The Buffalo Bills ended the Las Vegas Raiders’ quick 1-0 record last week and will look to put the Washington Commanders in the loss column for the first time this season on Sunday. Not only that, but the Bills are looking to get their first road win of the season and improve to 2-1 on the season. The Commanders are the first NFC East opponent that the Bills will play this year and it will be a good test for them as they play the Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys later on in the season.
Even though this is an out of conference game, every game on the schedule matters and the Commanders are no joke. Despite having a weaker secondary, they don’t need much production if their defensive line is causing havoc. The Bills will need to have the same mentality like they had against the Raiders; don’t let the big plays happen and move off of the mistakes that are made.
Predictions are always fun to make, because no one knows what can happen on the field so everything is almost up for grabs.
Here are three bold predictions for the Buffalo Bills heading into Washington.
3.) Dalton Kincaid scores his first two touchdowns
Despite not getting into the endzone yet this season, the rookie tight end has been a great security blanket for Josh Allen by picking up the yards along the sideline. He almost had his first touchdown reception last week against Las Vegas but the pass was batted down in the endzone. This week, Kincaid could have a bigger week if the Bills stick with the same game plan of doing short dump-off passes and taking advantage of the short field opportunities.
With the defensive line that the Commanders have, Allen could face pressure throughout the game which means that he will have to utilize the weapons right in front of him rather than outside the numbers down the field. Kincaid is tied for the third most targets on the Bills through two weeks and there is no reason to believe that he won’t continue to be targeted. The rookie not only gets his first NFL touchdown, but he will get two touchdowns in the redzone.
