The Bills didn't score any points in the second half of Sunday's game against the Vikings, but it's hard to imagine anyone in Buffalo getting too upset about that development.
Josh Allen's awe-inspiring arm strength was the most obvious trait that drew the Buffalo Bills to the polarizing prospect from Wyoming. They are the 15th underdog of 17 or more points to win a game in the Super Bowl era, and the largest underdog to pull off an upset since the Washington Redskins knocked off the Dallas Cowboys 24-17 as 17.5-point underdogs on December 3, 1995. There have only been 13 teams to win as a two-touchdown underdog since 1995.
The Vikings (1-1-1) allowed the Bills (1-2) to become only the sixth 16-plus-point underdog victor in the NFL's last 81 point spreads of that size. The 17.5-point underdogs defeated Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith and Michael Irvin at the height of the Cowboys dynasty by a touchdown in Texas Stadium. Through the first three weeks of the season, Minnesota has given up 18 explosive plays, which has them tied with four other teams for the ninth-most in the National Football League, according to ESPN Stats & Information.
Buffalo's 21-point win over Minnesota is also the second-largest victory by a double-digit dog since 2003.
Tiger Woods caps comeback with Tour Championship victory
Rose, on the other hand, won the FedEx Cup and a $US10 million ($13.7 million) payday, with Woods finishing in second spot. It would be his 80th title on the PGA Tour and hold a special place as his first trophy after four back surgeries.
The Vikings don't have much time to recover from Sunday's debacle. The Saints lost this game by 3 points, not by 21. "He's having a personal matter and I'm going to leave it at that", Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said.
The seventh overall pick in the draft out of Wyoming who took the job earlier than expected in relief of a struggling Nathan Peterman in the opener, completed 15 of 22 passes for 196 yards.
McCoy had been limited in practice all week after he sustained cracked ribs in last week's loss to the Chargers. It's nothing new to us. We could say the Linval Joseph roughing the passer call on the first drive set the tone for the day.
"If we want to get to where we want to be at the end of this, this might be a good thing. We need to communicate better and do better on defense".
