Bills and Josh Allen are stunning the Vikings

Allen made Minnesota's Kirk Cousins look like the raw rookie in a stunning 27-6 upset of the Vikings on Sunday afternoon. The Vikings were -2000 on the money line (that is, the odds of them simply winning outright), which meant every $100 bet would net you a strong $5. The most competent performance at U.S. Bank came as many in the crowd of 66,800 booed their heroes off the field at halftime.

Cousins was actually asked about Davis' postgame celebration after the fact, and the Vikings quarterback wasn't impressed.

The Vikings had two first downs at the half to 13 for the Bills.

Minnesota began Sunday by allowing the Bills offense to march 75 yards down the field for a touchdown. Allen dived to finish a 10-yard run by beating Anthony Barr to the edge of the end zone and scraping the pylon with the ball to finish the game's first drive.

It didn't even point out Minnesota.

Cruz agreed with O'Rourke's sentiments and expressed the same to his Democratic opponent. "Imagine the stain on our conscience". Cruz recalled meeting with students and teachers from the school. "We're not happy 'til they're not happy".

Foot Spider Web Blankets Entire Lagoon In Greece
A stretch of about 984 feet of spider web has blanketed land along the shores of Aitoliko, a town in western Greece . The high temperatures in this area are the ideal conditions for these spiders to breed.

Where Allen did the most damage was on the ground, putting together a mini-highlight film with his feet while injured running back LeSean McCoy watched in team-colored sweats - with a big smile - from the sideline. Dalvin Cook was out with a hamstring injury (perhaps another look-ahead type of situation?) and Latavius Murray, a popular fantasy football waiver add, was completely useless, rushing twice for one yard.

As such, it is understandable that Bills players were pretty hyped after the victory.

The Bills entered the game 0-2, having lost those two games by a combined 55 points.

But I'd rank this one as the most unlikely massive upset, in both point spread and margin of defeat, arguably in the last 40 years.
