Sunday’s matchup between the Buffalo Bills and Baltimore Ravens is one that should be focused on what happens with the quarterbacks in the game. Tyrod Taylor was Joe Flacco’s backup for four years and now gets a chance to show his old team what he can do while Flacco is coming back from a torn ACL and MCL suffered last November. It should come down to which one of the quarterbacks is able to perform better to open the season. Here is a look at the matchup.
Buffalo had the best run game in the whole NFL last season with LeSean McCoy. McCoy will have a big role again this season, but will Rex Ryan take the wraps off of Taylor? He is poised to have a big season under center if he is able to get the ball down the field to Sammy Watkins. The Bills finished 8-8 last season and could make a serious run at the playoffs with the right breaks. This is the first game with Taylor back in Baltimore for the first time should be a key measuring stick on whether or not something special could happen this season for the Bills.
It was a disaster last season for the Ravens with their 5-11 record. They released starting running back Justin Forsett last week and will now turn to Terrance West and Buck Allen to lead their running game. While both have the potential to be serviceable, Flacco is someone who needs to have a huge bounceback season. He is a Super Bowl winning quarterback and hasn’t looked like one over the past two seasons. This would be a great chance for Flacco to start the season off right with a win and gets some confidence going moving forward.
