The Buffalo Bills started the 2011 NFL season with a powerful record of five wins and two losses, just to follow up with a dismal 6-10 record.
The Bills looked great coming out of the gates, and they had fans and critics raving about their play.
They beat division rival New England Week 3 and seemed like the real deal. They went into their Week 7 bye with a 4-2 record and then won their next game after the bye.
Week 9 was a game changer, as a matter of fact it was a season changer and the Buffalo Bills went down hill from there.
The Bills were playing division rival New York in Week 9 and they could have made the biggest statement of the season. The final score of the game was 27-11 in favor of the Jets. Not only had they lost the game but they had consistently lost the rest of the season. Buffalo won just one more game for the rest of the season. What was the reason for this collapse? What was the reason for the great 5-2 start?
Let's take an in depth look at what happened.
