The Buffalo Bills (3-0) travel to Sin City to take on the Las Vegas Raiders (2-1) on Sunday at 4:25 p.m. EDT. Today’s edition of the Bills daily links has everything you need to get ready for game day, from positional breakdowns and analysis to score predictions from Bills beat reporters as the Bills seek their ninth 4-0 start in franchise history.

Among the keys to the game: slow down talented running back Josh Jacobs and not allowing the Raiders to dominate in time of possession, force quarterback Derek Carr into bad decisions by clogging the passing lanes and mixing coverages, contain tight end Darren Waller, have Josh Allen and the numerous offensive weapons take advantage of a banged-up Raiders secondary, feed running back Devin Singletary against a porous Raiders run defense, and continue to get stellar play on special teams.

There’s also information on what fans can expect from cornerback Josh Norman, who was recently activated from the injured reserve, updates on the ever-evolving situation involving the Tennessee Titans, Buffalo’s Week 5 opponent, a tasty recipe for Buffalo Gold sauce on your Buffalo wings, and much more!
