Week 2 Twitter Pregame Throwdown: Patriots vs. Bills Edition
The Buffalo Bills are under the impression that the entire country is rooting for them against the Patriots, and they're probably right. Rex Ryan is no stranger to Bill Belichick and the Pats, and he is notoriously unafraid of talking smack before a game with his greatest foes.
When asked about a comment made by an anonymous Indianapolis Colts player saying that they hope the Bills win, Ryan was ready with the quip of the weekend.
"The whole league's hoping," he said.
Bills safety Aaron Williams expanded on the notion that not only do the Bills fans desperately want this win, but the players do too.
"I definitely noticed ever since we beat Indy, everybody's been talking about it," said Williams. "Since literally the last game, as soon as that game ended, they were screaming, 'We want Tom Brady.' For us, it's definitely exciting, we've been waiting for this moment ever since last year."
Ryan has certainly reinvigorated the fans' confidence, especially with their thorough win over the Colts who were considered Super Bowl favorites heading into the regular season. Even the official team store got in on the Sunday hype, trolling the Patriots by distinctly displaying air pumps for sale; visible through the glass front windows.
That's pretty funny. I wonder whose idea that was...
In honor of the early Sunday match up that has all of NFL nation fired up, let the Bills and Patriots cheerleading and shit talking on Twitter commence!
First up...the best of the tailgate signs.
That's simultaneously disturbing and beautiful.
Courtroom sketch Brady will never get old. Ever. And neither will Patriots cheating jokes, unfortunately.
Susan coming in with the sick burn! #DamnSusan
Is there anything better than two middle-aged dudes trying desperately to take a successful selfie? A for effort, boys.
This guy gets it. No matter how much you hype it, it's still just Week 2.
Which new 'Gate will we have by the end of this game?!
That's just good advice right there, plain and simple.
No seriously, somebody notify the medical professionals.
Holy shit, are these people actually making sense and treating sports with the level of seriousness it deserves? This is the first and last time you will ever see a well-reasoned, friendly exchange about a Patriots game on Twitter. Soak it in!
Aaaand cue the people that are pissed about not having the game on their local network.
