Weeks 5-8 for the Buffalo Bills

Week 5.) vs Jacksonville Jaguars (London)

In this international game, the Bills find themselves 4-0 to start off the first quarter of the season. Even though this is a “home game” for the Bills, the Jaguars play in London each year which gives them an advantage here. To make things more complicated for the Bills, the Jaguars will have already played in London the week before. 

The last time these two teams met, the Bills lost 9-6 on a horrific performance from their offense. That was when Trevor Lawrence struggled due to issues caused by former coach Urban Meyer. With the advantages the Jags have and the team they have built back up, the Bills suffer their first loss of the season outside of the country. 

Record: 4-1

Week 6.) vs NY Giants - Sunday Night

Former Bills offensive coordinator and current Giants head coach Brian Daboll makes his return to Highmark to face his old team and his old quarterback that he turned into a superstar in 2020 and 2021. 

The Giants have become a more disciplined team under Daboll and Daniel Jones has limited the turnover problems that he had previously. This game is unique because both Daboll and McDermott know each other and what their weaknesses are. What separates these two coaches is the talent level, and the Bills have the more talented quarterback and roster overall. 

In a closer game than expected, the Bills get back in the win column over the second team that plays in New Jersey. 

Record: 5-1

Week 7.) @ New England Patriots

The Bills’ division game on the season takes place in Gillette Stadium against the Patriots, who now have Bill O’Brien calling the plays on offense. The Bills have owned the Patriots since 2020, only losing one to them in 2021 on a super windy Monday night where Mac Jones only threw three passes. Aside from that, the Bills have dominated the Pats. 

Last year in week 18, the Bills managed to score 14 points alone against New England on kickoff returns. The Bills ended up winning 35-24 and knocking the Patriots out of playoff contention. While the Patriots have stability now, it may still take time for O'Brien and Jones to click, giving the Bills an advantage and the win. 

Record: 6-1

Week 8.) vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Thursday Night

Back in Buffalo on prime time, the Bills play host to the Buccaneers who no longer have Tom Brady. Instead, they will more than likely be led out by Baker Mayfield who is trying to revive his career. Mayfield has yet to lose to the Bills in his career. Would this game be his first loss to Buffalo?

The roster overall on the Bucs is solid. However, Mayfield is not Brady by any means. The Bucs will only go as far as Mayfield takes them. This game will probably be a low scoring game with the Bills picking up the win. 

Record: 7-1
