Bills look exactly like a Super Bowl favorite should look in blowout of the Rams
The Buffalo Bills were far from perfect on Thursday night. That's what should scare the rest of the NFL.
Things won't turn out well for any other team in the NFL that plays at the Los Angeles Rams this season, turns it over four times and doesn't hit an explosive play for three quarters. Any other team doing that will likely lose. The Bills won by 21.…Doorgaan
