    Pretty much even on offense. Both teams had two nice ball-possession drives for field goal attempts. We made both our attempts (one just barely) and they missed one (just barely). Offensive Yardage was very similar -- we ran better, they passed better. Both teams got a blocked punt for a TD (although our offense had to mop up to convert it). Both teams got a good pass rush going. Our resulted in sacks more often, but theirs resulted more often rushed throws. They were more disciplined. We hurt ourselves with penalties, particularly the false starts.

    The difference was we made one more defensive play for 7 points. Or, more simply, turnovers. We were +1, and that was that.

    Weather was a great equilizer, and, as usually happens in weather, turnovers mattered.

    I agree. The game was too even for me. At least this time, they were always in the lead(unlike Ravens and Phil game)

    Today, a win is a win.

    Yep. 1 TO and a missed FG.

    There were two return TDs, plus a third return that went to the 3 yard line. (Actually, I think the Bills recovered their blocked punt, but it hardly mattered.)

    This is one game where all the cliches about TOs applied in full force.
