Buffalo Bills once again sink lower with rout by Chicago Bears

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. – There are so many words that can be used to describe the state of the 2018 Buffalo Bills, but they are the words that, if I had said them in my mother’s presence when I was a kid, she would have cleansed my mouth with a bar of soap.

You know, back when that was a thing, because when I was young, there was no such thing as the timeout chair.

So while I can’t share a few of my bluest descriptions of this dysfunctional disaster of a team, I’ll settle for a potpourri of the able’s: Intolerable, miserable, unwatchable, laughable, deplorable. 

They all work for Sean McDermott’s Bills who are setting the bar so low for entertainment value that an insect could not limbo underneath it.

The losing streak reached four games Sunday afternoon as Buffalo fell behind 28-0 in the first half and ultimately lost 41-9 to the Chicago Bears, who are not exactly a reincarnation of the ’85 Bears, but were made to look so by the Bills.

This time, it wasn’t even all Nathan Peterman’s fault. Oh, he was lousy as usual, but he threw two interceptions in the second quarter that went off his receivers’ hands and popped lucklessly into the air, one of which was returned 19 yards for a walk-in touchdown by linebacker Leonard Floyd.

And Peterman couldn’t be faulted for tight end Jason Croom’s lost fumble when, after catching a pass, he had the ball ripped from his arms by linebacker Roquan Smith and scooped up by safety Eddie Jackson who ran untouched 65 yards to the end zone.
