Following a spectacular regular season, the Bills have continued their momentum into the playoffs. They now get ready to play in this year’s Super Bowl. It’s been a special season in Western New York, as the Bills have been one of the best teams in football all season. All that stands in the way between the Bills and a Super Bowl ring are the New Orleans Saints. Here are the keys to Sunday’s game.
Winston’s big season
One of the biggest storylines of 2020 has been the improved play of former first overall pick Jameis Winston. Winston was up and down during his time in Tampa Bay, showing off his high ceiling while also struggling to not throw to the other team. In New Orleans Winston has been dominant, throwing for over 4,000 yards, 42 touchdowns, and just seven interceptions. The Bills will have to be ready for Winston, who’s playing with a ton of confidence right now.
Stop Alvin Kamara
The man who makes it all happen for the Saints in Running Back Alvin Kamara. He’s been electric this season, accounting for over 1,800 yards from scrimmage and 13 total touchdowns. He’s been one of the best running backs in football over the years and has had arguably his best season yet. The Bills defense will have to be ready for Kamara on Sunday.
Both teams have amongst the best defensive lines in football, which means that both offensive lines will have to be ready. As the saying goes, football is won in the trenches, and the team that can hold up on the offensive line the best will likely win. Both of these defensive lines will get their plays in, but can the offensive lines punch back?
Josh Allen’s biggest moment yet
This will be a monumental moment in Josh Allen’s young career. Is he ready to be a Super Bowl champion? Will the lights be too bright? He has risen to the occasion throughout his time in Buffalo and had played his best with the games mean the most. This is a different animal. If he can play a strong game, whether win or lose, he can show the whole country that he is indeed an elite quarterback.
