Buffalo Bills at Green Bay Packers: first half open thread
November 07, 2018 10:56PM
The Buffalo Bills could do themselves plenty of favors this week by earning a second consecutive road victory over an NFC North opponent. This week White Jeremy Kerley Jersey , the Bills take on the Green Bay Packers in a match-up of one-win teams. The difference is that Buffalo has two losses, whereas the Packers have one loss and one tie.Buffalo dismantled the Minnesota Vikings last week, ruining knockout pools and three-team teasers all over the country on their way to a 27-6 shellacking of the Super Bowl contenders. Meanwhile, the Packers lost their first game of the year, falling 31-17 to the Washington Redskins.A win for the Bills would even their record in what was a brutal September schedule. Three of their four games have been on the road, and the one home game was against a strong Los Angeles Chargers team. A win for Green Bay would bring them closer to first place in their division, which is currently occupied by the Chicago Bears.Running back LeSean McCoy is active and expected to contribute today for the Bills, which is great news for quarterback Josh Allen. Packers’ quarterback Aaron Rodgers is set to continue playing through a knee injury that has hindered him since week one. Keep it here for your in-game Rumblings, and let’s hope that this first-half thread is as fun as last week’s.Go Bills!2019 NFL Draft: college football Week 4 recap features shutdown corner, potential franchise tackle It’s always reassuring when top-tier players, that have been talked about throughout the entire college football offseason, play like it during the year. So many players get hyped as “the next big thing” or as “future first round locks” that its inevitable that some of them don’t live up to those monikers, which can be surprisingly frustrating as a draft-watcher. So when prospects do live up to the hype, you can sort of breathe a sigh of relief that their tape the previous year wasn’t a lie. Here are six prospects that lived up to their first-round potential during Week four of the college football season.Josh Allen Youth Zay Jones Jersey , ER (Kentucky)Kentucky was able to upset Mississippi State thanks to the disruptive play of the other Josh Allen. The 6’5”, 260 pound outside linebacker was constantly pestering Nick Fitzgerald around the edge and even made some positive plays in coverage. The senior tallied a sack, 2 tackle-for-loss, a hurry and a pass defensed. After bulking up in the offseason, it’s clear that the Kentucky Wildcat hasn’t lost any of his explosiveness.Justin Herbert, QB (Oregon)Although Oregon ended up on the losing end of a close game against Stanford, Herbert’s play was a huge bright spot for the team. Calmly going through his reads, the junior signal-caller patiently chose the correct receiver and delivered the ball with some zip time after time, going 26 of 33 for 346 yards with a touchdown. Although he was rarely pressured, his pocket-presence was on point as well. Jonah Williams, OT (Alabama)Analysts frequently decry the play of college offensive linemen, but Jonah Williams is a refreshing change of pace. Against Missouri, Williams was picture-perfect. Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa rarely has to worry about pressure coming from his blindside. In the run game, Williams was used on several pulls White Stephen Hauschka Jersey , showing that the coaching staff trusts his movement skills and ability to block in space.Karon Higden, RB (Michigan)Michigan socked Nebraska, 56-10, thanks to Higdon’s big-play ability in the first half of Saturday’s game. With two 40-yard runs in the first quarter alone, the fifth-year senior showed off his ability to quickly accelerate to top speed and hit holes with authority. Higdon’s efforts in pass protection were also noticeable, and might prove helpful in boosting his draft stock in the eyes of scouts.Noah Fant, TE (Iowa)Fant almost single-handedly kept the Hawkeyes in the game against Wisconsin. The athletic tight end only had three catches for 29 yards, but two of those went for touchdowns. Both touchdowns showed off the junior’s speed and soft hands. His quickness out of his breaks is rare for a tight end of his size. He continues to build a first round resum猫.Deandre Baker, CB (Georgia)Missouri wide receiver Emanuel Hall entered the game against Georgia as the SEC’s leading receiver, but Deandre Baker shadowed him and completely shut him down. Baker blanketed the wideout, who did not catch a pass all day. Pro Football Focus had him down for five targets, only allowing five yards after the catch. At this rate, there’s not much doubt that Baker will be a first-round draft pick.
