The Buffalo Bills put an exclamation point on their first winning season since 2004 with a 17-9 victory over the New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass. in Week 17. The big win not only raised the Bills record to 9-7, but it snapped what had been a 15-game losing streak for Buffalo while playing on the road against New England.
A majority of the Patriots’ best players were on the sidelines by the second half of the game, which can be expected for a playoff team in the last week of the season. With that in mind, we look past the Bills’ season finale and back at the entire 2014 season for this week’s team grades.
As if you weren’t already aware, the defense was able to create havoc all year and really anchored this team, which led to excellent grades for many of its players. On the other side of the ball, the offense as a whole struggled most of the season, even though some players were able to finish up with good overall marks.
