I don’t think our defensive front 7 is physical enough to win this game.  Roman runs a power blocking scheme that will neutralize the speed of our linebackers.  This game will be won between the tackles.  I hope I’m wrong!

i'm not gonna pretend to know how to stop the ravens at this point. I think yesterday is about as good as somebody could play them and they still got to 20..... but aren't our athletic coverage LB's a positive matchup vs their te's?

very possible.  I think id sell out to stop the rushing attack and take my chances that lamar cant make enough throws to win the game.  either way were going to need allen and the offense to put up points

I like that. Maybe get Luiget in there too. 
 

Johnson.   Shaq: Luiget: Star: Philips: Oliver.   White

 

                       Hughes: Edmunds: Milano

 

                                        Hyde.

Gosh I forgot all about that angle to the game. So much has changed for both teams offenses. Was Roman the OC for that game? I know Flacco was the QB. The offensive philosophy was more traditional. 
how much carryover is there really?

Most of the Bills D is still intact from that game (except for two new starters), but Allen and Dawkins would be the only ones from offense. Not sure about the Ravens. I'm sure the guys on defense, especially the coaches remember that game and hopefully will look for some measure of redemption from the horrific showing to start the 2018 season.

My concern for our defense is Mark Ingram and the Baltimore run orientated Oline.. I remember how he, as a New Orleans Saint, ran all over us a couple years ago. Baltimore has an Oline built for the power run. Without a doubt a great challenge for our "D".

I think they'd hold their own, but I also think that it's a complicated matter. You have to take away their ability to get easy yards on the ground first. I have confidence in the defensive staff's ability to confuse the QB post-snap, but they also need their athletes at LB to be available to chase down Lamar when things break down and he tries to create.

True that my friend.

 

I think safety play will be super critical (as always).

They may anyway. I would focus on Andrews first and take my chances with Ingram. The 'backers and safeties will have to bring their 'A' game.

jimmy g fumbled on his own 23 so basically gifted the ravens 7 points. that cost the game it would seem. you could say the niners d really held lamar to 13 points so they did a very good job in containing him.

the line at draftkings has moved to Baltimore -4.5

There's no way the public is on buffalo. That means there is sharp money coming in on the bills and driving the line down.

Tough tough assignment.  If there is a chance, we need to bang Ingram at the line of scrimmage or behind it with o-line play.  Oliver and Phillips will have their hands full.  Must take good angles to Jackson when he runs outside the tackles.  Must run the ball and slow the game down.  It's possible- anything is,  but the Ravens are monsters right now.

i think we run base D, but do a lot of blitzing and delay blitzing.  we obviously have to stop the big play, but just forcing a negative play and/or penalty early on a drive will result in some punts.  our d, at least in principal, is set up to force long drives, which is what the ravens do well.  we just need to make some plays behind the line to force 3rd and long and then we will get some wins.

 

on O, we have to keep doing what we have been doing.  use the raven's aggressiveness against them and get to the edge or hit the quick passes for yac.  i do think we will be able to go over the top once they start biting on the underneath stuff too.

 

super hard match up, but on paper at least we have our plan cut out for us.  we just need not to get blown off the ball.

A tough challenge for sure.  If the Bills don't beat the Ravens, they are likely to win out and clinch homefield.

 

On the other hand, the Patriots have their biggest challenge this week other than our game in the Chiefs.  Here's to hoping the Chiefs win!

 

If the Bills win out - they'd have a shot at home field - when is the last time that was possible this late in the season?  Crazy.

 

Ravens - tough, but I'm not giving up on our guys.  AND - it's at home.  That's a plus for sure.

Patriots - tough, but they not only look beatable - they've been beaten.  Pulling for the Chiefs to knock them down 1 more peg.

Steelers - on the road, but this season is not the same as years past.  Definitely winnable

Jets - Hate this game.  It has trap written all over it...  It also has the potential to be important.

 

The Bills are peaking at the right time - and now they can showcase what they are capable of.

 

Go Bills!

This could be totally stupid because I’m not an NFL defensive coordinator, but, here goes...

 

Id clog the line and keep everyone in their lanes. I’m talking 4 or 5 linemen in the gaps, 2 or 3 LBs playing off the line and crashing, a safety in the middle and two DBs. The second it’s apparent it’s not a run, drop the LBs, a lineman, and clog up the middle passing lanes. Make Jackson stay and throw to the sidelines or in really tight windows. 
 

 

how quickly can the linemen and LBs drop.....the WRs will be past them before they can drop in to the passing lanes

I think we should just forfeit this game. Nobody can beat the all powerful ravens.

 

Screw that, go out there and punch them in the face! See how well they take it, then hit them again! 

 

Hell yeah!!!!!

Go Bills!!!!!!

The formula for Buffalo is pretty simple:

 

1. No turnovers

2. Limit penalties (one of the few negatives of the season up to this point)

3. Run the ball consistently

 

Do these 3 things, and the Bills are in the game late at minimum.
