The Buffalo Bills face arguably one of the league’s best defense’s with the Denver Broncos. Denver comes into this game currently sitting at 2-0, while Buffalo comes into this weeks game sitting at 1-1 suffering a loss to the Carolina Panthers last week.
After a poor run game in week 2 against Carolina, in a game where there was a total of 69 rushing yards the Bills will look to be back on track today. Tyrod Taylor (55), LeSean McCoy (9), and Mike Tolbert (5) yards. Buffalo’s allowed only 57.5 rushing yards per game through the first 2 weeks of the season. They have DT Marcell Dareus, OT Cordy Glenn, and DT Jerel Worthy all out for the game. That means we will see more of Cedric Thornton & Adolphus Washington. Buffalo has allowed an average of 207.5 passing yards on defense so far this year, fewer than Denver with 215 yards. Safety Jordan Poyer will look to continue his hot streak this week as he comes off an 11 tackle, 1 sack, and 3 passes defended game last week.
“The Broncos are a tough group, they really are. I think you just have to keep being consistent, running your plays, and you have to keep to your identity. You can’t change because of how the game’s going because they’ll make plays. They’re a good defense. They’re going to make plays, and you just have to keep at it.” said Bills RB LeSean McCoy
Denver comes into this week playing a rebuilding Buffalo Bills team. I think it’s safe to say that Denver has one of the league’s best offenses under Mike McCoy, with a total of 33 points per game. Denver has the league’s 13th best QB in Trevor Siemian according to ESPN, with 450 passing yards, 6 TDs, and 2 INTs. Denver will look to shut down the Bills offense by stopping the run game. If they’re able to stop the rushing attack, it should be an easy game for Denver.
