Hasnt Dalton crushed us almost every time weve played him?

Recommended Posts

Im trying to think back over the years. I just remember Dalton having some really good games against us. 

 

If this isnt a trap game, then i dont know what is.

more than not. but he's not invincible.    EJ Manuel almost beat the Bungles. 

 

Dalton is dangerous.  just keep that in mind

So have a lot of teams over nearly two decades of mediocrity.  Anything is possible, but I think McDermott has this team in a very good frame of mind - confident but very hungry.

Things change. Different team. Eli was 3-0 against us until this past game. The past is just that. The past. Cheer up it'll be our home opener the Bills will be pumped the crowd will be pumped and loud. The Bills won't lose this game.

This team is so different to try and compare anything beyond 1 years ago... and the offensive side, there's basically nothing due to personnel changes.  The last time they played Bengals was the 2017 season.

Historic stats mean nothing year to year... fans like to look back at that stuff, but any given Sunday any team can win.  Unless you're Miami....

 

Dalton has played well against us, but we have a different team now than the last time we faced off... offense and defense... He's a year older, and showing decline.  We have a QB on the rise, a stout defense, and all kinds of play makers.  I like our chances regardless of what has happened in years past.

Dalton has 4 wins vs 1 loss against the Bills. 

But none of those games have been played in 2019--a new wind of Bills competency is rustling the leaves around the CAP, and I'm not talking about AB's doctor visits either! (Check out the latest in the AB thread if you haven't heard about this one yet)

This week I believe the focus will be more on slowing down the passing game of the Bengals. They still have 2 dangerous WR's in Boyd (still love that guy for the catch and run vs Baltimore) and the speedster John Ross. Eifert is actually healthy again at the TE spot as well. Their OL is pretty decimated and they've been having issues getting anything going on the ground though. If our defense is on their game this week then we should be able to rush 4, still create pressure, and have 7 in coverage all day long. This is what I am expecting to see and I am hoping it leads to some turnovers.

Hopefully Tyler Kroft will be working with offense coordinators telling them what he knows about tendencies, etc. If he is not healthy enough to play maybe sit in booth with spotter.

John Ross can be a dangerous receiver when you don't have any burners at CB.  I like Tre White, Levi Wallace and company, but Buffalo's CBs only have average speed.  They have a very effective zone, but if there is any lapse, speed can burn them big time.

I think Cincinnati has a new coaching staff in place with a new offensive scheme.  The only thing Kroft might have insight on might be Dalton's personal tendencies, and he's been in the league long enough that most of those are pretty well known.

Well considering they haven’t been burned deep yet might suggest you are wrong

Probably for when teams have a burner one of our safeties play center fielder.

The most relevant game was 2017. 4 point loss in cinci. AJ Green torched TreD the rook. Their run D was very good. And they contained TT in the pocket, sacked 6 times 0 rushing yards. Despite all that bills were leading at the end of q3. 

 

the differences now;

 

- Allen  can attack a defense better than Tyod over the top and in the middle 

- AJ G is out

- Cinci defense is not as good.

- Bills WRs are better

- Bills D is better too

- at new era instead of Cincinnati

That's because we don't do a good job of pass rushing Dalton, or most other QBs.  If we got some pressure on him, Dalton would look like a bad QB.

I think Dalton is a good QB, not great, but good.  He can win you games.  A few years ago when they started 7-0, I thought they were the best team in the league.

Then he ruptured his thump in week 14 I believe.  Lost because of the fumble in the WC game.

Bengals OL is really bad. Max pressure and blitz packages all day. Mixon has been swallowed up immediately both games so far too. Don't give Dalton the chance, and he can't burn us.

I really like Dalton but I have a feeling he is not going to get the same reception he got last time in Buffalo.
