Buffalo Billed for big win to set season back on track.

Buffalo Bills fans will be hoping their shaky start is just unlucky and not symptomatic of a regressing team that has been found out.

Opening their season with a narrow loss to the New York Jets, who lost star quarterback Aaron Rodgers early on in the game, caught them out.

They quickly returned to winning ways against the Las Vegas Raiders and Washington Commanders as they showed their style with a combined winning margin of 62 points, giving everyone the impression the Jets had just played them on an off day.

It looked as if they were clear to start challenging divisional rivals Miami Dolphins, whom they beat in a blockbuster 48-20 matchup, but a resurgent Jacksonville Jaguars side, led by an ever-improving Trevor Lawrence, caught them out again to give them three wins and two losses from the first quarter of the season, bringing back those doubts that surfaced on the opening night.

Up next is what seems to be a simple stepping stone to silencing the critics. Bills quarterback Josh Allen has averaged over 280 passing yards and 2.1 touchdowns per game and the New York Giants, whom await them at the Metlife Stadium in week six, have one of the worst defensive records in the league, allowing an average of 378 yards against them every game.

What helps even more is that the Giants have most of their key players being bandaged up. Quarterback Daniel Jones, running back Saquon Barkley, left tackle Andrew Thomas, linebacker Azeez Ojulari and cornerback Deonte Banks are all doubtful to play, leaving a bare-boned Giants side with just one win this season to face the high-scoring and desperate for avengement Bills.

An opponent that is already struggling, a quarterback that is playing at the top level and a need to prove they can reach what they have fallen short of so far should see a blowout by the Bills.

Anything less would raise more questions about whether the lethal ability to score that has become synonymous with Josh Allen and the Bills has started to fade and their best chance to secure a Lombardi Trophy in a long time has started to slip away.
