Bucky Gleason's Power Take: Dear Atlanta, Buffalo feels your pain

Dear Atlanta,

We know you’re hurting. Trust us, you are not alone. We have been there many times against Tom Brady. We have counted him out and watched him prove us wrong. He beat you in the biggest game, but we feel your pain.

What you experienced Sunday was a compilation of Tom Brady’s career against the Bills, right down to the Super Bowl-record 466 yards passing. He threw for the exact same number of yards two years ago in Buffalo, the most ever against the Bills.

The Falcons knocked him down and pushed him around – and lost. The Bills beat him up in the second meeting two years ago – and lost. In fact, the game was tied in the second half before James White scored. In 2012, the Bills and Pats were tied after three quarters. Brady led them to 31 points in the fourth.

Brady has a 5-0 career record against your team, including playoffs. Try playing against him twice a season. He’s 26-3 against the Bills and a major cause of their 17-year playoff drought. You found out Sunday that he’s the greatest of all time. We already knew.

Sincerely, Buffalo.
