Oh, how the mighty have fallen.
On Monday night, ESPN ran a promo for next week’s Monday Night Football game between the AFC East winning Buffalo Bills and the New England Patriots, who were recently eliminated from the playoffs on Sunday.
During the promo, ESPN didn’t include any Patriots highlights and only used Bills highlights to promote the game.

NFL fans were in shock that ESPN wouldn’t promote the Patriots, who have been one of the biggest drawing teams for the last 20 years.
Wait did I just watch a promo for next weeks MNF against the Pats with 0 that’s no Patriots highlights? What has the world come to!?!?
