Bills top ranked pass defense 2018

larryflower37 : 9/11/2019 8:59 am
Found it interesting that the Bills had the top ranked pass defense last season.
Hopefully this is the game we get a healthy dose of Barkley early and often.

They might have the match up with poyer and Hyde to neutralize Engram .

I know everyone penciled this in as a win but this is going to be a dog fight.

Anyone who has any game 'penciled in for a win'

hasn't been paying attention. I don't think Josh Allen is all that good, but any QB will have good numbers when he has all day to throw.
The only penciling in of a win

is happening on the Bills side. It's up to use to pull off an upset. Not the other way around.
I'm still concerned

more with the defense. John Brown abd our old buddy Cole Beasley will be running circles around our confused, overmatched secondary!
Penciled in a win?

Not sure who is doing that. Personally, I'll actually be somewhat shocked if we win this game.
I havenít penciled anything in

I noticed they were #15 in rushing yards allowed, 115 per game (155 per game last 3 weeks).

I agree, less of Eli, more of Saquon.

As for our defense.....🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

Anyone have any Giants opponent penciled in as a win? Especially with the Giants 8-24 record over the past two seasons, and from a broader perspective, their record since 2013?

I'm sure Miami Dolphins fans look at the Giants now and say "hey, the might be our opportunity to get one win this year."
EE is going to have a tough outing  
BigBlueDownTheShore : 9/11/2019 11:14 am : link
Edmunds can split out wide and cover WRs if they need him too. I see him being matched up on EE for the majority of the game if we split him out wide.
Interesting

So let's not hand off to Saquon. - Pat Shermer


This was known before the season...  
Dan in the Springs : 9/11/2019 12:00 pm : link
but you are correct, there have been countless prediction threads, articles, opinions, etc. marking this down as a win.

I always found it stunning how many had this down as not just a win, but an "easy win".

Now that the Giants looked ugly in Dallas, there's been a major shift in prediction, but it's certainly true that prior to week 1 many NFL prognosticators had this down as a win.
Why is this surprising? They have a good defense, Edmunds is

A fucking monster. The offense is explosive as well. Anyone thinking this is a cake walk is mistaken. Actually if we pull out a win I think we can start thinking a 8-8 season which is what most of us thought going in.
Don't forget: the Bills also have Davis Webb  
CT Charlie : 9/11/2019 12:16 pm : link
to reveal all our schemes! Seriously, we'll lose unless our O-line can generate a surge for Saquon: 3yds-5yds-3yds has to be automatic.
Bills Defense is Really Good  
armstead98 : 9/11/2019 12:21 pm : link
I think the most important metric is yards per play and last year they were third in the league. This year (yes, only one week) they're first.

It's safe to expect that the Giants are going to have trouble moving the ball.
Yes, but.  
CT Charlie : 9/11/2019 1:02 pm : link
Yards per play is important, but because passing plays typically gain more yards than running plays (except in our offense lately...) A team that's tops at defending the pass could still be relatively weak against the run and overall have a very stingy combined average.
Iím expecting  
darren in pdx : 9/11/2019 1:05 pm : link
this game to be a loss for the Giants. Until the defense starts to play like a unit they arenít going to win any games. Hopefully it was just week one NFL sloppiness.

There were GMEN posters in here with high expectations for this team to start the year. Further, we're playing at home -- and they mention how easy the schedule is. You can infer for anyone who had high expectations for this team that they had penciled in a win here.
They must be nervous about stopping Latimer and Fowler.

Letís just not wear out Barkley...  
trueblueinpw : 9/12/2019 6:55 am : link
Especially against such a good pass defense. Probably a good idea to either sit Barkley altogether, so we can use him next season when Jones is starting and weíre really good, or at least limit his touches to 10 or 11 at the most. And since the Bills have such a good pass defense theyíll never expect us to throw the ball 30 or 40 times. Letís fool Ďem good and pass it! Probably want to roll Eli out of the pocket a lot too leverage his elusiveness. If the passing game is shut down, we can always give the ball to the full back in critical spots.
