You’ve heard football analysts’, writers’, insiders’ and bloggers’ takes on the Bills from week to week, but this is where we want to give YOU, the Bills Mafia, a chance for your voices to be heard. From your calls on Sports 1280 WHTK’s John DiTullio Show and WHAM 1180’s Bob Matthews Show to your interaction through social media, all opinions are welcome.
Unless you were out braving the rainy elements of Ralph Wilson Stadium, you were one of many unable to watch the Bills and their 16-0 victory over the Dolphins Sunday afternoon.
Miami, playing for a chance at the playoffs, came out of the locker room and laid an egg right out of the gate. They made zero adjustments as the game progressed and continued to throw the ball despite the slippery conditions. The Dolphins were unable to get any offense going and most of the time seemed to be a step behind largely, in part, due to the Bills defense's ability to shut down Tannehill.
A single season sack record of 56 was set by the Bills defense as they put the ultimate beat down on the porous Miami offense.
The performance by the defense this season has certainly given fans something to look forward to.

Callers on Sports1280 WHTK's John DiTullio Show and WHAM1180's Bob Matthews show phoned in Monday with their reactions to the Bills win.
Here's what they said their biggest takeaways were from week 17:
The Bills may not be playing for a playoff spot, but next week have a chance to play for pride as they take on the Patriots in Foxborough. Though they'll have the Miami win giving the team some momentum, I mean, let's face it compared to the Patriots...
