Turnabout is fair play...

(or Anything You Can Do I Can Do Better...)

Consider two sets of New England Patriots/Buffalo Bills football games:
  • During the week before the first game of the 2003 football season, the New England Patriots cut safety Lawyer Milloy. He signed with Buffalo, and the Bills, led by Milloy and former Patriots' QB Drew Bledsoe, beat the Patriots 31-0. In week 17, the Patriots returned the favor, beating Buffalo 31-0 for their twelfth straight win.
  • In week 3 of the 2011 season, the Patriots jumped out to a 21-0 lead in Buffalo before a defensive meltdown led to a 34-31 loss. Today, the Patriots allowed Buffalo to score the first 21 points before putting up 49 straight in a blowout win.
Question: Is Bill Belichick enough of an evil genius to have intentionally coached his team to a 21-0 deficit in today's game, in a diabolical display of oneupsmanship?
