Last week in Week 8, the Buffalo Bills played on Thursday night against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, which ended with a failed hail mary pass attempt by Tampa Bay to give the Bills a 24-18 win. This week, they head into a Sunday night matchup with the Cincinnati Bengals before going into a Monday night game against the Denver Broncos in Week 10.
The Bills are playing in three consecutive primetime games before they start playing some 4 PM window games, and eventually getting back to a 1 PM game on New Year's Eve against the New England Patriots.
The Bills have already played on Sunday night this season against the New York Giants, in which they won a close 14-9 battle against their old offensive coordinator, Brian Daboll. Since Josh Allen was drafted by the Bills, they have only played against the Bengals twice, once with Joe Burrow and once without. In the one game that Allen and Burrow faced off, it was Burrow and the Bengals that dominated Allen and the Bills.
However, Allen has an advantage going into this game against the Bengals. In his career so far, Allen is 5-0 on Sunday night football where he has beaten the Pittsburgh Steelers twice (2019 & 2020), the Kansas City Chiefs (2021), the Green Bay Packers (2022) and the New York Giants a couple weeks ago.
The Bills only have one true dominant win over a powerhouse this season against the Miami Dolphins back in Week 4. The AFC is already tough as it shows and the Bills don't seem to be the same team that they have been the last two seasons. Buffalo has the chance to make a statement by taking down the team that embarrassed them in the playoffs last year, along with Allen improving to 6-0 on Sunday night football.
