The Buffalo Bills might agree with Von Miller’s reaction to Sunday’s gut-wrenching, crazy 33-30 loss to the Minnesota Vikings if they make it to the Super Bowl. That was the Bills second costly late turnover. With less than a minute remaining, a fumble at their own goal line gave the Vikings energy and the lead when it appeared all hope was lost for Minnesota. At halftime, the Bills led 24-10, and they led 27-10 late in the third quarter. The Vikings advanced to the goal line and showed up to score on a short pass to Jefferson, but he was ruled down at the one-yard line. Kirk Cousins tried to sneak over the goal line but was stopped, successfully ending the game.
But that was only the start. A fumble was caused by a bad center-quarterback exchange as the Bills tried to run out the clock. Minnesota took a 30-27 lead after Eric Kendricks recovered in the end zone for a touchdown. After that things went downhill. Miller attempted to look on the bright side of the loss, saying his 12 years of experience and the struggles of his Rams team last season.”If anything,” Miller said, “I like the position we’re in.” “You want to be tested as December and later months approach.”That is what the Bills witnessed, in all its glory and defeat, as the nation watched the greatest game of the regular season send the Super Bowl favorite nosediving all the way from the AFC’s top seed to third place in the AFC East, behind the Miami Dolphins and New York Jets. The Bills fall to 6-3 with the loss and are now in third place in the AFC East. The Vikings now have an 8-1 record, fans have high hopes this year for the team. SKOL Vikings!
