Week 3: Los Angeles Rams vs. Buffalo Bills
This is going to be the biggest test for the Buffalo Bills in the early part of the season. While the Los Angeles Rams performance did drop last year, they were still very close to a playoff appearance after a Super Bowl trip in 2018.
The defense is the biggest question mark, especially at linebacker, but they do have Aaron Donald who is the best defensive tackle in the game. The absence of Jon Feliciano could be a big issue and if the Bills struggle to block Donald they may be in store for a very close game.
However, the lack of talent at linebacker combined with a likely drop in performance from their running backs on offense is enough for the Buffalo Bills to move to 3-0.
Prediction: Win (3-0)
Week 4: Buffalo Bills at Las Vegas Raiders
The Buffalo Bills hit the road once again, this time heading west to play in Las Vegas for the first time in franchise history. They will be facing a Raiders team that could be a breakout team this coming season.
This game should be close and it wouldn’t be surprising at all for the Raiders to pull out a win. However, the experience the Buffalo Bills have and the fact that their defense should shut down the Raiders help them get a win and move to 4-0 to start the season.
Prediction: Win (4-0)
