Tom Brady's dominance over Bills is unfathomable

The Pegula family may own the Bills on paper. But Tom Brady owns them on the field. 

The Patriots are gearing up for a divisional matchup against the Bills Sunday that contains all of the suspense of a preseason game. Even though the contest is in Buffalo, the Patriots are listed as 9-point favorites. (Jim Nantz and Tony Romo will be on the call, which shows the futility of the AFC.)

Brady has dominated the AFC East –– and really, the league as a whole –– throughout the Patriots’ dynastic run. But his supremacy over the Bills belongs in a special category. If Brady wins Sunday, it will be his 14th career victory in Buffalo. That means he’ll be tied for the most wins of any quarterback who’s played in the city since 2001, including all of the Bills starters. 

Drew Bledsoe, who spent three seasons with Buffalo from 2002-2004, also owns 14 wins at New Era Field (formerly Ralph Wilson Stadium). Tyrod Taylor and Ryan Fitzpatrick are tied for second with 13. 

Brady’s winning percentage in Buffalo is even more impressive than his number of victories. He is 14-2 up north, which is good for an .875 figure. Taylor possesses the second-best winning percentage with a 13-7 record (.650).

Keep in mind, Brady only plays one game per season in Buffalo. The superiority is astounding. 

Overall, Brady is 26-3 with 68 touchdown passes in his career against the Bills. He’s been especially good as of late, too. In Brady’s last three games in Buffalo, he’s thrown for 11 touchdowns and 0 interceptions with a 67.4 completion percentage. 

At 40 years old, it’s not hyperbolic to say Brady is playing the best football of his career. He should only be padding those MVP-caliber stats on Sunday.
