Revenge will be served in seconds and thirds at the Ryan household this Thanksgiving after the Buffalo Bills and head coach Rex Ryan ended the New England Patriot’s perfect season on the road in Foxborough on Monday Night Football with a 20-13 win.
“I can’t wait to go home, get a foot massage from my wife, and drink a bottle of Bill’s tears after a win like this,” said Ryan.
Cries of mercy from Patriots quarterback Tom Brady were not heard no matter how many times he screamed Rex Ryan’s name. The Bills defense, led by defensive end Jerry Hughes, and their 14 sacks Monday night did not care to hear them.
Tyrod Taylor made the Patriots defense look like a rotting corpse already drained of its blood after putting up another superb stat line that will go down in infamy as one of the best ever for a QB taken in the sixth round of an NFL Draft; right next to the all-pro Dan LeFevour and Seattle Seahawks all-time great Mike Teel.
“I mean, what do you expect from a quarterback out of Virginia Tech,” said Taylor. “I might never have as great of a season as Vick did in ’07 or ’08 but a man can try, can’t he?”
Marshawn Lynch proved to be as reliable as ever for the Bills with two goal-line runs up the middle from the 1-yard-line on the night.
After the game, Lynch was very open about his performance to reporters, stating “I can’t help but thank my offensive line for those two touchdowns tonight. Animal Mode can only go so far and without guys like Richie, I’d be bullied by the defensive line near the goal.”
Next up for the Bills is a test on the road from former Patriots quarterback Matt Cassel and his Kansas City Chiefs. New England will have a tough time bouncing back from this loss as they go on the road to face possible MVP candidate Brock Osweiler and his Denver Broncos.
