The Buffalo Bills are looking to lock up the AFC East title on Saturday, as they travel to Colorado to take on the Denver Broncos. Get all the latest on John Brown, Daryl Williams, and more in the most recent edition of Four Downs.
Take your time, John Brown
As much as I am anxious to see John Brown back on the field for the Bills, I am happy that there’s no need to rush him back for Saturday’s game. While Brown is back practicing, he has been ruled out for week 15. Gabriel Davis has given offensive coordinator Brian Daboll another weapon in the pass game, with a touchdown reception in four of his last five games. Brown, and the Bills, can take the time needed for a full recovery, as the team prepares for a playoff run.
Take a bow, Daryl Williams
The player I was most worried about in the Bills matchup with the Pittsburgh Steelers last week was defensive end T.J. Watt. He is arguably the best defensive player in the NFL, and can wreck an offensive game plan all by himself. Those worries were put to rest thanks to the play of Daryl Williams on Sunday night.
The starting right tackle for the Bills will be a free agent at the end of the season, and could be in line for a big contract in Buffalo. If he continues to perform like he did against Watt, he will certainly earn it.
Pod of the Week
This week I truly had the privilege to appear on the “Shout!” podcast with Matt Parrino and Ryan Talbot of NewYorkUpstate.com. Both of these guys are always so generous with their time, appearing on multiple shows that we have here at Buffalo Rumblings. If you did not get to catch the episode live, you can view it here.
Prediction - Bills 31, Broncos 17
Traveling across the country on a short week is never ideal, but the Bills shake off a sluggish start to pull away from the Broncos in the second half. Josh Allen goes for over 300 yards, while Zack Moss closes out the game again in the fourth quarter. The defense ramps up the pressure on Drew Lock in the second half, shutting down the Broncos’ defense.
