The Buffalo Bills are trying to close out a perfect exhibition season, and by all accounts coach Sean McDermott is going to give Josh Allen and some of the other starters a crack at least a series or two.
Green Bay on the other hand is winless so far in the postseason, and haven’t even gotten the development they would’ve like to with Aaron Rodgers’ backup Jordan Love. The 2nd year QB played in week 1, but was out in game two. Love is expected to play Saturday afternoon.
Green Bay Packers
Is there such a thing as a wasted preseason? If so, Green Bay may be experiencing it in 2021. The offseason was successful in convincing Rodgers to come back for at least one more season in Titletown, but the Pack still don’t know what they have on the depth chart behind #12.
To be fair, Love did play in the preseason week 1 loss to the Texans, looking decent going 12/17 for 122 yards and a 22-yard TD pass. He was supposed to play into the 2nd half, but knocked his knee and was down after the 2nd quarter. Love sat out last week vs. the Jets.
There are two positive notes at the QB position for Green Bay heading into the exhibition finale. First, Love will be back in action for at least a few series and two, the unheralded Kurt Benkert has looked pretty good so far. Benkert has gone 8/12 and 18/25 in two exhibition games.
Green Bay has allowed 50 points in two preseason games, not a good stat heading to play a Buffalo team that hung 41 last week alone. The Pack defense did do a better job of stopping the run last week, holding the Jets to 103 on the ground after giving up 170 to Houston.
Allen is expected to get some snaps in the final regular season tune-up, and the new $258 million dollar man will likely take a few throws after sitting out the first two games. It’s what the Bills have the potential to do in the 2nd and 3rd quarter that makes them a -8 point favorite.
Mitch Trubisky faces an old foe as the former Bears QB knows Green Bay very well. Trubisky gained redemption last week while playing Chicago, going 20 of 28 for 221 and a TD. Trubisky had the Bills up 34-6 in the half in that game.
The Bills defense has also looked sharp this preseason, giving up a total of 9 points in the first half of two games. Love has some potential for Green Bay, but Buffalo was able to hold the explosive (albeit rookie) Justin Fields to 9 of 19 for 80 yards although he did add 46 on the ground.
4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Packers +8
8 points is just a ton in the preseason, even though Buffalo won by 26 last week. The Bills should have a solid 2nd and 3rd when Trubisky gets in there, but don’t expect much from Allen as he works out his first kinks of the preseason.
Believe it or not the x-factor in this game could be Kurt Benkert. He’s been accurate and has taken what the defense gives him, not to mention will be fighting for his NFL life in the 4th quarter against the bottom of the Bills depth chart.
