I'll never pick the Bill to beat the Pats with Brady. That being said, Lewis and Edelman combined for 247 yards against us in Week 2. Their line is also banged up. This is our best chance in some time to take them down in a meaningful game. Likely doesn't happen, but, they got a shot.
He'll be fine. He's mobile, not a running QB. Watch our other games, you'd understand. The Jets defense is really good, and the Bills O had no good answers for all the blitzing. Made Taylor scramble more than he's had to all year. Luckily we had a nice day rushing the ball and got some turnovers. Taylor has been really good for us, 5-2 with him starting is the only stat line I care about right now. If they keep leading the league in rushing, we won't need him to throw 35+ times a game, but he could. Unless you have Brady/Rodgers when your QB is throwing that much, it's generally not a good thing. You're learning that with Fitz, something we knew all too much about. It's just gonna get worse.
Eh.....I really don't care at all and had forgotten about it (Rex celebrating after the game) until I read this. It was a huge division road win, a game we had to have. Nothing wrong with it to me. I'm not offended easily.
This game pretty much makes or breaks our season, that's for sure. We are @New England on Monday night football night week, which is a garunteed loss. We will be 4-6 after that game if we lose tonight. That can't happen if we want to make the playoffs.
Taylor only runs if he has to, and is very good about sliding or going out of bounds. He really hasn't taken too many hits. He hasn't thrown a ton in his 6 starts because we have generally run the ball pretty well, and haven't needed to, besides the Titans game where Boom Herron/Boobie Dixon were our tops backs. He throws a nice ball. I just hope he stays healthy, he's been a pleasant surprise.
Rex has pretty much shut down Fitz each time he's faced him, hopefully that continues. I expect a low scoring game. I really don't know who is gonna win, I'm truly 50-50. The only way I'd be surprised is if someone wins in a lopsided fashion.
Hmm...we didn't have any yesterday, and when Tyrod has played, we really haven't had many at all. Interesting to think we'll certainly have 2-3 Thursday.He's got 10 TDs to 4 INTS and 3 of them came against New England.
If Manuel was playing, well, then yeah, I'd say 2-3..
That being said, we looked much better today as we got back a lot of our key players we were missing against Jacksonville. It's gonna be real tough going on the road with short rest in an emotional game. We have never done well on a Thursday night game. I'm gonna assume that continues.
Missing our starting SS maybe? I don't know. It should have never happened, the 3rd and long play we got called for PI on Robey was complete garbage, he literally never touched the guy. Horrible job by the refs to give them a free first down and extend the drive.
Too many injuries. Not many teams would win any game without the players we were missing, the most important being the QB. I said in another thread I was very worried about this game. You only have so much depth.
I'm really not worried at all. Yeah we're supposed to be good, but the loss to New England is nothing. They are one a tear, and the best team in the NFL. Cincy is 6-0 now and will likely be in the AFC title game. I don't think anyone here had AFC title game expectations. Wildcard game is really where we all thought the ceiling was for us, especially considering the questions at QB...
Plus the injuries are really a major factor. We played the Bengals with our backup QB, backup SS, #2 WR, and then by halftime were without our #1 WR, starting RT and a starting DT...I don't really know how we were really supposed to win that game considering the circumstances against a AFC power. Personnel matters.
