Will Dalton get a standing O when he gets introduced?

I doubt it. That was a long time ago now. He got one when they were there last year in preseason.

Hope Singletary is good to go!

I don't like the fact that he isn't the feature RB.  That said, if it's better to rest him, do it, would rather have him at or near 100% for the Pats game.

I put zero stock into the historical context between these two teams in their matchups in recent years. This Bills team is much better built and coached than they were in recent matchups, and the Bengals are not as talented and well coaches as they were in those matchups. Marvin Lewis is gone, and say what you will about his postseason record, he was a pretty good coach, and the continuity they had with his long tenure there is gone. The Bengals still have a few good pieces, but there's a lot of newness there, which should lead to inconsistency early on in tbe process. They looked atrocious yesterday on both sides of the ball, and I wouldn't be surprised if the Bills worked in some wide 9 on defense if the Bengals need to play catch up late, to mimic some of what the 49ers had success with. 

 

I never look at Bills games and think "easy win" (except for against Miami this year), but I'm actually more confident about a win this week than I was going into the Giants game. Green may not play, with a division matchup with Pittsburgh coming in week 4, and if he does, he won't be 100%. 

 

I see Bills -7 by Sunday, but fail to cover. 26-20 Bills

This game actually worries me.

 

Cinci is really talented and I think we have a hard time in this one

Being that all games are must win games, I suspect SM will keep the guys humble and hungry. Never ever believe your own press clippings. Be alert, no lapses in concentration, protect the ball, catch the ball, win in the trenches, we win.

 

Go Bills!!!

Bills have to clean up the stupid penalties. It's gonna be the difference between winning and losing against the good teams.

It's also a trap game with the Pats looming on the horizon.  However, MCd is good at keeping them focused, and the Offense is getting better each week.

Bengals fans dont seem too confident.  Went to check out their forums and a lot of them are saying 30-10 buffalo.  I dont think we will blow them out but I do expect a hard fought win for the Bills.  The Bengals always play us tough so here's to hoping we can pull out a win.

No they're not. You're concerned by choice.

 

 

To be fair, so am I.

 

I am heartily encouraged by what I have seen so far, and the Bills should take care if business at home without too much issue. However, they are still young, and still going through growing pains so I don't think that the team, or the fans, should take anyone lightly. (Thankfully McDermott seems to be doing just that). I love the young talent we have picked up in the past few drafts and our O-line, but it's going to take time before they fully gel this season. (Hopefully down the stretch in time for December and January)

 

I like the way we match up, but I have been overconfident before. Let's get that win and and go for 3-0!

See the post above yours.

 

Their defense is an atrocity

Any team can lose on any weekend. That’s life in the NFL. I’ll always be a little nervous about each game, maybe until the Bills look like the 90s bills or when they play the dolphins.

That, and the point differential.

I saw a clown on TV today talking about how Buffalo struggles with Cincinnati. Really? Wings and beef on weck trump that crappy chili!  (I went to school in Cincy, I know!) The coaches, QB’s and half of the entire team changes every single year! How could a loss a few years ago in the rain on the road have anything to do with our game next week???  

 

PS - We won the tailgate that year, largely thanks to @Seasons1992 

 

Go Bills! 

 

Wendy's Chili is better than Skyline chili.  It's such a disappointment.  Weak flavor,  etc.

And again I'll say that I like the matchup and think that we should take care of business.

 

My only caveat is that because so many of our most talented players are young, and that we are still forging our identity, that we can't take any team for granted. Even one we should gouge.

 

I am incredibly optimistic about this team, and I think that this might be the closest we've been to legitimately challenging the Pats for the division in close to two decades, but I am strapped in for some bumps and bruises along the way.

I don’t believe he is close yet. Was still in a walking boot a few days ago. 

 

he's out of the boot and running on a treadmill now.  I think I saw 1-3 weeks out, but not back for this game.  

 

Ross III is good.  The offense is decently balanced (on paper), but whatever San Fran did to them we need to replicate.  Hopefully the DL can force Dalton into some bad throws.
