Big stretch of opportunity begins for Bills
By Brandon J. Koch
The Buffalo Bills start a string of 3 games in a span of 11 days, starting Sunday against Tampa Bay.
This is a tremendous opportunity for this football team to try and rack up some wins. They got healthier, EJ Gaines and Leonard Johnson should be coming back and Jordan Matthews is a game time decision, but is coming along earlier than expected. Cordy Glenn has another couple weeks or rest under his belt and should be starting Sunday. He’s a big piece on that offensive line.
I hate looking ahead, because it’s a week to week league. Look in Green Bay, they were talking playoff as they usually are, and possible Super Bowl contending team. Now Aaron Rodgers is out and the football world has no idea what will happen. The Bills go into week 5 against the Bengals with their top passing threat in Charles Clay. He gets injured and will be out a number of weeks. It just goes to show, the landscape of an NFL team and the league can shift in one play, one week.
These Buffalo Bills will be playing a lot in the coming days, it’s hard not to think about where we want this team to be on Thursday night after they face the Jets.
The drought is on every mind of a Bills fan. This is a stretch where you have to think that if they can get 2 or 3 wins, they set themselves up great for December. Stacking up wins for December is so important. All games in December are AFC, 4 of them are division opponents.
So yeah I hate looking ahead, it’s hard not too, there’s a lot of football left. If the Bills take care of business
these coming weeks, there will be serious talk of breaking that drought.
