To kick off the new NFL season, the Buffalo Bills will take on the Los Angeles Rams, the reigning Super Bowl winners. With an outstanding defense and strong quarterback Josh Allen, the guests managed a clear victory. The experts believe the Bills are capable of the really big coup.
The Buffalo Bills confirmed their status as Super Bowl favorites to start the NFL season with a convincing win over the defending champion Los Angeles Rams. The 31:10 on Thursday evening put the emotional fans of the Bills in a good mood and long faces among those of the Rams, who had cheered the banner for the Super Bowl victory in February at the same place before the game at SoFi Stadium.
The Bills, on the other hand, seem to be among the teams that have legitimate hopes of a really big triumph after the bitter playoff defeat against the Kansas City Chiefs last season. The team is even the top favorite for experts and bookmakers. There's still a long way to go before the Super Bowl in Glendale, Arizona on February 12, but first impressions were strong. "Our defense played an outstanding game," said quarterback Josh Allen, who was responsible for four touchdowns himself.
Since this season, part of this strong Bills defense has been Von Miller, who celebrated the title with the Rams in February and has now knocked his former quarterback Matthew Stafford down twice. "Lots of emotions," Miller reported. "I warmed up on the wrong side". In the game, however, he was on the right track and, after winning the title with the Denver Broncos and the Rams, wants to be the first player to win three Super Bowls with three different teams.
It cannot be ruled out that Odell Beckham Jr. will help him as a teammate in attack, as he did when he won the title last time. Since the cruciate ligament rupture in the Super Bowl, the receiver's future has been unclear. While a return to Los Angeles is not out of the question and he would be most welcome there, OBJ has recently been flirting on Twitter with going to the winner of the opening match - and that's the convincing Bills.
