Potential Upset Of The Week - Buffalo Bills vs Green Bay Packers

The one thing the Buffalo Bills showed us last week was never underestimate David, even if Goliath is enormous. Last week the Bills were the most substantial underdog in years against the Minnesota Vikings and went into Minny and handled them. That colossal upset and seeing what the Washington Redskins did to the Green Bay Packers, it could be another huge win for the Bills.

The Buffalo Bills defence showed up finally to make a statement that they are one of the best defences in the league. The front four especially Jerry Hughes was a beast in giving Kirk Cousins no time to do anything last week. Joined by linebackers Matt Milano and Tremaine Edmunds who shut down that potent offence of the Minnesota Vikings.

Josh Allen showed the Billsmafia why he was picked 7th overall in this year's draft. Allen threw one touchdown pass and rushed for two more. His poise and decision making was indeed on cue and settled the offence down, and everyone had more confidence in each other. The play where Josh Allen leapt over 6"5 linebacker Anthony Barr it pumped up the whole Bills team, and it just kept growing throughout the game.

The second half they took the gas pedal off, and they will not be able to do that with the Green Bay Packers if they want to win. The Bills upset the Vikings last week, and they didn't have their best offensive payer in LeSean McCoy.

The Green Bay Packers defence has been suspect all season long, but last week against the Washington Redskins the offence looked below average. Now that has a lot to do with the injury that Aaron Rodgers has. He has been playing on basically one leg, and it shows the struggle he was having. With Buffalo's defence with all the confidence in the world coming in, this could be a sad day for Aaron Rodgers.

Their run game is nowhere near the top, so it won't help the passing game unfold. The defence needs to make Josh Allen make rookie mistakes which Minnesota couldn't do. The defence might also have to worry about LeSean McCoy also coming back.

The Buffalo Bills have all the right ingredients to pull off another major upset this week!
