Buffalo Bills: Keys to victory and final score prediction for Week 2
Attack the middle of the Dolphins defense
The second key to victory for the Buffalo Bills in Week 2 is to attack the middle of the field through the air. As mentioned before, the Dolphins have excellent corners on the outsides of their defense with Jones and Howard. If there is a weakness in the passing game, it’s over the middle, attacking Dolphins linebacker Jerome Baker, as well as testing rookie safety Brandon Jones.
In theory, if the middle of the field is open to attack, this means the Bills offense should be utilizing slot receiver Cole Beasley as the weapon to attack this weakness of the Dolphins defense. With four receptions for 58 yards last week against the Jets, expect Allen to target Beasley a bit more in this matchup with the Dolphins.
With how ineffective the ground game was last week for the Bills, it should not be assumed that Buffalo can move the chains with their running attack alone. Hopefully, this means Beasley can step up for this Bills offense and convert some key third downs while accumulating over 75 yards in this game.
Obviously, it won’t only be up to Beasley to keep the chains moving in the right direction for the Bills offense this Sunday. This will be a big matchup for both John Brown and Stefon Diggs to win their fair share of one on ones against top tier cover corners in the NFL.
