Week 3 – Los Angeles Rams (Home)
The third game on this list was hard to pick and it really came down to this game and a road trip to Las Vegas to face the Raiders. The easy pick would be the Raiders but the Rams are a team that is prepared for serious regression in 2020.
It is hard to imagine considering the Rams are only two years removed from a Super Bowl appearance. However, they are entering this year losing Brandin Cooks, Todd Gurley, Clay Matthews, Dante Fowler, Cory Littleton, and Nickell Robey-Coleman. No matter how good of a team you have, losing all this talent is certainly hard to overcome.
The Buffalo Bills are probably playing them at the perfect time, early in the season but more importantly at home at New Era Field. The cross country trip is something that needs to be taken into account here. As the Rams try to find their way and see who they have to replace the talent, the Buffalo Bills are a team that is bringing back almost their entire starting lineup.
In an offseason that is going to look vastly different and probably have fewer on-field practices, this familiarity shouldn’t be understated. The Buffalo Bills should be able to take this game and win it fairly easily.
