Elite quarterback Joe Flacco and his defending Super Bowl Champion Baltimore Ravens head into Orchard Park, New York to take on the Buffalo Bills in Week 4 of NFL Action.
After a terrible showing in Week 4 against the New York Jets, the Bills are looking to rebound. The Bills managed to look bad in just about every facet of the game on their way to losing 27-20 against the Jets, and to make matters worst, suffered perhaps their worst bout of injuries so far in 2013, which is really saying something.
For this first time in his young career, rookie QB E.J. Manuel is facing adversity after a forgettable performance against the Jets. Under constant pressure from New York’s pass rush, Manuel was unable to get anything going offensively. Combined with a struggling run game, the only thing the Bills hurry up offense was able to accomplish was getting the ball back to the Jets offense in record time, allowing them to capitalize on a tired, beat up Bills defense.
On the other hand, after being embarrassed in Week 1 against Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos to the tune of 7 passing touchdowns against, the Baltimore Ravens defense has rebounded nicely and are just 1 of 3 teams to not allow a passing TD in the past two weeks. If the Bills hope to hang with the defending champs. they will need both C.J. Spiller, and E.J. Manuel performing closer to the Week 2 versions of themselves than the Week 3 versions that we saw last week.
With the injuries mounting on defense, and an inexperienced offense, the Baltimore Ravens and their resurgent defense will prove to much for the Bills, who will fall 24-17 while I cheer along from the crowd at the Ralph.
