The second-seeded Buffalo Bills (14-3) welcome the fifth-seeded Baltimore Ravens (12-5) to Bills Stadium for a primetime AFC Divisional round contest at 8:15 p.m. Saturday night.

This playoff matchup pits two of the hottest teams in the NFL, and on the latest episode of the Billieve Podcast, hosts John Boccacino and Jamie D’Amico have everything you need to know as the Bills look to advance to the AFC Championship game for the first time since the 1993 season.

Among the topics covered on the podcast:

  • How the Bills can lean on last year’s game plan to slow down dynamic Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson.
  • Why Buffalo’s front four needs to maintain their gap integrity and not over-pursue Jackson.
  • How the Ravens present a unique challenge with their multi-faceted rushing attack.
  • Why Buffalo needs to get pressure on Jackson and make him uncomfortable.
  • Can Josh Allen continue to have success against the Ravens, who are sure to bring plenty of pressure and blitzes?
  • Why Allen and the aerial attack should have the edge against the Ravens secondary, and why Bills fans should expect to see huge days from Stefon Diggs, Cole Beasley and Dawson Knox.
  • With Zack Moss out for the year, the pressure is on Devin Singletary and T.J. Yeldon to carry the load out of the backfield. Expect the Bills to employ quick-strike passes to their backs to take advantage of the Ravens’ linebackers.
  • What role the weather could play in the game.
  • Score predictions from Boccacino and D’Amico.
