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 went into Friday night’s preseason game against the Carolina Panthers with one distinct advantage: while the contest was the first game action of the year for the Panthers, the Bills had already strapped on the pads Sunday night for the Hall of Fame Game against the New York Giants. The Bills parlayed that advantage into a 20-18 victory.

The team can some pride in its win, but it shouldn’t take any time to celebrate. Preseason victories, though better than losses, are essentially meaningless. There are still many things the Bills need to be doing better to consistently win games in the regular season. However, there were some promising areas of progress in Friday’s game, especially in the play of quarterback EJ Manuel and the Bills offense.
