     There is no denying the fact that Drew Brees has led the  New Orleans Saints to a sizzling start(2-0). Scoring nine touchdowns and only two interceptions in two games. The offense averaging over 45 points a game, and practically destroying opponents scoreboards single handedly. So now the question remains how does Buffalo stand a chance. Let me explain not only how the Bills will successfully contain Brees, but flat out hand the saints their first loss of the season. Needless to mention the significance of a victory over such a team. In the N.F.L.'s eyes the bills wouldn't be "under the radar" anymore. This would at the very least stir talks up around the cooler.

     It's no secret on how to beat the Saints. The Buffalo Bills have all the tools to get it done. Trent Edwards must sustain long and methodical drivers to keep Drew and that high powered offense on the sidelines as much as possible. The less he's on the field the better the chance of victory. When he is out there the Bills defense must make him uncomfortable by blitzing and pressuring him. Hoping to rattle his timing just enough to steal a win. Of coarse this won't be "a Brees", but this defense can do it. Thus far they have shown the can play with the best of them, and what better test for a defense than to play a high powered offense like this one. On the other side of that coin, Buffalo must expose the Saints weaknesses, which just so happens to be their defense. They have the worst passing defense in the league, but don't let those stats fool you. the Saints have six 6 interceptions though the first two weeks.     

     Not to discredit what the Saints have accomplished, but they played the Lions, and a banged up eagles team without McNabb. How much can one take out of those two games. As has been the theme thus far this season, not many people are giving the Bills a chance. I assure you the Bills have the best chance as any to win on Sunday. The Offense is slowly becoming a "pick your poison" and "take what you give me" type of offense.  If you bring the safety down to help on the run you get burned by the pass, and visa versa. Trent Edwards has looked a shade under phenomenal, as has Fred Jackson. Look for the Bills to move the ball and rack up points against this passing defense that's ranked in the bottom of the pack.

     Make no mistake about it, turnovers and field position will play the biggest roles in determining the victor. Since I see both sides putting up points, it's vital for the Special Teams to step it up. Needless to say the Bills must win the turnover battle. I don't give them much of a chance if they lose in that category.The home crowd will be a factor in determining the outcome, and Buffalo will "steal" one at home. (37-34)
