Buffalo Bills at Green Bay Packers: first half open thread

The Bills go for two consecutive improbable road wins in the not-so-frozen Tundra of Lambeau Field

The Buffalo Bills could do themselves plenty of favors this week by earning a second consecutive road victory over an NFC North opponent. This week, the Bills take on the Green Bay Packers in a match-up of one-win teams. The difference is that Buffalo has two losses, whereas the Packers have one loss and one tie.

Buffalo dismantled the Minnesota Vikings last week, ruining knockout pools and three-team teasers all over the country on their way to a 27-6 shellacking of the Super Bowl contenders. Meanwhile, the Packers lost their first game of the year, falling 31-17 to the Washington Redskins.

A win for the Bills would even their record in what was a brutal September schedule. Three of their four games have been on the road, and the one home game was against a strong Los Angeles Chargers team. A win for Green Bay would bring them closer to first place in their division, which is currently occupied by the Chicago Bears.

Running back LeSean McCoy is active and expected to contribute today for the Bills, which is great news for quarterback Josh Allen. Packers’ quarterback Aaron Rodgers is set to continue playing through a knee injury that has hindered him since week one.

Keep it here for your in-game Rumblings, and let’s hope that this first-half thread is as fun as last week’s.

Go Bills!
