NE/Miami Down... we're on to Buffalo. Let's of course enjoy the win we got last night, but not be over zealous heading into Buffalo. They gave Miami and NE a pretty rough time and it leaves me to conclude that they shall do the same to us and not just roll over and die. They are bound to win some football games this year, why not against us. Remember last year they did split with us and only lost by 3 in the second match of the season. The last thing we need is to roll into Buffalo on our high horse and get knocked on our asses.
In my opinion this is a must win. Divisionally we are tied for first with Miami and NE and since those two teams will meet up next weekend as well one of them will end up 3-1. We need to be 3-1 with them.
We've got some very tough teams in our schedule this year... some showing now they will be tougher than anticipated when the schedule first came out like Pittsburgh, Chicago, and Houston. We need as many wins as we can grab before that aweful stretch of games during Nov-Dec. Not to even mention a hot Green Bay team.
Losing to Buffalo would just hurt. I can see a lot of views on these boards already bragging and boasting about the last two wins and how we're going to spank Buffalo, but all I'm saying is we really need to stay focused on one opponent at a time and play it game by game showing appropriate respect to each challenger.
Buffalo should be an easy bump in a rough schedule but it's a bump none the less and we must pass it with a win.
