Why aren't they undefeated then?

 

According to that guy they made a bunch of personnel changes on defense after the Cleveland game, which shored things up. Haven't lost since then - hence his stance.

But their offense should have still been "unstoppable" early in the year. Apparently it wasn't. Pittsburgh was a close games. Cincy was a close game.

 

They've been on a nice run, but they are beatable just like any other team.

Maybe their offense has evolved like our own? I dunno, haven't watched the Ravens much myself. And of course they are beatable. That's what the other poster and I were getting after...the Ravens podcast host couldn't say anything outside of gushing over the team. It was a bit of an eye roll. 

 

FYI, he's quoting a famous movie...

 

"Fat, drunk, and stupid is no way to go through life, son."

I agree with you.

50/50

49.5/49.5? A tie would be interesting.

The majority picking under 50%. The same group of people who would have argued the same about the Cowboys, and were seriously worried about the Broncos. Bills fans gonna Bills fan.

 

The question is slightly deceptive. If it’s what percentage that we have a chance- 100%. If it’s percentage/confidence level that we will win, I’m at 50%.

I'd argue having a 35-49% chance in a game against an absurdly hot team is not particularly negative, and I tend to get called out as an overly positive fan and it sounds about right to me. Plus, as different as this season has been, it's still hard to shake the feeling, as illogical and irrelevant as it is, that this is the kind of game where we expect a painful loss -- even coming, as it does, on the heels of an overwhelming and convincing win in the ultimate kind of game the Bills usually lose. 

 

That said, there are quite a few reasons to believe the Bills have a better chance than we think in this game:

- Bills are playing on 10 days rest

- Game is in New Era Field

- Bills are arguably the second hottest team in the NFL right now and perhaps their mojo is even more powerful than the Ravens'

- In the past 3 games, the Bills are just the sort of team that could stop a rolling team like the Ravens: an offense coming together and a disruptive, dynamic, hard-hitting, disciplined defense. 

- Overall, they are clearly one of the three high-level defenses (with SF & NE) and outside of a few anomalies they are a young defense, especially in their three potential (well, one is pretty much there) superstars, and there's some reason to believe their ceiling is much higher than it has been so far, and if there is ever a game where a defense could make a statement, this is it.

A team that has 1 more win than us.  Besides, I would argue that how hot they have been is a potential downfall for them. 

 

I’m not saying we will win, but this board leans negative (probably rightfully so due to history) and there’s really no reason this isn’t a completely competitive matchup from the outset. The 7-4 Texans just beat the 10-1 patriots. It’s all relative.

It's all about red zone defense. If we hold them to a few FG's and they miss one or two, we can pull this out.  If the Bills win, I see a 27-23 game. If the Ravens win I see a 38-27 kind of game.  Lamar will get his yards. We just have to contain him in the red zone and make them drive long fields. 

Tucker NEVER misses. That will be all 😌

3 extra days + our Offense is on the ascent = 60%

 

My estimate is 33%.   However, if we do win it will be because of these two things.

To be a nerd, it's a poorly constructed poll. 4 of the 6 options suggest a tie or loss.

Yeah give me 100% all by itself.  I'd still pick it.  

 

I'm not putting 5k down but I will be betting Bills money line more money than I want my wife to know about (although even a dollar is more than she likes lol)

I went 50%. The Bills are a tough matchup for Baltimore IMO. 

You are correct..in fact, its always theoretically 50/50.  No amount of analytics can change that in this particular game imho.

Being that they are underestimating us, I’m thinking 60% 

 

Go Bills!!!

Not really. I wasn't nearly as worried about the Cowboys and picked the Bills to win that game. 

 

This is the first time this year that I've picked the Bills' opponent to win.

We are at home, with a defensive minded coach, and fast linebackers. Let's remember Lamar is still young. Granted they are better than the cowboys who supposedly had the best offense in the league. But we manhandled them in Dallas! If those same bills come to play. This is at least a 50/50 split.

I would give the Bills a 40% chance of winning. At home with a quality defense you have a 40% chance no matter who you play. Baltimore is playing as good as anyone in the league and this is a big test for the Bills. Lamar Jackson is a tough matchup as DC's are still trying to find a way to slow him and this offense down. Hopefully McD comes up with something that slows him down and Josh get the offense going with consistency.
