With quarterback Tom Brady back on the field, it was a pretty easy day for the New England Patriots as they avenged their only loss of the season in Buffalo on Sunday.
And Buffalo Bills head coach Rex Ryan knows one thing after the loss – his team is not winning the AFC East this year know matter what they do.
“I mean, it’s the halfway point, but I think in the division, it’s unrealistic to think you’re going to win your division when you just got beat by . . . How many games are they up by? Three? Something like that? I don’t see that changing,” Ryan said after the game, per CSNNE.
“I just told you the truth, but I never said it was going to ruin our season. I thought within winning the division, you’re pretty much shot if you really think we can really run the table and still win it. I don’t think so.”
Best they can shoot for is a wild card spot: “That team is three games up on us and I think at the halfway point they’ve lost one game,” he said. “And No. 12 is back, so yeah, I don’t see [winning the division] happening. I hope I’m wrong.”
“As bad as you want to be negative-wise, I get it,” Ryan added. I get it. We’re halfway through the season, but we’ll see. We have a lot of football left to be played. I believe in this team maybe more so than others.”
