NFL Week 3: Buffalo Bills vs. Cleveland Browns Preview and Prediction

Aaron Nagler@Aaron_NaglerNFL National Lead WriterSeptember 17, 2012

The Buffalo Bills and Cleveland Browns both seemed to find their offenses in Week 2, with the Bills absolutely destroying the Kansas City Chiefs and the Browns keeping things respectable versus the Bengals. 

The big question heading into this game, at least for me, lies on the opposite side of the ball for the Bills. We finally saw signs of life from their prized free-agent acquisition in Mario Williams, and the secondary seemed to tighten up against the Chiefs. 

You have to think if there was ever a team defensive coordinator Dave Wannstedt would play a bit more Cover 1 against, rather than keeping his safeties back, you have to think the Browns are it. 

There really is no mystery to this game overall. The Browns will try to work Trent Richardson as much as they can to open things up for Greg Little and Mohamed Massaquoi. You have to think the Bills will want to work Mario Williams over the right side, the opposite side of Joe Thomas. 

This should be an old-school matchup, with a lot of emphasis on the running the football. They say the NFL is a passing league these days, but this will certainly be a bit of a throwback game.
