Can The Injured Buffalo Bills Add Another Win This Weekend?
The Bills over the last couple of weeks have been plagued with injuries, there are many players that are questionable heading into Sunday’s game and some have already been confirmed as out for the game against the New York Giants. Here are some of the key players with injuries….
The following will not play against the Giants… Demetrius Bell, Donald Jones, Chris Kelsay and Aaron Williams. Shawn Merriman is out and didn’t even travel with the team due to his achilles injury.
Some of the guys could play, but we won’t find out until game time… Kyle Williams, Nick Barnett, Da’Norris Searcy and Torrell Troup.
The Bills have also lost Roscoe Parrish and Marcus Easley to injuries. So, do the Bills stand a chance to win against the Giants this weekend? The Bills have alot of injuries as the Giants do including Justin Tuck, Brandon Jacobs, Prince Amukamara and Osi Umenyiora. The injuries to the Giants obviously could work out in the Bills favor. I am not worried about out offense led by Ryan Fitzpatrick, the Bills offense has shown that it
can put points on the board no matter the opponent. David Nelson and Scott Chandler will need to be utilized in this game. The Bills defense is what scares me in this game, our defense is giving up lots of yards but creating turnovers. Giants quarterback Eli Manning does throw his share of interceptions and the Bills will again need to create those turnovers to have success against this Giants team. If the Bills can get those turnovers they will have the upper hand in this game. The running game for the Bills and Giants will be big in this game too, both teams have a strong running game with Fred Jackson and Ahmad Bradshaw. Luckily for the Bills the Giants hard runner Brandon Jacobs will not play, Jacobs is a hard runner not easy to stop and that will be one less challenge for the Bills. The Bills will need to stop the good receiving core that the Giants have too including Victor Cruz who has been a downfield threat. I hope the Bills are well prepared for this game, this will be another big test and after Sunday’s game the Bills will have some time to get healthy as they head into the bye week. It’ll be an interesting one to watch, pretty even matchup. Prediction 35-31 Bills win. I could be wrong, but hey, I was right about the Bengals and Eagles games the last two weeks. Let’s Go Buffalo!!
