Falcons vs Bills is the Perfect Trap Game

The 2-1 Buffalo Bills come down to Atlanta to face the undefeated Falcons in a showdown that could easily be an upset.

The Bills have allowed the fewest points in the NFL. They have yet to face a top tier opponent, though. That will change this Sunday.

The Falcons continue to show off their prolific offense this season under new Offensive Coordinator Steve Sarkisian. Despite a subpar performance in the red zone, the offense has not lost its juice. Expect Julio Jones to score his first touchdown of this season this game—we all know he is itching to.

As long as the offense can get into a rhythm, I think the Dirty Birds can easily pull this one off. If not, expect a showdown similar to week one with the Bears. Chicago had an underrated defense and the Bills certainly do as well. Matt Ryan will have to perform better than he did last week versus the Lions. Knowing his style of play, he should bounce back.

The running game for the Falcons looks better than ever. Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman look unstoppable. The Bills definitely have the potential to limit the damage they could do, but keep your fingers crossed, right? 

The Bills offense is not helpless. Don’t assume that. Tyrod Taylor is more than capable of putting points on the board. Taylor could easily have enough time to throw behind his solid o-line. LeSean “Shady” McCoy hasn’t lived up to expectations since last season. Hopefully, it stays that way. If it doesn’t, Atlanta’s front-seven will face the biggest challenge yet this season.

This will be a hard-fought game, but the Falcons will pull out the W. Dan Quinn will make sure his defense is on point, while Sarkisian will have corrected the miscues that the offense has shown in the beginning of the season. Don’t expect a blowout. Just to be safe, keep some Alka-Seltzer, Zantac, or Prilosec nearby.
