Bills QB Josh Allen is starting to show he can elevate his game against poor defensive teams. Josh must continue to be accurate and improve against the best defensive teams in the league. It’s obvious he has come a long way in three short years in accuracy and self confidence, allowing him to use the techniques taught to him. His footwork and throwing motion have changed for the better and must continue once pressure is put on him.
The Seahawks did not put much pressure at all or cover Bills receivers throughout the game.It was the worst defense I’ve ever seen from a 6 – 1 team. The good news is the Bills continue to play suspect defensive teams in the coming weeks and the Pittsburgh Steelers, New England Patriots and Miami Dolphins are the only teams left on schedule that have dominating defenses.
The Bills will have an opportunity to rack up several wins in the coming weeks. Bills offensive lineman Jon Feliciano is a difference maker on the line and hopefully depth won’t become a problem since the sudden release of Quinton Spain. Bills Defensive Coordinator Leslie Frazier had his unit gamble more by using various blitz packages forcing Seahawks QB Russell Wilson to get rid of the ball quickly and hit him an NFL season high 16 times. That led to turnovers and Tre Davis White getting the first interception of season and a forced fumble by Jerry Hughes led to a White recovery. The Bills defense must force their will on upcoming opponents which can lead to more turnovers.
Bills safety Jordan Poyer had a very strong game including his first interception of the season. The Bills embattled line backer AJ Klein had two sacks and one of them was a strip sack leading to a Bills field goal. The Bills have several veteran players over 30 years old on defense and they can be more reliable because they know their assignments better in a very aggressive defensive scheme.
This could bode well for them as the Bills face quick throwing Kyler Murray to future Hall of Famer Larry Fitzgerald, and DeAndre Hopkins will be a formidable challenge for them in the desert. I see Bills defense being able to slow them down, while Josh Allen and his crew will have time to make plays; especially with Rochester, NY native and Arizona Cardinals best pass rusher Chandler Jones done for the season with a torn pectoral muscle. As I’ve said before, today’s football players are too bulked up with muscles and less body fat. These guys need more body fat instead of mostly muscles, and this is why so many players are getting torn biceps and pectoral muscles almost completely torn off the bone. Yes, it’s a very painful injury that you really can’t play with and Bills outside linebacker Matt Milano is another example of this injury. You can still play at a high level without massive muscles. Did anyone see Seahawks receiver D.K. Metcalf warming up before game; massive muscles looking like a Superhero! We will see with so many muscle injuries , whether or not training regimens might be more of a balance between muscles and body fat.
I see the Bills beating a depleted secondary of Arizona Cardinals 31 – 24. I see both teams having an outstanding offensive attack; with the Bills defense starting out getting key turnovers which might be enough to carry them to the playoffs and becoming a serious contender.
