Week 3 of the preseason will see the Buffalo Bills travel to Detroit to take on the Lions.
Buffalo has looked good so far this preseason, winning both games. On the other side, the Lions have lost both of their games and will be looking for their first win.
The Bills handled the Panthers pretty easily, winning 27-14 last week.
The offense for the Bills racked up a total of 373 yards. The leading passer was Matt Barkley, who went 8 of 10 with 110 yards passing and 1 touchdown. Josh Allen was right behind him, going 9 of 11 with 102 yards passing. Christian Wade made his presence known once again, catching 1 pass for 48 yards and scoring a touchdown.
As for the defense, they did a good job of limiting the Panthers from scoring much. They allowed 258 yards total. They also held the Panthers to 2 of 13 on third downs. Lastly, they intercepted a pass, which was return 70 yards for a touchdown. Overall, it was a very solid defensive performance and the Bills will look to do the same against a team who is projected to be worse than Carolina.
The Lions were blown out in their preseason opener, but were much more competitive in week two against the Houston Texans. The score to this game was 30-23.
The Lions ended up with 388 total yards on offense. Their leading passer was David Fales. Fales went 12 of 19 in this game and had 226 yards passing with 1 touchdown. The running game still needs some work as they had just 90 yards on the ground.
Defense is the area of concern for this Lions team. They were gashed for 410 total yards an overall did not look good. They did force two turnovers, but allowed the Texans to go 6 of 13 on third downs. I look for the Lions to focus on defense this week and to try and limit the Bills under 300 total yards.
