The Buffalo Bills season feels like it is hanging by a thread at 5-4 with games against the Miami Dolphins, Kansas City Chiefs, Philadelphia Eagles, and Dallas Cowboys still left on the schedule. There are not many games left on the schedule that the Bills should be clear favorites.
While the Denver Broncos are entering this game playing better as of late, winning their last two games which includes a win over the Kansas City Chiefs, the Bills have the better roster. However, as the team has learned over the past few weeks that does not mean they are going to win, or win easily.
The pressure this week falls on Josh Allen and the offense's shoulders as the defense is still dealing with numerous injuries. In addition to all the starters that are out for the season, the Bills have already ruled out Christian Benford and Micah Hyde. The team's starting linebacker Terrel Bernard is in concussion protocol but is questionable for this game.
The good news for the Buffalo Bills though is that this is a home game. They not only will have BillsMafia behind them (and likely disrupting Russell Wilson and the Broncos offense) but Josh Allen is much better at home this season. In five games this year, Allen has thrown 13 touchdowns, rushed for three touchdowns, and had only three interceptions.
More importantly, the Bills are 4-1 in those games this season.
The Bills have plenty of question marks which is frustrating to have at this point in the season but while inconsistent they have rarely lost back-to-back games under Sean McDermott. That trend should continue and the Bills understand the importance of this game and are able to come away with a win and keep their season alive.
