No game in OP on Sunday, it’s been moved to Ford Field in Detroit given the forecasted snow. This is the first time since 2014 that a game has been moved due to a weather storm in Buffalo. Now, the Bills will play two games at Ford Field in a five day span with the Bills/Lions game on Thanksgiving Day at 12:30pm.
But first, the Browns…
For Josh Allen, it’s the sudden rash of throws to the wrong team near the end zone at the worst possible times. The heartbreaking 33-30 OT loss to the Vikings left the Bills at 6-3 and behind both the Dolphins, idle this week, and the Jets, who are at New England.
The Browns are a running team, and they have the Oline to do it, with Nick Chubb leading the way. The former Georgia star averages 5.6 per carry and needs under 100 Sunday to go over 1,000 yards. He also has 11 TD’s. Jacoby Brissett is the qb placeholder Deshaun Watson, still under suspension, and he’s a journeyman at best.
With Allen’s recent slump and coming off an elbow injury to defy the experts by playing last week, will OC Ken Dorsey dial it back a bit?
Zero chance of that. Allen is gonna do what he’s gonna do. He went through a light workout Wednesday and is expected to be full go against the Browns. A couple players, including LB Matt Milano, missed practice with non-Covid illness but should play.
Allen is obviously the key to the Bills aspirations, which remain high despite this rough stretch, which they also went through a year ago. Allen’s size and mobility will be a definite factor in this game, as much as we all cringe to see #17 flying down the field always moments away from a crushing hit of some kind.
The Bills are 8 point favorites over the Browns, and no matter what the weather, I think the Bills will be the hungrier team.
Allen is taking a lot of national and local hits for his turnover fest of the past 3 weeks, and the criticism if fair for the most part. The Bills are paying him to be better, and he will be no matter what the weather this Sunday.
Bills win 23-13.
