Sad, Pats fans? Forget about Brady, and come join Robert Royal and the best fans in football.
I can’t believe it. I just heard Cris Collinsworth say he “now likes Buffalo in the AFC East this season.”
What the littlest tap on a shin can do to an entire NFL division. After the absolutely wimpiest knock on a leg since my little brother ran into my leg with his Big Wheels when he was three years old, the entire AFC East, and to some extent, the entire NFL, seems to be turned on its head.
