It looked like the Buffalo Bills figured their shit out because the team from Jags week was long gone. Blowing out the Jets was exactly what they needed to get that confidence back. We love to see it.
Previously on Bills vs. Colts (Wild Card Weekend, 2020 Season)
The first playoff win in 25 years? Who could ever forget. This was a game for the ages, the Bills didn’t play with the vigor and mentality they did throughout the season. But, they did make up for that awful Hail Murray, with Hyde batting down a last ditch effort by Rivers. An excellent finish.
Hopefully, there’s no need for heroics in this regular season game.
Prediction #1: Secondary Keeps on Churning
The Bills secondary has been nothing short of elite. So far this season, the Bills have 15 INTs from nine different players (even the special teamers got involved). They also lead the league with 24 total takeaways.
Hyde, Poyer, and Co. will continue on this path and notch at least another two takeaways (one INT) against the Colts. So far, Wentz has only thrown three INTs, but I have more faith in our guys.
Prediction #2: Less than 3 TDs allowed
Fun fact of the day: The Bills have only allowed 13 total touchdowns throughout the season so far, with six of them passing. On the other hand, the Colts have allowed the most passing TDs with 23.
With the way the Buffalo Bills defense is playing, they won’t allow more than three total touchdowns. They’ve been electric so far and it’s only going to continue.
Prediction #3: Matt Breida, a multifunctional weapon
Moss has strength and Singletary has form, but Breida is a combination of both. Last week, he showed exactly why he belongs on the field. With his 9.3 average rushing yards and his 7.3 average recieving yards, Breida is a force on the ground and yet another target for Allen in the slot. He can do it all.
And do it all he shall on Sunday against the Colts. I see no reason why he should be inactive this week. I’m sure McDermott, in all his wisdom, will find a way to keep this stud in the lineup. And Breida will repay him with a TD or two.
The Bills will face a challenge here, but mostly against themselves. This team has proven they can go all the way, they just need to keep at it.
They will get a two touchdown lead at the half, with the Colts never closing the gap. Bills come out on top with another blowout.
