Buffalo Bills Links, 9/26: Bills can make a statement on Sunday

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

The Buffalo Bills (2-0) host the Los Angeles Rams (2-0) Sunday in a Week 3 clash of the unbeatens, and in today’s edition of the Buffalo Bills daily links, we analyze why the Bills have a chance to make a statement with a win against the undefeated Rams.

We break down the much-anticipated match-up between quarterback Josh Allen and Rams cornerback Jalen Ramsey, who famously called Allen “trash” before Allen had ever thrown an NFL pass.

We dissect what the Bills’ offensive line must do to win the battle in the trenches and slow down All Pro defensive end Aaron Donald, address why the defensive line needs to rise to the occasion and be disruptive if it wants to rattle the Rams’ outside zone run game, get the latest injury news on linebackers Tremaine Edmunds and Matt Milano, and much more!
