There are several reasons why the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have no chance to win against the Buffalo Bills this Sunday. Let's get things straight It's nothing against the bucks. It pretty much doesn't matter who is on the other side this week. Expect the Bills to come out firing. Trent Edwards and his arsenal will be ready to go . The Defense will penetrate and get to Byron Leftwich. and the way they showed on Monday I don't see the Cadillac coming out of the garage . Buffalo just came off a terrible heart breaker and it came from the one thing that was a "sure thing" in resent history Special Teams. This will be the X factor. Take a look at how this game will will unfold, and how the Buffalo Bills will get it done this week.
The New England Patriots did a great job in containing the Dynamic Duo. (Lee Evans & T.O.) Remember it was the Patriots and Belichik, who is a master at taking away what you want to do most. Tampa Bay have good corners, but not on this Sunday. they will see how the Bills could handle the blitzes, and counter them with screens and short accurate passing.(pick your poison). Look for T.O. and Evans to get more touches. Although the Bills lost on Monday Trent Edwards Looked like an MVP QB. Reading the defenses, and releasing the football accurately, and on time. His confidences should be pretty high, so he might air it out a few more times to his mates. the O line showed they can hold. and let's not forget Fred Jackson. He was the all star of the night. He should continue that trend.
By now everybody knows about the late implosion in the first game,and the fumble by Leodis Mcelvin that started it. If it happens again I don't have a problem with him bringing it out. He is an explosive player and could take it to the house any given moment. He made a careless mistake and I' m confident he learned his lesson.(just hold on to the f@#$en football) Look for the DB to redeem himself by taking one to the house, or getting an interception or two. The Bills showed they could put pressure on a good patriots line. Maybin and Schovel will continue to do what they do. Leftwich will definitely have his hands full. Other than Leodis no one felt the MNF loss more Dante Whitner explaining in tears how they gave their all and came up short. These guys will be ready Sunday. The only glitch is that Paul Posluszny will be out for a bit, but Buggs should fit in nicely. Overall this defense is extremely solid and this time will dominate for sixty minutes not fifty-five.
It is no secret that the Buffalo Bills Special teams has been just that (special) in recent history. Among the elite, with a few of the most explosive players on the planet. Players like Terrence Mcgee, Roscoe Parrish, and Leodis Mcelvin. These guys can take it to the house at any given moment. As a matter of fact they consistently give the Bills offense great field position, and in some cases scored a touchdown to relieve some pressure for them. It is ironic that this is the phase of the game that cost them a sure victory last week vs the pats. Expect this team to redeem themselves and restore the confidence of the team, that their Special teams is still among the best.
There are several things the Buffalo Bills can take out of the heartbreaking loss to the Patriots. Trent Edwards was spectacular. The Offensive line held up, and the defense was extremely solid. The Bills have a bitter taste in their mouth, and unfortunately for the Buccaneers they will go into Ralph Wilson Stadium already doomed for a loss. All the signs indicate that the Bills are ready for the home opener, and will put a beat down on the next opponent. (Tampa Bay) In a close game early Fred Jackson will set the tone and help the Bills slowly separate. and this time they will finish, and finish strong. Bills win 31 -17
