Could Be Bad News For the Bills For Sunday’s Game in Orchard Park
The Buffalo Bills are moving on from their 33-30 overtime loss to the Minnesota Vikings this past Sunday, although fans are still not ready to move on.
The Bills blew a 17-point lead in the second half and allowed Minnesota to get back into the game.
Josh Allen had three turnovers, two of which were extremely costly late in the game and overtime. The defensive line couldn't get to Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins until late in the game, which allowed wide receiver Justin Jefferson to take advantage of a depleted Bills secondary, and the play-calling from Ken Dorsey was questionable.
The Bills are now third in the AFC East and sixth in the AFC, since the Miami Dolphins and New York Jets hold tiebreakers with the head-to-head victories.
The Bills will now host the Cleveland Browns this Sunday at Highmark Stadium but one thing could mean bad news for the Bills: the snowy weather.
There's a Winter Storm Watch in effect for Erie County from Thursday evening through most of Sunday. The snow totals could be anywhere from 1-2 feet of snow, potentially a little more, depending on if the lake effect band stays over one particular area.
The worst of the snow will be Friday and Saturday. Sunday's forecast calls for thee lake effect machine to weaken and shift well south, but there could be 1-2 inches of snow in Orchard Park on Sunday.
It could be a snow game for Browns at Bills and with the winds, that means the Bills will likely see a lot of Browns running back Nick Chubb, who has been the best running back in the league this season.
The Bills are driven by a high-octane passing game and this forecast would not be ideal for that. Buffalo will likely need to rely on their run game more than ever, which we haven't seen too much of, outside of Josh Allen scrambles or designed runs.
This game is one year removed (almost to the day) of the Indianapolis Colts running back Jonathan Taylor running down the Bills throat; the Sunday before Thanksgiving. That too was a bad weather game, with cold rain the duration of the game.
Let's hope history does not repeat itself.
Also, the Bills played the Browns in Cleveland back in December of 2007 in what was a white-out snow game. Browns won 8-0. The quarterback for Cleveland this Sunday is Jacoby Brissett, who was the Colts starter against the Bills in the 2017 lake effect snow game...
