It is Week 2 of the NFL season, and the the latest edition of Four Downs is ready for fans of the Buffalo Bills. Check out the latest on Zack Moss, Gabriel Davis, and my game predictions below.
Will Zack Moss be active on Sunday?
Consider me one member of Bills Mafia that was very surprised when I heard Moss was inactive last week against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Rather than look back, I prefer to look towards Sunday’s game against the Miami Dolphins, where I hope Moss will be active.
Moss is an effective pass blocker, provides a bit of power in the run game, and is effective catching passes out of the backfield. If I had to choose between Matt Breida and Moss on Sunday, I am going with Moss every time.
Sean McDermott appeared on The Extra Point Show, and discussed briefly the status of Moss. McDermott noted that the injuries that Moss had during training camp played a factor in him being inactive during the opener. You can listen to the segment here, and draw your own conclusions on the Utah-product’s status for Sunday.
Keeping an eye on Gabriel Davis
The Bills seem relatively healthy heading into Sunday’s game, but I am keeping a watchful eye on Gabriel Davis. He was limited in practice on Thursday and Friday, after being a DNP for Wednesday’s session. If Davis is unavailable to play, fans could see plenty of Jake Kumerow against the Dolphins. I am guessing that Davis is active on Sunday, barring a setback later this week.
Podcast of the Week
There are not many people that can make me feel rational after a tough loss, but Bruce Nolan is certainly one that can. In his latest episode of The Bruce Exclusive, he breaks down the loss as only he can, with a thoughtful analysis of all facets of the game. If you have not caught it yet, the episode is certainly worth your time.
Prediction - Bill 31, Dolphins 24
Consider this a bounce back game for the Bills offense, as Josh Allen throws for over 300 yards and Stefon Diggs tops 100 yards receiving. The Bills defense is led by Tre White, who nabs a fourth quarter interception to seal the victory.
