Why Buffalo Will Win
The Bills have the offensive balance the Raiders haven’t seen yet, at least if you throw in the downfield passing game.
Drew Brees was able to throw for 312 yards in the 34-24 Raider win, but there wasn’t much of anything happening from the wide receivers.

What’s Going To Happen
Can the Raiders keep up the pace?
The Vegas D hasn’t exactly been air-tight, and now it’s going up against a machine. However, Buffalo will finally have to go on the road to deal with a decent team that’s going to get physical.
