Denver Broncos vs. Buffalo Bills: Behind Enemy Lines
By Tylor Walden
As the Denver Broncos prepare for the Buffalo Bills, I decided to go into enemy territory to see the state of the Bills.
If you were to ask me who has been the most surprising team of the 2020 season, I would either give you the Cleveland Browns or Buffalo Bills. The Denver Broncos are set to face one of those teams on Saturday.
With the New England Patriots no longer controlling the division, it gives the other three members of the AFC East a chance to build and battle for the king of the division. As it stands now, the Bills are only one win away or a Miami Dolphins loss from clinching their first AFC East title since 1995.
That would be quite the feat for the Bills. It would also secure them their first home playoff game in a very long time. Bills Mafia is getting excited about that idea. But first, they likely will have to get through the Broncos, which will not be an easy task.
Denver is also playing for their playoff birth, but it is a very small hope they make it. However, if it is possible, you just keep fighting until the lady sings. We shall see how it goes.
For the first time in a while, I will be going behind enemy lines. I am very intrigued on the state of the Buffalo Bills, which leads me to our guest.
Clare Thomas Alan is a member of Bills Mafia. Some may know her from her alias as American Blonde Ale, who is a craft beer enthusiast who rates and reviews different types of those wonderful adult beverages we enjoy during football games.
I sat down with Clare to see what she had to say about the Buffalo Bills.
Ty: How excited are you about the Buffalo Bills potential this season?
Clare: I think it is thrilling. I haven’t seen the Bills do much in my lifetime. My dad went to college in Buffalo and he wants to see that rise again. The potential to win the AFC East. We won a Monday Night Football game for the first time since 1995.
My dad is really excited about all this. My sister was born in 1995, so there has not been any success since my siblings and I were born. My dad tells me, now you know why we have been Bills fans all this time.
Ty: Do you believe this team has a good chance to win their division?
Clare: We are ahead of Miami by two games. Hopefully, Saturday’s game will help us lock up the division. But if we do not, the season finale against the Dolphins could be for all the marbles. I do not want to be superstitious, but I am really hopeful.
Ty: In your opinion, do the Broncos present the strongest challenge remaining this season?
Clare: I think the Broncos will be a big challenge because it will determine how the final two games will go. If this is a win, it is great for the remainder of the season. If Buffalo does not win, the next two games puts a lot of pressure on everyone.
I think this game will prove challenging because the fans won’t be there to help cheer people on and not there to give that spirit. They also have to push on their own the rest of the season.
Ty: What do you think will have an impact on the Bills winning on Saturday, offense or defense?
Clare: I do not know if it will be one or the other. You need an equal communication between the two. As long as there is a strong communication line, it will be like a chef’s kiss. Perfection.
Ty: Is there a player you are keeping an eye on for Saturday’s game?
Clare: I am keeping an eye on a certain player, I am hoping he helps lead them to victory. But I have the biggest crush on Dawson Knox. Everyone asks me who my favorite player is and they expect me to say Josh Allen or Stefon Diggs because he is doing so well. But it is Dawson Knox. I just love him.
