Bend But Don’t Break

Tyrod Taylor said earlier this week that he’s just fine with getting into a shootout against Drew Brees.

"“Definitely,” Taylor said on Wednesday, via BNBlitz.com. “Definitely, this team that we’re facing in the Saints is definitely a high scoring offense, they’re a very talented defense, so we have to be prepared to score when we’re on offense and capitalize on our possessions."

That’s probably not the best way to go.

All season long the Bills have been a bend but don’t break defense. That needs to continue Sunday.

Buffalo must force field goals once the Saints get into the red zone.

The Bills have been extremely efficient in the red zone, ranking 10th and second in yards per play, according to BuffaloBills.com. That needs to continue Sunday.
