The Buffalo Bills finally got back on track last week. They beat the New York Jets 22-6 and snapped a two-game losing streak. They didn’t come back, but they were talented.
But now they face the Philadelphia Eagles.
The Eagles’ 9-1 record is the best in football. Six days ago they beat the Kansas City Chiefs, the same team that beat them in the Super Bowl nine months ago. They had to muscle their way through ugly but successful plays.
But one thing may have stood out for the Bills during that epic Eagles-Chiefs matchup last week: Philly, while tough, wasn’t perfect. Their defense was a terrifying hydra, but the offensive line had many problems. QB Jalen Hurts was sacked five times in the first half and had an interception in the end zone. With guys like WR AJ Brown and RB D’Andre Swift tied up, Hurts usually needs to secure the ball and run forward.
Eagles are beatable. But if there’s one thing the Bills have consistently demonstrated this season, it’s that they’re still winnable — sometimes even beating themselves and helping the opposition.
