Buffalo Bills Cheated Versus The New England Patriots


Yesterday the New England Patriots beat up on the Buffalo Bills despite working against a team that was blatantly cheating throughout the game.


From Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk:

"The Bills hosted the Patriots at Ralph Wilson Stadium, and on multiple occasions the very loud third-down train horn blared when it arguably shouldn’t have.In the memo sent last month reminding all teams of the NFL’s in-stadium noise policies, the league said this: “The home team is permitted to play audio while the visiting team is on offense and the play clock is running. The audio must cease by the time the play clock reaches 20 seconds, or when the visiting team’s offense reaches the line of scrimmage, whichever occurs first. Pursuant to this policy, the visiting team’s offense is considered being at the line of scrimmage when the center touches the ball.”The Patriots used the no-huddle offense on multiple occasions, and on multiple occasions when the Patriots used the no-huddle offense the Bills were blaring the train horn."

Where is the national outrage? Doesn’t the NFL want to protect the integrity of the game? According to most fans and owners, cheating does not belong in the NFL, and whoever does it should be punished severely. Let’s suspend Tyrod Taylor! Strip the Bills of draft picks! BURN THE STADIUM DOWN!!!!

Oh wait, this wasn’t the Patriots, so nobody gives a crap.

It’s really amazing to witness, honestly. To see the sports world go berserk over minor allegations (most of which aren’t true) against the Patriots, but don’t care at all when other teams get caught red-handed breaking the rules. But that is what happens when you dominate the league for 13+ years, and constantly win when everyone else loses. You become hated because of your success, and the other 31 teams in the league will go to extreme lengths (often breaking the rules themselves) to see you get punished.

But the Pats keep on winning, despite dumb punishments, incorrect allegations, and illegal piped in noise from other teams, and that is what makes me proud to be a fan. They don’t care about all of that, they just keep beating you, and continue to make you look stupid for 19 games a year.

In all seriousness, the piped in noise is not that big of a deal, especially considering Tom Brady was the opposing quarterback. He knows how to deal with it, as evidenced by his 466 yard, three touchdown drubbing of Buffalo. If the NFL finds the Bills guilty, give them a fine (like they should have done to Brady), and move one. I just wanted to make a stink about it because if the shoe were on the other foot, and the Pats were being accused, it would be the lead story on CNN
