Indianapolis Colts @ Buffalo Bills: 3 Bold Predictions

CARSON, CA - NOVEMBER 19: Nathan Peterman
CARSON, CA - NOVEMBER 19: Nathan Peterman /

It’s getting to that time of year again where the Bills are leading us down a familiar path.

In a poor AFC, 9-7 would give the Bills a chance at the playoffs, that would involve a win on Sunday first of all. So will the Bills beat the Colts? Let’s discuss that in our bold predictions. Remember, they’re bold for a reason.

Peterman will throw for 300 yards

Obviously, this is based on the assumption that Peterman will start. Unlike the Chargers, the Colts are the perfect opposition for Nathan Peterman to face at home. The Colts have a poor defense, giving up the most passing yards in the league. We need to see what Peterman has in his locker, and I can see him going out there and having a great game, albeit against a team that really should want to lose this game.

Peterman will be helped by the return of Kelvin Benjamin, who will start the game. They connected on a pass early in LA, on the same play Benjamin hurt his knee, it was a great play, and we’ll be looking for more of the same.


Bills to rack up the sacks

The Bills pass rush has been underwhelming, to say the least so far this year. That will change on Sunday. Not only is the Colts defense bad, the O-Line is too. They lead the league in sacks given up with 51, Buffalo has given up 35.  We saw some signs of life from the defensive line against New England; so I can see a big day against the Colts, with six sacks on the day.

Look for Eddie Yarbrough to have a big day with Shaq Lawson out; he’s been extremely impressive since making the team as an undrafted free agent.

Kelvin Benjamin to have a 100 yard game

Benjamin will be itching to get going after being out since the first drive of the game in LA. It’s fair to say things haven’t gone to plan since he arrived in a trade from Carolina but he could still have a massive impact for the Bills this year.

Expect Peterman to go to his big receiver early and if that goes well, Benjamin is in for a big day. 100 yards receiving is nothing spectacular in the NFL, but for the Bills this season, it would be excellent.
