Bills vs. Bengals: 4 Reasons Buffalo Will Remain Undefeated
Teams should be, well, afraid to play Buffalo.
This week the Bills go into Cincinnati to take on the Bengals who are currently 1-2. The Bengals have not beaten the Bills since 1989, and the Bills are looking to beat the Bengals for the 11th straight time.
Let's take a look at four reasons why the Bills will remain undefeated after today.
4: The Bengals Do Not Have Enough on Offense to Keep Up with the Bills
Andy Dalton looks promising, AJ Greene looks like he is going to be a great player in the league, but the Bengals do not scare anyone on offense. Buffalo does.
Buffalo has a truck load of weapons, while Cincinnati is still trying to find their identity as they rebuild. Cedric Benson is solid but not good enough to take over a game.
The Bengals just do not have enough offense to keep up with the No. 1 scoring team in the NFL.
3: The Goon Squad
The Buffalo Bills have too many options to cover at wide receiver.
The group of Stevie Johnson, David Nelson and Donald Jones has been unstoppable as of late. Stevie Johnson is the No. 1 option, David Nelson is the No. 2 option in the slot and Donald Jones is becoming the deep threat the Bills need.
With Buffalo running a spread offense most of the time, Cincinnati will struggle to cover all of the Bills' wide receivers. Especially with Scott Chandler lining up at tight end.
The Bills are 3-0, and they have Ryan Fitzpatrick to thank for it.
Fitzpatrick has been playing on a level we have not seen since the likes of Jim Kelly. He is the biggest hero to Buffalo since Doug Flutie, and the only serviceable quarterback they have had since Drew Bledsoe.
Fitzpatrick has led two big comebacks over the last weeks, and the Bills players look to him and trust him. He is the leader they need.
1: Fred Jackson
Fred Jackson is making his case for the league's Most Valuable Player.
Jackson has been unstoppable and impossible to tackle one on one. His combination of speed and power is too much for defenses, and the Bengals will have an extremely hard time containing Jackson.
The Bills offense revolves around Fred Jackson, and teams have not figured out an answer for him yet.
