Prediction: Bills 16-14
This just screams low-scoring affair.
The Jaguars have one of the league’s best defenses and Buffalo has been struggling on offense.
The Bills have one of the league’s best passing defenses and Jacksonville has Blake Bortles, who’s one of the league’s worst quarterbacks.
Something has to give.
Don’t be shocked if Buffalo scores a defensive touchdown and that proves to be the difference. There will be chances to pick off Bortles. The Bills just have to make the most of their opportunities.
LeSean McCoy’s availability’s is another heavy factor. The Pro Bowl running back was a limited participant in Friday’s practice, but reports say that McCoy is expected to play on Sunday.
"“The good thing about adversity and this team is that we’ve proved to be able to stay focused through the midst of whatever happens,” Tyrod Taylor said, via BuffaloBills.com. “We want the best for Shady. If he’s healthy, we want him absolutely to be out there playing and giving us his all. If he’s not, we have a tremendous group of guys in the backfield that would be able to step in and carry the load.”"
The two former college teammates are facing off.
Can Benjamin get the best of the fellow Florida State alum and make a play or two? It would go along way.
And don’t forget about Charles Clay.
If Benjamin can’t break from Ramsey, Clay could have some opportunities over the middle. No Jacksonville linebacker has a pass coverage grade higher than 83, according to PFF.
