I fell asleep early last night, so maybe I shouldn’t talk. But when I woke up to see that the Buffalo Bills had lost to the Denver Broncos 24-22 in last-second fashion, a smile grew upon my face like I was The Grinch — and my heart just grew twelve sizes.

It was the perfect way to finish the BYE week.

And then, just when I thought my morning could get any better, I saw this Kyle Brandt reaction video. A reaction video that could win the former reality TV star and heartthrob a daytime Emmy.

With Will Lutz’s game-winning field goal, not only did the Buffalo Bills lose to the Broncos — a team that the Dolphins scored 70 points on earlier in the year — but they stayed comfortably in second place in the AFC East, currently sitting 1.5 games behind the Mike McDaniel’s team.

But I’m not the only one enjoying a Buffalo Bills loss on this fine Tuesday. Here are some of the top reactions from Denver’s epic 24-22 win over the Bills. (I will try my best to update these throughout the day)

And, of course, me. (Yes, I know they’re only 1.5 games up on the Bills)

Here are the remaining schedules for both AFC East contenders.

The remainder of the Bills’ schedule is as follows:

The remainder of the Dolphins' schedule is as follows:

Sure, there’s plenty of football to be played. But heading into Week 11, no team should feel better off where they’re at — and how they’re playing (overall) — than the Miami Dolphins. Now, they need to finish strong in the season's final month and a half of the season. #FinsUp
