Injured Griffen isn't at Vikings' loss against Bills because of "personal matter"

Bills Film Room What Josh Allen can expect from Vikings’ sneaky pressure packages

Allen made Minnesota's Kirk Cousins look like the raw rookie in a stunning 27-6 upset of the Vikings on Sunday afternoon.

The Bills did, in fact, arrive in Minnesota Saturday morning to prepare for their Sunday game against the Minnesota Vikings, but the team's Twitter account posted a video showing their travels ending somewhere in southwest Wisconsin instead.

But I'd rank this one as the most unlikely massive upset, in both point spread and margin of defeat, arguably in the last 40 years. No NFL team had pulled off a win as such a large underdog, according to multiple reports, since the Washington Redskins shocked the Dallas Cowboys, who were 17.5-point favorites, in December 1995.

The 0-2 Bills are off to a rough start in 2018, and are expected to be in tough against the undefeated Vikings. The 17.5-point underdogs defeated Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith and Michael Irvin at the height of the Cowboys dynasty by a touchdown in Texas Stadium.

Buffalo's 21-point win over Minnesota is also the second-largest victory by a double-digit dog since 2003.

A week later, they lost 31-20 to the Chargers in a game where the final score wasn't indicative of how badly they played, to the point that Vontae Davis legitimately retired at halftime. Hughes bit on the screen fake, and linebacker Eric Kendricks didn't adjust in time to shift over and cover the tight end before he "walked into the end zone".

"I don't think we took them too lightly", Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said.

The seventh overall pick in the draft out of Wyoming who took the job earlier than expected in relief of a struggling Nathan Peterman in the opener, completed 15 of 22 passes for 196 yards. The rookie QB had been harrassed in his first two games of action, including last week's loss to the Chargers, which was his first National Football League start. It's nothing new to us. "It was a big play, but it was just another first down". Hopefully we don't have to wait long to get back the hype train. "We need to communicate better and do better on defense".
