I borrowed a term from tennis but we need to avoid those unforced errors. Lamar's pick yesterday was the glaring example but dropped passes and stupid penalties are the others.

It seems like there's always at least one or two of the stupid variety.  I just hope, like in the Titans game, it doesn't come back to haunt them.  Judon and Peters can never control their emotions so there's always a personal foul in the waiting.

Buffalo is the Hail Murray away from being on an 11 game win streak. They finished the reg season winning their final 6 games all by double digits. This team is pretty much as hot as we were entering the playoffs last year. This will be every bit as tough of a game as we'll face all year.

I still think if they play like they did against the Colts we win and it may not be close.

I think Judon was the most penalized on the defense. I believe he had 8 or 9 penalties for either a neutral zone infraction/offsides or a roughing the passer.

Penalties can be back breakers but I will continue to be concerned about turnovers. No surprise that us evening up the turnover battle ended up being the game sealing play.

Buffalo has been playing great football but the team that showed up last Saturday is quite beatable. It took some odd play calling and Colts' miscues for them to advance.

Anything can happen. I hope Allen turns it over 4 times and we win by 20. I just dont expect that. Just like I dont expect us to fold.

Allen is a lot like Lamar in that he makes some of his most impactful plays when things break down and he has to improvise. Pass rush really needs to get home when they do decide to blitz. Maybe we see some creepers where 7-8 guys are at the line but you don't know who's coming. But as good as the secondary is, I'd be nervous about asking corners to cover Diggs without help.

There are only 8 teams left so no easy ones from here, and Buffalo IMO, is very good.  Allen has come a long way.  I think the challenge is opposite of last week.  Last week, the need was to stop the run.  Buffalo is not a good run team but Allen is red hot.  Slow him down and I think we win, maybe even pull away late.  Let's Go Ravens.

I think it was Romo that said he can live with the penalties when a guy is playing hard. Sometimes ruffing the passer happens that is really unavoidable. The offsides and boneheaded unsportsmanlike penalties are the ones that he needs to clean up.

Here

 

This Monday I began with another viewing of the Buffalo Bills’ win over the Indianapolis Colts, to see what worked, and what did not, for the Bills on both sides of the football. Two plays early in the game stood out to me, instances where the Colts were able to get Josh Allen off his initial read due to mugged looks up front, where one or more defenders are showing a blitz. On these occasions not only did the Colts find a way to take away Allen’s first read, they found ways to pressure him while doing so.

 

That sent me down a film rabbit hole, and hours later I had cut together different examples from throughout the season where such defensive fronts forced mistakes and even near-interceptions from the Bills passer. In this video breakdown you’ll see some of those examples, building to the two plays from early in Saturday’s contest:

One non analytical thing, I definitely don't have any hate for the Bills. Josh Allen seems like a good dude and the Bills have none of that a-hole factor that the Titans have.

Another thing, I think Allen has some fumble problems. 10 on the year, losing 6. I could see Ngakoue who loves to swipe nabbing one this weekend.

Lamar Jackson said he has "zero experience" playing in the snow and he hopes he doesn't have to Saturday night.

LT said that Buffalo’s defense is small and can be attacked up the middle. He’s predicting a huge game from Dobbins.

I'd be in their camp against KC, Cle, TB, LAR and NO. Id like to see Rodgers win 1 more so maybe Id root for the Packers. Dont know.

No surprise.  He is a Florida guy.  Snow changes everything for both teams.  Buffalo’s lack of run game, becomes an issue in the snow.

I didn’t expect he would in high school. But in 3 years in college you’d assume he might run into it once or twice.
