The Buffalo Bills head to the 1-3 Cincinnati as underdogs again… somehow.
After a surprising yet wonderful win in Atlanta, the Buffalo Bills will be full of confidence heading into the game. Unfortunately, the injury bug has arrived, with two starters definitely out in WR Jordan Matthews and LB Ramon Humber. Anyhow, into the predictions…
Zay Jones will show up
With Jordan Matthews out with a thumb injury, Zay Jones is now the number one Wide Receiver. It’s fair to say Zay has started the year as slow as he possibly could have. Nobody will want to do well more than him, and I believe this week he will. Purely through the volume factor, the Bills aren’t blessed with options at WR. Tyrod has to throw to someone, right?
Shady will have a big day / Score two TDs
Unfortunately for LeSean McCoy so far this season, the offensive line hasn’t allowed him to do as well as he would have hoped. To score a touchdown this season, I expect Shady to be back to his best this Sunday. The line has been improving each week with a slight change in scheme; it should all come together in Cincinnati. I’m expecting multiple touchdowns from McCoy.
The Bills will not give up a passing TD
Only one passing TD has been given up so far this year by the Bills. EJ Gaines is likely to be out for the game tomorrow, meaning Shareece Wright will get the start. That’s a step-down, but with the way the defense is playing in this scheme, I think they’ll be just fine. It won’t be easy though, with AJ Green to deal with. Tre White will need to carry on his excellent start to his professional career.
It will by no means be an easy game this Sunday, but if the Bills go into the bye at 4-1, get excited. Let us know your predictions for the game in the comments!
