Packers vs. Bills: Preview and Prediction


Sunday’s contest between the Green Bay Packers and Buffalo Bills is an intriguing matchup, after both teams had surprising performances in Week 3. The Packers lost to the Washington Redskins, 31-17, and the Bills stunned the Minnesota Vikings, 27-6, behind a strong showing by rookie quarterback Josh Allen.

The Packers (1-1-1) can’t take the Bills (1-2) lightly. Allen is the wild card in this matchup. He completed 15-of-22 pass attempts for 196 yards and one score and rushed for 39 yards and two touchdowns on 10 attempts against a talented Minnesota defense.

This contest will come down to QB play, as neither team has a strong defense.

Coach Mike McCarthy needs to make running back Aaron Jones a bigger priority in the offense. After serving a two-game suspension, Jones led the Packers with 42 yards on six carries against Washington. He has game-changing ability unlike the other running backs on the roster.

Playing at Lambeau Field will serve as an advantage for the Packers, who will win a tight contest over the Bills.

Prediction: Packers 27, Bills 20
