The Bills basically fell apart last week with corner Vontae Davis retiring at halftime and stud rusher LeSean McCoy getting injured, but that didn't stop the team from dominating the Vikings and quarterback Kirk Cousins. Three plays later the defense did its part too, sacking Kirk Cousins - who had a disgusting game on Sunday - and forcing a fumble.
There have been other lowlights during the Zimmer era - a 34-6 loss to the Indianapolis Colts in December 2016 comes to mind - but in that case it came during a season in which the Vikings had fallen apart after a 5-0 start and the fact was that team just gave up. Kirk Cousins hit Kyle Rudolph for a 4-yard TD with a failed two point conversion to make the score 27-6 Buffalo with 2:59 left in the game.
The Minnesota Vikings, a team that was in the championship game a year ago, playing at home, against a Buffalo Bills team that has looked terrible through the first two weeks, took one of the most inexplicable and worst losses possible.
Allen hurdled Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr on a run for a first down, and took a solid hit as he completed the run. Cousins fumbled on each of Minnesota's first two offensive drives of the game and he didn't lead the team to points until the final minutes of the fourth quarter. Without Dalvin Cook on the field, Minnesota finished Sunday with a whopping 14 rushing yards.
Maybe not, but you are supposed to compete and the Vikings failed to do that.
Bills: Play at Green Bay next Sunday. Remember, Baily wanted to play for a contender.
The 0-2 Bills are off to a rough start in 2018, and are expected to be in tough against the undefeated Vikings. Did the Vikings just completely look past the Bills to Thursday's matchup against the Rams?
