If the Bills were smart, they would quickly forget the thrashing they took on opening weekend, but getting a loss like that out of your head is no easy task—even for a professional athlete.
The Bills will also have to rebound from losing two of their starters on offense versus the Jets. Fred Jackson and David Nelson were both lost in the first half of the opener. Jackson luckily escaped from a nasty hit by LaRon Landry without a tear in his knee, but Nelson was lost for the year with an ACL injury.
Young players C.J. Spiller and T.J. Graham will be called on to fill the roles left by those two players. The Bills will need their guys to grow up fast if the offense is going to succeed moving forward into the season.
An 0-2 start to the season would quickly deflate any momentum the team had going in and would seriously dent any thoughts the team had about making their first playoff run in 13 years.
