1.) Don’t play down to the competition
We have seen this story throughout the season, which could cost the Bills a playoff berth. Buffalo seems to reverse “the script” in which they play great against great teams (Chiefs, Cowboys, Eagles), but then will make careless mistakes against teams that they should have blown out of the water (Jets in Week 1, Giants, Patriots). With the state that the Chargers are in as far as a team, they don’t seem like a big threat on paper but that is what the game is for.
The Bills will need to play with aggression and keep the gas petal to the floor and allow no sign of life for the Chargers. They are the kind of team that have been struck with bad luck with injuries and the Bills need to take advantage of the fact that they are playing against a good amount of backups. Don’t play down to the competition and don’t get into a last minute fourth quarter battle where one mistake could decide the winner
