Well, here we go. The Buffalo Bills, banged up on both of their lines and reeling after getting outscored 90-17 by the New England Patriots and the San Francisco 49ers over the last six quarters, are on a mission to - at bare minimum - not look like garbage this afternoon against the 4-1 (but vulnerable) Arizona Cardinals.
This is an odd matchup between two teams perceived to be trending in opposite directions. Buffalo's run defense has been awful lately, but so has Arizona's banged-up running game. It's therefore tough to tell if Arizona has the perfect opponent to "get right", or vice versa. As we mentioned in yesterday's preview, it's in this matchup - run game versus run defense on both sides of the ball - where the game will be decided, particularly early.
Here's your open thread to discuss the first half of today's game. Please, Buffalo... get it together. Go Bills!
