It’s been a long time since the Falcons were on the football field (dating back to last Thursday’s loss to New Orleans), but the wait is over, as they are set to face-off with the Buffalo Bills in Toronto. Before the Thanksgiving holiday, we broke this game down with a full preview, but it’s a very interesting spot.
The “neutral” venue (read: indoors) should allow the offense to flow nicely against the Bills, and the big challenge will be slowing down what is a potent running game. There’s nothing particularly “sexy” about either team, but whoever can capitalize on mistakes (especially by making big plays) should be in the driver’s seat here.
Our pals in Las Vegas have opened this game as a 3-point line in favor of the Bills, and while that looks low at first glance, it likely gives Buffalo very little in the way of “home-field advantage”. The crowd will undoubtedly be slanted toward the Bills, but not in a typically raucous NFL manner, and that simplifies things to the better team being favored to win a close match-up.
Hit us up in the comments below (used as a game thread!) and stay tuned for post-game analysis, including a full recap shortly after the game.
