Nathan Peterman Headlines Five Bills to Watch Against Ravens Antworten

The Buffalo Bills enter the 2018 season the same as every other team , sitting with an unblemished record and a mountain of hope. When the team begins its quest for a repeat playoff berth, taking on the Baltimore Ravens Sunday, they will do so with a brand-new offensive coordinator, and a new starting quarterback.Opening weekend in the NFL is often unpredictable and always fun, and part of that excitement comes from watching new players on each team’s roster. Here are five Bills that we’ll be watching this weekend.QB Nathan PetermanThe Bills’ signal-caller is arguably the most important player on this list, and aside from the unit assigned to protect him, his performance could go a long way in deciding how competitive the Bills will be in Baltimore. Peterman had a phenomenal preseason, completing 33-of-41 passes (80%) for 431 yards, 3 touchdowns, and a bad-luck interception on a tipped ball. If Peterman can have similar success against the Ravens, then the Bills have a good chance on Sunday. If not , it could be a long afternoon.WR Zay JonesHead coach Sean McDermott proclaimed Jones “ready to go” in his Tuesday press conference, but the second-year receiver has had a tumultuous off-season and a training camp filled with rehab rather than production on the field. If Jones can play up to his draft position, the Bills have a fourth solid weapon in the passing game behind Kelvin Benjamin, Charles Clay, and LeSean McCoy—or a fifth if you rank Jeremy Kerley ahead of Jones. Either way, now in his second season, Jones will look to take a leap forward. Sunday, against the Ravens, is a good place to start.DE Trent MurphyBuffalo’s $22.5 million pass-rushing free agent spent most of the preseason hampered by a groin injury. While his absence allowed former first-round pick Shaq Lawson to see more playing time, the coaching staff obviously envisioned a rotational situation where Lawson backed up starters Murphy and Jerry Hughes. If Murphy has fully recovered from his groin injury and the ACL surgery that ended his 2017 season before it began, and he can revert to his 2016 form where he notched 9 sacks , then the Bills should field a far more formidable pass rush than last season.CB Vontae DavisWhen the veteran former first-round pick signed a one-year, $5 million deal with Buffalo in the spring, it was presumed that he did so to be the starting corner opposite Tre’Davious White. However, after struggling in the preseason, Sean McDermott would not commit to Davis as the starter, instead saying that the competition between Davis and fellow free-agent signing Phillip Gaines was ongoing. If Davis has lost a step, Baltimore’s solid receiver corps of Michael Crabtree, John Brown, and Willie Snead IV could exploit him all afternoon, leaving a glaring weakness in what was expected to be an area of great strength for the Bills this season. It’s only one game, but Davis has a lot to prove this week.C Ryan GroyThe centerpiece of the unit giving Bills fans the most agita going into this weekend is Groy , the winner of a competition over newcomer Russell Bodine. Groy performed well in Eric Wood’s place during the 2017 season, but he appeared to struggle this preseason, as the Bills allowed consistent pressure on their quarterbacks in all four exhibition games. If Groy can settle in and be consistently above-average, it will go a long way towards stabilizing a worrisome positional group for Buffalo.Bills vs. Bears: five takeaways from Buffalo’s lackluster preseason finale turned comeback win Well the preseason is finally over, and the Buffalo Bills will move on to the regular season. (Well, most of them.) As the team contemplates the roster cutdowns, practice squad spots, and more here are our takeaways from the game against the Chicago Bears.0.0 to heroAJ McCarron was auditioning for his next job tonight and he was pretty terrible in the first half. Instead of upping his trade value, he reinforced why he languished on the free agent market for so long. His QB rating was 0.0 for a time in the second half after his two interceptions (one returned for a touchdown) and multiple incompletions, but he scampered in for a five-yard fourth quarter touchdown run, and threw three touchdown passes to cap a 25-point final frame.Some roster battles decidedThe Bills sat a lot of players due to the short turnaround from Sunday’s game. Running back Marcus Murphy , tight end Jason Croom, and the entire starting offensive line (including both Ryan Groy and Russell Bodine) were among those that didn’t play on offense while the top four cornerbacks were among those sidelined on defense. Young wide receivers not getting a ton of playing timeIt was deep into the game before Malachi Dupre and Robert Foster even saw the field. McCarron threw to them. Austin Proehl got in and didn’t see a target. Brandon Reilly was in on the final drive.Brandon Beane shares on TVDuring the fourth quarter, general manager Brandon Beane joined the television broadcast to answer a lot of questions. While they weren’t hard-hitting with the interviewers wearing Bills logos on their shirts, he did share a lot of information. He said the following:Nathan Peterman helped Brian Daboll unpack his office.He’ll know the final 53-man roster by the time he goes to bed Friday and he will be joined by coach Sean McDermott when they tell guys they are cut.Saturday is the longest day of his year. They get the list of cuts from around the league at 8 p.m. and go through the nearly 1000 names. They’ll leave at 2 a.m., get back at 6:30 a.m. in order to notify the league office by noon on Sunday.He spent a lot of time talking about how things have slowed down for Josh Allen since his rookie minicamp.Quick outsRay-Ray McCloud left the game with four minutes left in the game with a knee injury.Siran Neal had ten tackles.Logan Thomas was in the game deep into the fourth quarter while Nick O’Leary started at tight end.Oh, the Bills beat the Bears, 28-27, and both teams kept calling timeouts and challenging plays late into the fourth quarter of the final preseason game. McCarron’s touchdown pass with 13 seconds left capped a feverish comeback by Buffalo.
