It's been a long time since the Patriots were shut out at home. How long? The entire length of Bill Belichick's tenure.
The last time the Pats were held to a goose egg in New England was in 1993, back when Bill Parcells was the coach and Drew Bledsoe was under center.
Tom Brady was 16 years old then.
The Pats have only been shut out at home six times since the merger, and only nine times in their history. Sunday's 16-0 loss was the first-ever shutout of the Pats in Gillette Stadium.
It's been even longer since the Patriots were shut out at home by the Bills, which happened waaaaaaaaaaaay back in 1960, before Brady was even born. Heck, Rex Ryan wasn't even born and Belichick was just eight years old.
The @buffalobills have shut-out the Patriots in New England for the first time since the team's first-ever meeting in 1960 (13-0).— Buffalo Bills PR (@BuffaloBillsPR) October 2, 2016
It was a massive win for the Bills, who have now beaten the Cardinals and Pats in back-to-back weeks after firing offensive coordinator Greg Roman.
Rex looked like he was down, but the rollercoaster is peaking once again.
