Bills fans are very nervous, I work with a diehard Bills fan and while he will never admit it, you can tell how nervous he is. He constantly says how the Dolphins made a mistake taking Tua over Herbert and how "lucky" Tua has been the last few weeks. He also can't stand the media attention and love that Tua is getting. Before he even played a snap he said he was nothing more than another Pat White because of his size and would be injured right away.
They are nervous because they thought for a long time, even before the season that they had the AFC East title wrapped up. This was their year, the Patriots are taking a step back and the Bills were next in line. However they and everyone else didn't anticipate Miami playing so well and that big division lead the Bills had a few weeks ago is almost completely evaporated.
Here is the thing I will say, Buffalo is a darn good football team. They also are in year three of the Josh Allen rebuild and they worked hard to get in the position they are now to potentially take the division title away from the Patriots. Miami is in year one of the Tua rebuild, so the fact that Miami is already competing for a division title must bug the crap out of them. Miami is a year ahead of schedule and they still have two first round picks next year.
Buffalo was supposed to be good this year, Miami wasn't and was supposed to still be in the early rebuilding phase. I would be nervous if I was a Bills fan also, this was supposed to be their time and Miami is there to potentially pull the rug out from them.
I don't know why they would be nervous.
I want the Buffalo-Miami rivalry back.
it makes for a funner division.
It's going to be much more fun if Week 17 comes down to winner takes the division, rather than 1 team just running away with it.
