The Cincinnati Bengals and Baltimore Ravens are squaring off in the Thursday night NFL game. It has been all Bengals so far through one half of play.
Led by Andy Dalton’s four touchdown passes–three of which went to A.J. Green–the Bengals lead 28-14 at intermission. The game hasn’t even been that close, but Baltimore scored a touchdown in the final seconds of the second quarter.
Both teams entered tonight’s game with a 1-0 record. In fact, the Ravens destroyed the Buffalo Bills in Week 1, winning 47-3.
Given that result, and the way tonight is unfolding, Twitter is filled with media members making the same observation: the Bills must be really bad.
My goodness. How bad are the Bills?

The Bills are bad. The Ravens aren't as bad. The Bengals aren't this good. First half takeaways.

I think what we're learning from this Bengals-Ravens game is the Buffalo Bills are a very bad football team.

Just when I was getting over the Ravens demolishing of the Bills, now the Ravens are getting their arses kicked. Good lord the Bills are terrible.

Now, the NFL is a week-to-week league. Just because you played well one game doesn’t mean you will the following game, especially on a short week on Thursday night.
Still, we feel pretty confident saying that the Buffalo Bills aren’t very good. Sure, the Ravens might be better than they are showing right now, but the Bills have no offensive line, no skill talent outside of LeSean McCoy and a rookie quarterback starting this Sunday.
They are in rough shape.
