Buffalo Bills: 4 bold predictions for Week 2 vs. Dolphins
The Buffalo Bills are facing the Miami Dolphins in Week 2 in a big AFC East divisional matchup that could play into some playoff implications down the line. The Bills lost their season opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers in a weird game offensively.
The Dolphins squeaked by the New England Patriots in their opener and now the division rivals face-off, and the Bills need to do whatever it takes to go 0-2 to begin the year.
Bills bold predictions vs Dolphins
4. Josh Allen bounces back with a huge game
The Dolphins defense is a nice one, but Josh Allen is an MVP candidate for a reason. The Bills Qb had a shaky season opener against the Steelers, throwing for 270 yards and just one score on 51 attempts. Don’t expect that to happen Sunday. Rather, Allen will explode for 300 yards and three scores, at least, and the Bills will show everybody that they are the prime of the AFC East.
3. Zack Moss starts– and scores
Ok, this is BOLD.
Moss was a shocking inactive in their season opener. But, the Bills rushing attack was uneven. Devin Singletary had 11 carries for 72 yards and Matt Breida had just four carries for four yards, with Allen chipping in 44 yards on nine totes. The word on the street has been mum on Moss’ status for Week 2, so he could be inactive again.
But, they might start him, and if he does, expect Moss to run with a vengeance and rumble into the end zone.
2. Bills defense frustrates Tua
Tua Tagovailoa has had a rocky beginning to his NFL career. In Week 1 of his sophomore campaign, he went 16-27 for 202 yards with a touchdown and an interception. Will Fuller is out once again for the Dolphins, and expect this Bills defense to attack him at a relentless rate.
Tua might not throw any touchdowns, but he probably does finish with one score and a pair of interceptions.
1. Stefon Diggs goes nuclear
The Josh Allen-Stefon Diggs combo is one of the best QB/WR duos in the entire NFL. Diggs was a target hog in Week 1 as Allen targeted him 13 times, and he had nine grabs for just 69 yards and could not cross into the endzone.
That won’t happen again and expect Allen to lean on Diggs heavily once again. Diggs could post a monster line of 15 catches for 150 yards and a couple of scores and nobody would be surprised because he is that good.
