Everyone expected the Buffalo Bills to be blown out by the Minnesota Vikings, who were favored to win by an absurd amount. A matchup between one of the best teams in the NFL and one of the worst, it has not gone quite as expected.
The Bills, who didn’t seem to even know what state they would play in, quickly jumped out to an early lead.
Then it just kept happening, a field goal followed by another touchdown gave the Bills a 17-0 lead as Kirk Cousins turned the ball over twice. Suddenly, the team everyone expected to get blown out was instead destroying the Vikings.
As the Bills continued to build their massive lead, Twitter reacted to the unexpected chaos taking place in Minnesota.
Feeling pretty good about my 20k Bills money line bet.

There is an 82 year old woman named June who I’m watching the game with.
She told be the Bills would win.
My plan is to kidnap June and take her everywhere with me from now on.
My apologies in advance to June’s family. #GoBills

A 17-point underdog hasn't won outright in the NFL since 1995 (Redskins over Dallas).
Vikings are down 17-0 to Buffalo.

Bills are up 17 on Minnesota. Because of course they are. Why do I think the Vikings still win this?
