Week 10 – Away vs Arizona Cardinals
The Cardinals have a lot that will inflict fear in the opponents. A young genius offensive mind calling plays. Second year quarterback Kyler Murray looks poised to continue his upward trend in the league. Rounding out the offensive could be the best wide receiver tandem in the league in DeAndre Hopkins and Larry Fitzgerald.
Defensively they are solid too with former Buffalo Bills defensive tackle Jordan Phillips who will be looking to show the Bills what they miss in not having him. The Bills could end up needing to rely on their own offensive power in this one which is fine but the Bills have yet to prove they can consistently put up big points. The Bills won’t want to head into a bye week with the taste of defeat in their mouth so that will help.
Week 14 – Home vs Pittsburgh Steelers
While the Buffalo Bills last season avoided a matchup against Ben Roethlisberger they probably won’t get that lucky again. In addition, they escaped without having to deal with JuJu Smith-Schuster. While we can assume both will play this year we do know Pittsburgh will bring a strong defensive effort into a nationally televised game.
The Steelers were without a first round draft pick so they won’t bring a young top talent into town, but they did sign tight end Eric Ebron who can cause problems for a defense. If Pittsburgh comes to town healthy this one will be a back and forth affair as it was last time they hooked up on Sunday Night Football.
