Denver Broncos 2019 Opponent Preview: Buffalo Bills
The road trip continues before Thanksgiving as the Denver Broncos face off against the Buffalo Bills in a Week 12 matchup at Orchard Park.
The cold north road trip continues for the Denver Broncos as they will visit Buffalo, New York for a game against the Bills. Both teams faced off against each other in the 2017 season, where the Broncos were unable to capitalize and made mistakes en route to a 26-16 loss.
Denver’s loss to the Bills gave Buffalo its 21st win in the all time series to Denver’s 16. They have tied once as well. If Denver is going to move towards tying the series up, they will need to get some winning streaks together.
For the Buffalo Bills, the team’s 2018 campaign, which was the beginning of the Josh Allen era, finished with a lot of disappointment. A 6-10 record would not be enough to reach the postseason after the team ended the playoff drought the year before.
During the 2019 offseason, the Bills focused on a supporting cast for Allen as they were able to acquire Cole Beasley from the Dallas Cowboys, veteran runner Frank Gore from the Miami Dolphins, and Tyler Kroft from the Cincinnati Bengals.
The Bills used their draft to grab some key needs on the team. In the first round, the Bills chose the player that I was hoping Denver would have gotten in Ed Oliver. The team used an even number of picks on offense and defense, selecting four offensive players and four defensive players.
I would look for weather to play a factor in this game, as it will be late November. The weather will likely be really cold, but perhaps not terrible as the game will kick off at 1 PM EST.
The matchup I am most excited for in this game will be how the two defense’s matchup against the opposing offenses. Both teams are known for their defense.
As the season winds down, this should be a game worth watching.
