Click here to listen’s to this week’s podcast. Momentum? Probably not a word Bills fans expected to hear into week 4 of the NFL season. Admit it, the Bills team this past Sunday was better than you expected? I’ll admit that I was skeptical of the Bills offense after there was little production in their week 2 loss to the Carolina Panthers. True, the ground game was shut down for the second week in a row. However, this time around, in a week 3 win over Denver, the Bills were able to execute a successful passing game.
Despite the overall opinion of Tyrod Taylor, you have to admit that he was efficient; even if it’s just on paper. 20 completions on 26 attempts for 213 yards with 2 touchdown passes and no interceptions. Granted he had some throws that were off target, but he was able to distribute the ball to several different players along with making plays with his legs, along with facing difficult pressure all game long.
As decent as the offense was, the defense has looked spectacular through 3 weeks of the season. Going into the 2017 season the bulk of question marks concerned a Bills secondary that doesn’t return a single starter. However, the play of Tre’davious White, and E.J. Gaines, and Micah Hyde to name a few; have had a major impact on the Bills pass defense, not allowing a touchdown through the air in 3 games.
As the Bills head to Atlanta to face the defending NFC champs, can they keep the momentum on defense? The momentum that they started in week one that has continued through three weeks. Can they keep the momentum that was built on the success of the passing game against a pretty good Denver defense? Can the momentum on special teams continue? Yes, the Bills new kicker, Steven Hauschka, had a pretty good week 3rd week; earning AFC special teams player of the week.
Brad “The Bruiser” Eichkorn and Alex Jones talk about all the momentum that the Bills have gained going into this weekends game vs the Atlanta Falcons. Other topics include:
