Buffalo Bills News
Well what should we talk about first the fact that the Bills won another preseason game or Christian Wade breaking another big gain. This is just the tip of the iceberg as the Buffalo Bills went to North Carolina and spanked the Carolina Panthers 27-14. The Josh Allen to Cole Beasley connection look pretty good again this week has Josh Allen completed nine of 11 passes for 102 yards. Cole Beasley caught five passes for 41 yards and Matt Barkley is looking really good with the second team as he completed 10 of 11 passes and a nice TD pass to Duke Williams. Christian “Big Gain” Wade for the second straight preseason game impressed as he almost took a screen pass to the house. The defense also look pretty well as Kevin Johnson had a pick-six. Ed Oliver looks like a sure lock in for Week One starter.
The run defense could be a little better though and the Bills will need to cut down on those penalties. EJ Gaines has also been released from the bills so it will be important for the other cornerbacks to step up for that nickel or dime position. This Friday, The bills will face the Detroit Lions. What will we see from the Buffalo Bills this week? I look for the bills offense to be more fluent. The bills run defense needs to tighten up. The Special Teams will need to be better and The Bills will definitely need to cut down on the penalties. Will Tyree Jackson and Zay Jones step up this week? Who will stand out on defense against the Lions?
Buffalo Bisons Baseball
Can You Feel The Herd coming as they are one game out of first place in their division? Andy Burns & the Bisons are making a serious run to the MILB Playoffs. This accomplishment would definitely be very exciting for the 716 community as the Bisons look to break the playoff drought that has lasted since 2005. Will the Bisons be in first place by the weeks end? The Bisons will face the Rochester Red Wings for the next 4 games.
