Last week the Buffalo Bills took a 34-21 loss to the New York Jets, falling to 5-3 on the season. This week the Bills face the 6-2 New Orleans Saints. Buffalo has a 43.9% chance to beat New Orleans this week, according to ESPN’s Power Index, who come in riding a 6 game win streak. Here’s my bold predictions for the game:
- QB Tyrod Taylor passes for 300 yards and 2 TDs, with a rushing TD as well. New Orleans 229.9 passing yards per game to opposing QBs. Last week Taylor totaled 285 yards and 2 TDs, while also totaling 35 yards and a TD on the ground. Taylor should be looking to have an even better game this week.
- LeSean McCoy 120 yards and 2 TDs. MCoy has had a somewhat poor season, totaling just 546 yards and 3 TDs on 149 carries. McCoy should be looking to bounce back and get in the end zone this week against a defense that gives up 116.1 yards to opposing teams.
- Kelvin Benjamin 110 yards 1 TD. Buffalo traded for Benjamin at the trade deadline last week. With rookie WR Zay Jones out this week with a knee injury, I would expect more targets for the recently acquired WR.
