The Buffalo Bills ended some long, unwanted droughts at Gillette Stadium on Sunday. With a 17-9 win over the New England Patriots, the Bills secured their first winning season since 2004, finishing the year at 9-7, while they also won for the first time on the road in Foxborough, Mass. since 2000, despite playing one game against the Patriots there every year since.

Even so, the Bills and their fans won’t be telling their kids about the time they beat the Patriots in New England in 2014. The outcome of Sunday’s game had no impact on the streak the Bills really wanted to end in 2014—Buffalo’s season is over prior to the playoffs again for a 15th consecutive year—and it came on a day that the Patriots played like they had nothing to play for, having already clinched the No. 1 seed in the AFC before Week 17 even began.

The Buffalo Bills are right in the thick of the AFC playoff race, currently sitting in a four-way tie for sixth place with a record of 5-3. The defense has really carried the team while the offense has been opportunistic enough to contribute to the winning record.

Overall through eight games, many defensive players have graded out very well while the offensive players have been more boom or bust in terms of individual performances.

For the first 57 minutes of Sunday’s game against the Minnesota Vikings, it looked as though this column would be all about everything that went wrong for the Buffalo Bills offense on Sunday.

The Bills flipped the script in the game’s final three minutes and seven seconds, as quarterback Kyle Orton led a 15-play, 80-yard touchdown drive, which ended with just one second remaining in the game, to give Buffalo a 17-16 victory in a game that was otherwise ugly for both teams.

Shaky Start for the Offense: Buffalo Bills Training Camp Observations, July 22

Tuesday’s training camp practice for the Buffalo Bills looked eerily similar to Monday’s practice, the only difference being the addition of pads. Some nice plays were made by a handful of players but on the whole, the Bills offense looked horribly out of sync.

While still very early in the whole training camp process, there were a few things I noticed over my two days at St. John Fisher College that should give Bills fans pause for concern. With U2′s classic song “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For” as our theme this time, here are my observations from Tuesday’s practice.
