5 reasons why the Bills pulled off the upset in Minnesota

  • Bills Film Room What Josh Allen can expect from Vikings’ sneaky pressure packages

Thankfully for them, the Vikings didn't do anything about it either. That's one behind Seattle's Russell Wilson for the most in the National Football League over that span. Cousins has lost 13 of those fumbles, including the pair in the first quarter on sacks by Jerry Hughes and Trent Murphy.

It didn't get any better from there.

Going into Week 3's matchup between the Vikings and Buffalo Bills, it seemed foolish to not have picked Minnesota to come out on top.

"I have not lost faith in this football team, but it just shows you every week is a new week", Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said. "There's not any excuse for it". I was ready to roast Sean McDermott for making us believe he was the real deal. It was one of those games and it happened.

For all we know, Allen could walk into Lambeau Field next week and have one of the worst quarterbacking performances of all time.

Which makes one wonder which is worse for a team with title aspirations: Overlooking an inferior opponent or getting manhandled by an inferior opponent?

Saturday, the Bills sent out a tweet mistaking Minnesota for Wisconsin. He put it more succinctly.

I buried them last week and was sure this article would be about how disgusted I was with the franchise.

Then we got video confirmation of Bills cornerback Tre White, who logged four tackles and a pass deflection on a day that Cousins logged three turnovers and didn't lead a scoring drive until the game was long out of hand late in the fourth quarter.

"Any time you turn the ball over it's going to hurt you", Thielen said.

Leading the Chiefs to the end zone on each of his five first-half possessions, Mahomes notched his 13th touchdown pass of 2018, breaking Peyton Manning's mark for most passing scores in the first three games of a season.

Allen completed 15 of his 22 passes for 196 yards, but it was on the ground where he did most of the damage as the previously winless Bills pulled off a shock result in Minneapolis. On one of his escapes from the pocket, Allen hurdled would-be tackler Anthony Barr.

"We did all the things that cause you to lose football games", Zimmer said. He threw for 44 yards in the first half and lost two fumbles on strip-sacks.

The Vikings are heavy favorites in this game, despite Dalvin Cook (hamstring) and Everson Griffen (knee) likely out.

Adrian Peterson rushed for two touchdowns as the Washington Redskins beat the Green Bay Packers 31-17, while Super Bowl champions the Philadelphia Eagles edged past the Indianapolis Colts 20-16.

If special teams were under fire after a blocked punt and Daniel Carlson's three missed field goals at Green Bay, the unit was set ablaze against the Bills.

In a twist of irony, the Vikings cut Carlson after that game and added former Cowboys kicker Dan Bailey.
