This week’s NFL odds suggest the New England Patriots are going to blow out the Buffalo Bills in Orchard Park, New York this week. I know you are going to say, you are a Bills fan, blah, blah, blah. Well, I maybe a Bills fan but the Bills are 3-0.
Yes, two of the Bills wins against the Jets and Bengals were rough, but the Bills are not a bad team. I have been a Bills fan since birth, and this team is doing what great teams do. They win the games they are supposed to. The New England Patriots own the Bills since Tom Brady has been in the NFL, but this football team for the Bills is different.
The Bills play calling is suspect, Josh Allen goes into halftime with 200 yards passing, and has all three games. He comes out of halftime and they stop throwing the ball. Josh Allen has not broke 300 yards this year, and shoot they have not had 300 yard passer in 35 games. That is insane especially when you consider Josh Allen had 211 yards at halftime of the Bengals game last week.
Allen finished the game with 243 yards passing, so why have the Bills been playing great defense, and then playing conservative football in the second half?
I have been trying to think why the Bills would do this, but maybe they do not want to unleash the entire playbook, but this week if the Bills do not want to get clapped at home, they better throw the playbook and some more at the Patriots.
This year the Patriots have been dominate, their defense is amazing, but they suffered some key losses to injury last week. Losing their fullback James Develin hurts, and if Julian Edelman cannot go that would be a huge blow. The Bills defense is gross too, they have been really doing a good job at stopping the run. They will need to keep it up this week if they want to go on to 4-0. This is for the AFC East top spot. Right now the Bills and Patriots are tied, and we will find out what Josh Allen is made of.
After three weeks Josh Allen looks like a future Pro Bowler. He has led his team on two fourth quarter comeback wins, one against the Jets where his team was down 17 points. Josh Allen is now 8-6 as a starter, and if he can somehow pull off a win against the Patriots this week, watch out!
BillsMafia is going to be loud, and they are going to be insane. I feel bad for the Patriots, but hopefully they can keep it up the entire game, because the Bills players need all the support they can get. Shoot the media and Vegas think they will get smoked…..
