NFL fans across the globe were shocked when the Buffalo Bills came out on top against the Patriots, in an exciting encounter at Ralph Wilson Stadium, to go to 3-0 for the season.
They continued their run of exciting games as they beat the Eagles, by a touchdown, to progress to 4-1.
However, the Bills season has taken an all to familiar turn for the worse, as they slumped to their heaviest defeat of the season, when they went down to the Cowboys 44-7.
That took their record to 5-4.
Now at the end of Week 11 they suffered another heavy defeat to the Miami Dolphins, 35-8. The Dolphins have started to turn their season around, but it does appear to be a case of too little, too late.
The Bills still hold second place in the AFC East but if New England defeat the Chiefs, they will have a small cushion at the head of the division.
The Bills now face a divisional road trip to Jets in Week 12 hoping to open a cushion of their own to protect second position.
Ryan Fitzpatrick has played his way out of being a Pro Bowl contender, for the time being, after throwing 7 interceptions in the last three games and has only thrown two touchdowns in between them.
Bills fans are beginning to see that their team really needs to regain the momentum; they had at the start of the season, if they are going to stand any chance of making the playoffs for the first time in 13 years.
