That's a really ugly injury report, but as long we don't see Josh Allen's name on it, the Bills should be OK.  I have to believe Knox and Morse will play since both re-entered the game on Monday after sustaining their injuries.  Oliver being out again is a bit of a surprise...


I want to believe that Poyer plays too.

Effff-  so do we start Settle (if he even plays) next to Daquon and have Bryant and Brewer rotate in?  The only 3T of the 4 is Brewer.  I assume we’ll  play Rousseau/Basham at the 3T on obvious passing downs.  

losing Ed and Phillips really hurts

The Bills are really short handed. If we lose, we lose. It’s not a referendum on the team or the ultimate goal. Fortunately this isn’t college football where you need to win damn near every game in impressive fashion to make the playoffs. 

It's certainly a worry that we will have reserves and rookies to defend their WRs.

 

Especially with half the DLine potentially out.

 

I'm concerned. But agree that it will do little to define our likely outcome this season.

 

At least we should have all the injured lads coming back over the next few weeks fairly rested. Might be good later down the line.

Ugh, it is like I post one thing, and it's like "what about this", I post another and it is "what about that". You are quoting my response to a poster who claimed I didn't address scheme properly in my previous post. 

Holistically, both scheme and personnel matter. That is a given. Clearly we have a deficiency in the backfield. Also a given. The Dolphins are a bit of an issue with match ups at the moment, obviously. 

But to answer your question, I trust Josh to be able to put up 40 against Miami if he absolutely has to. So I start there and work back. In a game where Buffalo puts up say, 35 points, do I think Miami matches? No, that would involve a high volume, stretch the field passing attack. And in that scenario I trust our front 7 to allow less than 35 points. Daquan Jones and Von Miller are both 10th and 2nd in the league in pass rush win rate. If the Dolphins want to air it out, I think the DL cover a lot of deficiencies. If they want to dink and dunk, they won't be able to keep up on the scoreboard. 

I think this is a more than fair post. 👍

Schedule after the Packers game is a joke. Even if we go 3-2 (with a win over the chiefs) the next 5 games we are in good shape. 

 

With that said, I still think we win by a TD+ on Sunday.

The Buffalo Bills fans don't need to worry about that.  Sean McDermott, Leslie Frazier and the rest of the staff get paid for doing it.

They are pretty, pretty good at it.  If their planned scheme is lacking in one area, I'm sure they will have a "plan B" to minimize the effects.

 

This happens every game.  Have you noticed that a lot of teams do relatively well on their first drive against the Bills?

It takes some plays for a defense to decipher what the offense is attempting to do.  Once the kickoff happens, we all will

see how it unfolds.

 

The injuries are here, and we will see what the staff has planned.  I'm going to just add what I read from 100s of posts last week.

How are the Bills going to stop Henry?  Well, they did to the tune of 1.9 yards per carry.

Nice post. I'm just fearful the injuries combined with Miami's offense might land the Bills a little short. Allen is what really gives me the greatest hope for a win not so much the coaching staff.

Miami's offense and Tua have looked like hot garbage for 7/8 of the season......

The Bills strategy on deep passing will not change a bit nor will be hampered at all by missing Hyde.  This game will be won by the Bills by pressuring Tua and not allowing him to set up and release the ball quickly.  That is his game. As far as him standing in the pocket long enough to hit deep balls on the Bills - forget it.  The Bills front is far better than the Miami OL.  They will not be able to run.  Tua is not good when playing on the move.  The Bills front four will dominate, as will their linebackers.  Benford and Elam are very good, as is Taron Johnson.  

 

The fact is is that Miami has not played a defense nearly as good as the Bills, even without Jackson and Hyde.  I give Tua some credit for his performance last week, but the Ravens are not in the Bills class.  I am so sick of this chicken little crap and the canonization if Tua based on one good quarter of football, against a mediocre team.  

 

As as far as the Bills offense against the Miami D, not even a fair fight.  The Bills are deeper and better coached and have by far the better QB.  Doogie Howser,  Head Coach,  is in for a rude awakening.  

 

 

Your logic is sound and valid with lots of merit. We will soon see whose version of how the game goes is correct. Would very much like to see your version over mine.

It takes a team.  It's going to be a big gut check for the guys who are needed to step up.  Offense needs to play good ball.

What offense are you talking about the one that played for 7 quarters or the offense that played for 1 quarter?
