To the dismay of many Buffalo Bills fans, the Denver Broncos travel to Buffalo, N.Y.  for a 1 p.m. game on Sunday. The Bills are coming off of an embarrassing loss against the Carolina Panthers, where they only scored three points, to the Panthers nine. The Broncos on the other hand absolutely smashed the Dallas Cowboys to pieces, winning 42-17 in a very lopsided game.

According to, both the general public and the experts agree that the Broncos with beat the Bills. Some people may argue that more than 78% of people should have voted against the Bills due to their offensive woes this past Sunday.

Three points, is just sad for a team with so much talent on the offensive side of the ball.

The Broncos have a feared-defense. They may be tied for 13th in points against, but that may as well be a mute point. Von Miller has two sacks, but quarterbacks are very aware of his pass rushing ability and Brandon Marshall is a solid linebacker that makes punishing tackles in the secondary. Not to mention that the Broncos have one of the most feared defensive backs in the league.

Broncos’ corners Aqib Talib and Chris Harris Jr. are hands down two of the best in the league right now. The Broncos will be coming for the Bills quarterback and backfield very aggressively.

The Bills; however, are not completely helpless. The Bills do have a strong defense that has allowed less points than the Broncos’ defense. The Bills also have a strong rushing attack and a dual-threat quarterback in Tyrod Taylor. Taylor is arguably one of the fastest quarterbacks in the league, but he does struggle under pressure, which the Broncos will undeniably bring.

LeSean McCoy is shifty and, though, he is closing in on 30=years-old, he has shown that there is still a lot of life left in his legs. The Bills also have Mike Tolbert in the backfield. He can play fullback or running back and is known for his bruising running-style. If McCoy can’t use his speed and quickness to create space, Tolbert could defiantly punch hole in the defense.

The left side of the Bills offensive line is solid. Richie Incognito and Cordy Glenn are still amongst the best in their positions, but John Miller and Jordan Mills will have their hands full on the right side of the line. McCoy and Tolbert will most likely will have to help protect in the passing game in order to slow down the Broncos blitzes.

The Bills are lacking in wide receiver depth as well. Rookie Zay Jones has seen light action and has struggled to get off the line in some cases. Jordan Mathews is a solid wide receiver, but he is not game-breaking by any sense of the meaning. The Bills do have a solid tight end in Charles Clay that can help in the passing game, being a dependable target over the middle.

The Broncos have two very talented receivers in Emmanuel Sanders and Demaryius Thomas. Bills’ corners Tre’Davious White and E.J. Gaines will have their hands full.  Strong Safety Micah Hyde may have to help cover them with free safety Jordan Poyer floating over the top to manage the deep ball.

The key in the passing game for the Bills will have to undoubtedly be to pressure Broncos’ quarterback Trevor Siemian into mistakes. The Bills’ defensive line can defiantly get the job done with its talent, but the secondary with defiantly have to hold long enough for line to get there.

Overall, the Broncos should win the game with relative ease. As long as they continue to run the ball effectively and bottle up the Bills’ backfield, the Broncos should walk away with the victory. The Bills could pull an upset if the offense comes to play in an unprecedented manner, but that seems unlikely at this point in season that that will happen.
