The Bills are back! Last week showed the best of Buffalo Bills football all around. Josh Allen had five total touchdowns, Sanders proved why he was a good offseason acquisition, and the defense balled out.
Whilst riding on this high, the Texans travel to One Bills Drive, bringing with them the opportunity for revenge.

Does it even need to be said? That game hurt. But on Sunday, the Bills have the chance to correct history and pull off the win.
Prediction #1: Sanders and Knox with TDs
I was firmly in the belief that starting Sanders over Davis and releasing Hollister in favor of Knox was a huge mistake. I gladly admit I was wrong. Most QBs have one or two reliable targets, Josh Allen has four. These guys have proven that in the last couple of weeks.
As such, if you’re lucky enough to have these Bills on your fantasy rosters, start them. They’ll each have a TD and some nice yardage.
Prediction #2: Allen goes back-to-back
Josh Allen officially put all those doubts to rest. He came out looking very much like the MVP we all know him to be. The decisions he made out there were great. I especially loved how he has learned to throw the ball away under pressure rather than losing the yardage on a sack.
I have a renewed faith in him. He’ll go a second week with four or more TDs and over 350 passing yards. He’ll show us what he can do on the ground too; getting a few rushing yards tallied onto his stats.
Prediction #3: Zero Sacks
The Bills offensive line looks much more improved than that awful performance vs. the Steelers. They didn’t allow a single sack vs. Washington. Even more impressive, they saw no penalties.
Like Allen, they’ll go back-to-back no sacks allowed and no penalties. With a mobile QB and mediocre defensive line, this shouldn’t be too much of a challenge.
I believe the Buffalo Bills win handsomely in this matchup. They score at least six TDs, two of which come before the half; one may even come from Trubisky towards the end of the 4th quarter. Bills will be 3-1, a nice confidence boost before facing the newly humbled Chiefs in Week 5.
