There are plenty of storylines ahead of the Buffalo Bills’ matchup with the Green Bay Packers on Sunday Night Football. It will be a matchup between Aaron Rodgers and Josh Allen, the quarterback who has won the last two MVP awards against the player who looks to be one of the favorites to win the award this season.

In addition, it is a matchup between one of the best offensive-minded coaches (Matt LaFleur) and one of the top defensive coaches (Sean McDermott) in the league.

Both of these teams have a lot of talent on their roster but the challenge with predicting the winner in this game is the Packers haven’t played up to that talent level. They are entering this game losing their last three and have a 3-4 record.

Final Score Prediction: Buffalo Bills 34, Green Bay Packers 17

While the Green Bay Packers should turn their season around at some point, this would appear to be the week that it doesn’t happen. The Buffalo Bills are playing dominating football on both sides of the ball and Sean McDermott has shown he does an excellent job preparing his team coming out of a bye week as evidenced by his 5-0 record after a bye.

If the Buffalo Bills are able to play a similar game to what they did in Kansas City by effectively pressuring the quarterback, utilizing Devin Singletary and the run game a little more, and taking the shots downfield when the opportunities they will put themselves in a great position to secure another win and remain in first place in the AFC.

This is a game that should remain close through the first half. However, the Buffalo Bills have proven this year to be an excellent second half team and I expect that the Bills pull away in the final two quarters to move to 6-1 on the season.
