Buffalo Bills vs Atlanta Falcons
For the Buffalo, the tests do not get easier immediately after the bye.
The Atlanta will likely be among the greatest teams in the National Football Conference once more and also were nearly as great when driving 6-2 as they went to property 8-2, including playoffs.
They have been an on and off prevalent team in the routine time:13-3 in 2012, 10-6 in 2011, 13-3 in 2010, 9-7 in 2009. They have been to the playoffs each of recent three years, thus there's little factor to presume they'll suffer an obstacle this year. That's specifically accurate taking into consideration the return of cramping end Tony Gonzalez as well as security William Moore.
John Abraham dropping defensive point , Vance Walker defensive address and Dunta Robinson cornerback will hurt, so it will definitely be actually fascinating to see exactly how their defense reacts after ranking an outstanding 5th in places, yet a shoddy 24th in yards allowed last season.
One area they should be actually boosted in is the operating game along with the enhancement of Steven Jackson. The Atlanta could not end up the sphere carrying on the ground in previous season and averaged just 87 yards each game and also 3.7 YPA, both ranking 29th in the NFL.
They could possibly possess excellence manipulating the Buffalo operate defense, which allowed a league-worst 5.04 YPA, however regardless of whether not, the Buffalo do not possess solutions for both Roddy White and Julio Jones outside.
Prediction: Falcons 27, Bills 16
