Will Tyrod Taylor continue his improvement after receiving a huge contract extension? How will Joe Flacco and the Ravens bounce back after a down year?
This week one matchup features two possible AFC wildcard contenders.
Kick off is set for 1:00 PM ET with QB Tyrod Taylor getting the start for the Bills against Joe Flacco of the Ravens.
Tyrod Taylor had a Pro Bowl season in 2015, throwing for over 3,000 yards and rushing for over 550 yards.
He kept his interceptions down last year and Buffalo should have two of the best skill players at their respective positions in RB Lesean McCoy and WR Sammy Watkins.
Taylor will have a tough time utilizing his playmakers against a defense that was 10th against the pass and 12th against the run last year.
Sammy Watkins will have a big game with his speed beating the Ravens safeties over the top.
With the Ravens thin at the CB position Robert Woods will have ample opportunities to make plays. Reggie Bush also brings another dynamic playmaker who can receive passes out of the backfield and return kicks.
How quickly can Joe Flacco return to form after suffering an ACL and MCL tear in week 11 last season? The release of Justin Forsett was mildly shocking on September 3rd, as he has been the teams main running back for the last few seasons.
Terrance West and Javorious Allen will carry the RB workload and hope to exploit the lack of speed from the Buffalo LB’s.
I believe the addition of Breshad Perriman will be key to the Ravens playoff push this year. He has the speed and quickness to get a lot of YAC yardage.
Rex Ryan always seems to put his defensive backs in the best position, and I believe Perriman will have a tough match-up today.
The biggest question for Baltimore is clearly the TE position. Dennis Pitta returned to practice this week but the glaring hole at this position will make the team one-dimensional in the passing game.
It was only a few seasons ago that Mike Wallace was considered one of the best wide receivers in the NFL.
After bouncing around with the Dolphins and Vikings he will become the go to playmaker on the outside n Baltimore.

Taylor and McCoy will make big plays in the first half to get off to a hot start, and having Reggie Bush spell McCoy will become effective in the second half.
Flacco will hit a few long bombs for scores but the defense won’t be able to keep up.
