One of the tidbits that may have been glossed over during the NFL's Week 13 is that the San Francisco 49ers went into Buffalo and beat the Bills.
They are the first West Coast team to win a game in the Eastern time zone this season. That's right, the West Coast is now 1-15 on the East Coast.
San Francisco had lost earlier in the season in New York to the Giants. The Arizona Cardinals lost to Washington, New York (Jets), Carolina and Philadelphia. Seattle lost in Buffalo, New York (Giants), Tampa Bay and Miami. San Diego lost in Miami, Buffalo and Pittsburgh. Oakland lost in Buffalo, Baltimore and Miami. This Niners' win in Buffalo was a first.
There are a few more cross-country games to look forward to. The Niners still have to travel to Miami, the Cardinals travel to New England and both the Raiders and Chargers head to Tampa Bay. It looks as if the West could be 1-19 at the end of the season.
