The Buffalo Bills enter the 2021 season after winning their Premier League title since 1995, finishing with a 13-3 record and posting a franchise record of 501 points following acquisitions of players like Stefon Diggs Mario Addison and AJ Klein in the during the previous offseason. The influx of talent helped propel the Bills under head coach Sean McDermott and bring QB Josh Allen back to their first AFC Championship game since 1993, where the Bills would fall to the defending champion. of the time, the Kansas City Chiefs by a final tally of 38-24. Allen and Diggs, along with the rest of Buffalo’s dynamic offense, are some of the best in the league to come this season as they were No.3 in assist last year and improved their scoring average by nearly 12 points per game. Allen’s insane growth in the third year with Diggs as his best player was staggering and led to Diggs being the NFL’s leading receiver with 127 catches for 1,535 yards and eight touchdowns last season. The Bills also have Cole Beasley and Gabriel Davis as the main volume and speed threat receivers while Devin Singletary and Zack Moss give Buffalo a scary two-headed monster in the backfield. Defensively, the Bills only get stronger with the return of Star Lotulelei, who has chosen not to participate in 2020 due to COVID-19 security, while Jerry Hughes and Mario Addison will assist Lotulelei and Ed Oliver from the one of the best defensive fronts in the league. . Tremaine Edmunds and a hopefully healthy Matt Milano anchor the linebackers while Tre-Davious White, Jordan Poyer and Micah Hyde wait in high school. As a team, Buffalo averaged 31.3 points per game while allowing 23.4 points per game last season.
The Detroit Lions enter this one with a long list of goals under new head coach Dan Campbell after ending the Matt Patricia era last season. Goals like improving their 5-11 record from last year as well as making the playoffs for the first time since 2016 and winning their Premier League title since 1993. 2008 marks the first year Matthew Stafford will not start under. the center for the Lions as he was sent to the Los Angeles Rams in exchange for a few draft picks and new starting quarterback Jared Goff. The key to any success for Detroit will be keeping Goff healthy, as David Blough and Tim Boyle are not very capable substitutes and that starts with Lions Draft Penei Sewell in the first round of the NFL Draft in the offseason. . The big acquisition in the field was Jamaal Williams to compliment D’Andre Swift while Jermar Jefferson and Dedrick Mills are also field options for Detroit. While the Lions lost Kenny Golladay, Marvin Jones Jr. and Danny Amendola, the Lions skillfully replaced them with Tyrell Williams, Breshad Perriman, Quintez Cephus and rookie Amon-Ra St. Brown. TJ Hockenson is also coming back to the tight end and could be in line for a massive season here. In defense, Aaron Glenn is tasked with improving one of the worst defensive units the Lions have ever put on the field. Michael Brockers was signed on to help put pressure on opposing QBs while Alex Anzalone was signed to anchor the linebacker squad led by Jamie Collins. Jeff Okudah leads the Detroit high school while Tracy Walker and Will Harris are expected to start on safety points. Quinton Dunbar was brought in as a veteran of the Lions and could also end up having a fair share of playing time. As a team, Detroit averaged 23.4 points per game while allowing 32.4 points. per game last season.

Buffalo is 9-2 ATS in its last 11 total games and 5-1 ATS in its last 6 games as a favorite, while the top is 11- 5-1 in his last 17 games as a road favorite. Detroit is 5-11 ATS in its last 16 games on the turf while the surplus is 12-3 in its last 15 home games.
I don’t even think we have to wait until the regular season to dismiss these Lions. They are just not a good football team and a change of coach will not change that. I also don’t think Jared Goff is ready for the upcoming fights in Detroit. Buffalo is gearing up for another run to back-to-back division titles and is hungry after deepening the playoffs last year. Give me the bills in this one.
