BILLS, POWER POINTS
STING OF UPSETS
The high-flying Buffalo Bills became the latest team in the NFL to learn the truth of that age-old league wisdom: Any team can beat any other team on any given…Tuesday.
Their game against Tennessee was postponed until Tuesday because of the COVID-19 virus, and that’s when they joined fellow unbeatens San Francisco and Kansas City in tasting defeat for the first time this year.
Those upsets dashed many a hope in Week 5 of the POWER POINTS Football Contest, but a Butler, PA contestant, Tom Hartzell, missed both Kansas City and Buffalo but did select Miami to upset the 49ers. That performance was good enough to yield for him 115 of the possible 136 points and a trip to the winner’s circle. He entered the contest through the Butler Eagle newspaper.
