Bills Shutout Eagles 26-0
The Bills played their second outstanding defensive game in a row today as they rolled over the Eagles 26-0. The rejuvenated defense has now allowed only three points in two games. Today's shutout was the first by the Bills since 1992. The offense struggled once again in the red zone but Steve Christie made four of five field goal attempts with touchdowns by Jay Riemersma and Antowain Smith sandwiched in between the kicks. The Bills dominated from the start and the score could have been much worse if not for the red zone woes. MORE

All the Number Favor Bills: Check out some of these meaningless numbers. Flutie is 45-3 in home games since 1993, the Eagles haven't won a road game since 1996 and the Bills haven't lost an NFC East home game in 12 years. What does all this mean? Nothing. This should all add up to a Bills win, but the law of averages have to come in to effect sooner or later, let's hope it's later.

Thomas To Return Early? There is a chance that Thurman Thomas will miss less than the six weeks he is expected to miss. He told ESPN that he feels much better and may miss only a couple of more weeks.
