The Buffalo Bills (4-9) welcome the Detroit Lions (5-8) to New Era Field at 1 p.m. Eastern Sunday for a Week 15 clash, and the latest edition of Billieve: a Buffalo Bills Fan Podcast has you covered with everything you need to know as the Bills look to split their four games against the NFC North in 2018.
Host John Boccacino is joined by Chris Perfett from Pride of Detroit to preview the game, a showdown featuring one team that has officially been eliminated from the playoffs (the Bills) against another team whose chances are faint (the Lions).
Coming off a disappointing 27-23 loss to the New York Jets at home in Week 14, the Bills are looking to rebound against a Lions team that has dropped five of their last seven games to fall out of the playoff race.
Detroit’s defense is rounding into form over the last four games, but on the whole Perfett says it has been a disappointing year for the Lions in head coach Matt Patricia’s first year. What has gone right and what has gone wrong so far this year for the Lions?
On the other side, Buffalo Bills’ rookie quarterback Josh Allen is on a tear running the football—he leads the team with 490 rushing yards over nine games (eight starts). How will Detroit try and stop Allen on the ground and through the air? What’s the future of Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford and his big contract? Where have all of Detroit’s offensive weapons gone?
Our podcasters also offer up their score predictions for the contest.
