled as to what has happened,” Fitzpatrick said, via the Associated Press. “For the past three weeks, it has not been fun to play, and I’m sure it has not been fun to watch.”
Bills coach Chan Gailey says he can’t believe that his team — which three weeks ago looked like one of the best teams in the league — lost 35-8 to Miami — which three weeks ago looked like one of the worst teams in the league.
“I don’t know if I’ve ever been through that before, ever,” Gailey said. “When you’re that bad, you’re having a pitiful day.”
The Bills have had three pitiful Sundays in a row.
