Week 3: Bills (-6) v Bengals

While you do have a point to an extent, the NFL is a business and the number 1 objective is to win games. How many times has a BAD team derailed the Bills momentum? How many times have the Bills lost to teams they were "supposed" to beat? Although people do seem to forget that the Jets were favored. I'm a results orientated guy and the Bills won two road games to start the season. That's the bottom line. If you break it down, there is some merit to the idea that these two games don't necessarily portend great things for the team. On the flip side, they won both games. Now they have a chance to start 3-0. The Bengals are the opponent this week and I feel pretty good about our chances. I take nothing for granted, but this is yet another very winnable game. And if they handle their business, it will mean just that; they handled their business. 

 

Overall, I'm glad we're sitting here talking about how significant or insignificant starting 2-0 is for the long term. It's a much better place to be than wondering how the team is going to recover from bad losses.

This is very well put.

I had Bill's winning 31-17 last week and by a TD versus Jets. This game makes me feel uneasy and I'm not nearly as optimistic as I was for the 1st two. Not sure why. 

One thing is for sure, that house will be rocking!

 

Buffalo 34

Cincinnati 30

I find it interesting that the Bills signed Davis Webb as their practice squad QB when he played for the Jets and Giants and now the Bills have signed Curtis Akins a LB who was with Cincinnati this year. 

 

Could just be a really weird coincidence but I’m sure they are getting tips on the Bengals defense now.

I feel like Spain didn’t have a good preseason but has come on. Having said that, I do like the line you proposed. Is Ford at RG and Feliciano at LG better than Feliciano at Rg and Spain at LG? It’s close. 

I’m going to trust the Bills coaching staff over you two jokers 😏no one comes into your workplace and tells you how to flip the burgers  🍔 . Let the coaches coach and enjoy being 2-0.

Also, Byron Marshall played for both WAS and PHI (couple years back).  Vincent Taylor played for MIA.  Likely a coincidence.

Always nice to be put down by someone with poor grammar.

Sorry for the grammar. Doesn’t change the narrative of your statement. You don’t make a lot of sense with your take. Sorry 😐

I've been a Bills fan since the "old rockpile" days. This team just feels different to me. 3-0! it will happen!

I'm thrilled they won 2 road games as well. It's a great start and I totally agree with your points. That said, the Bills were outscored 78-23 in their first two games last year. They went to Minnesota, a playoff team in 2017 who was 1-0-1 coming in and  totally outplayed them. It's the NFL. They are one lack of focus and effort or bad luck from a bad loss. 2-1 with New England coming in and a tough road game in Tennessee does not look nearly as good as 3-0 and could change in a major way the perceptions we have of the 2-0 start.

Bills 36 Bengals 27...I think this game is a blow out and the Bengals add 10 points in garbage time to make it seem closer than it was.  They will tee off on Dalton. Over under is  3 false starts. Take the over.

Good analogy with the Vikes game.  Forgot about that.  Don’t be the Vikes.  That game may have derailed their season.

 

The Bengals game is a must win.  We penciled this in as win in the path to get 10 wins.   If we go 3 - 0 we are ahead of schedule and gives us more cushion.

So the two games we've won don't prove anything, but one loss will.  And even if we win (and are 3 - 0), it doesn't show that we're good.  Makes a TON of sense...

 

:beer: 

 

Finally you are starting to get it.

 

There are only two different outcomes for losers (which "Negifans" imagine the Bills to be) -  1. a LOSS  or   2. Not a LOSS 😜 🤪

 

So to these "Negifans" the Bills have two Not Loses.

 

BTW, "Negifan's" fear disappointment so their main objective is to NEVER get their hopes up!

Optimism high for 2-0 Bills, who face 0-2 Bengals

 

The Buffalo Bills are seeking their first 3-0 start in eight years when they host the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday.

 

Buffalo started the campaign with road wins over the New York Jets and New York Giants, and optimism is blooming as the Bills begin a stretch of hosting five of six games in Western New York.

"Well, we understand the energy of the stadium is going to be really high on Sunday," Bills quarterback Josh Allen told reporters. "We have to be able to kind of weather that and understand and play within ourselves. Coach (Sean McDermott) told us it's not where we play, it's how we play. We're going to take that to heart."

 

The Bills will be meeting a desperate team in the Bengals (0-2) ......

players get bounced around practice squads often. I think teams rely on scouting and film instead of this

If we lose, it will be because we didn't score. I don't think our defense will allow more than 17 points.

 

It would be nice to see is score first for once and lead the whole way.
