Wow,...in 52 years these teams have met just 11 times. And we'll see a familiar face leading the Bills,...Sean McDermott, former D-coor of the Panthers. Commentary to follow,...

First-year Bills head coach Sean McDermott built one of the league’s best defenses in Carolina, so it’s no surprise that Buffalo is having success. The Bills (2-1) currently have the league’s No. 1 scoring defense, and they are among the leaders in nearly every major defensive statistical category.

Buffalo retooled its defensive backfield over the offseason, and it appears to be paying off thus far. Every starter in the secondary is in his first year with the team. Safeties Jordan Poyer and Micah Hyde were free-agent additions; E.J. Gaines was acquired during training camp in a trade that sent receiver Sammy Watkins to the Los Angeles Rams and fellow cornerback Tre’Davious White was the 27th overall pick in this year’s NFL Draft.

The Bills are allowing 203 passing yards to opposing offenses this season, which ranks ninth in the NFL, and they are the only team that has not allowed a passing touchdown. Each member of the secondary has an interception and they have a defended a combined 19 passes.

Atlanta and Buffalo have played each other 11 times throughout the years, and the Falcons hold a 7-4 lead in the series. The Falcons have won four straight games against the Bills, the most recent victory being a 34-31 overtime victory at Buffalo in 2013. In their wins, the Falcons averaged 30.4 points against the Bills. In their four losses, the Falcons averaged 9.25 points.


This guy, Jordan Poyer is playing lights out after 3 games. And I'm tellin' ya'll, McDermott will be bringing some shoooo NUFF blitzin' come Sunday in Atlanta. In fact, while in Charlotte McDermott was almost blitz happy with not only pass blitzing but run blitzing too. Ahem, there is a difference. But anyway, if the Falcons O-line has any weakness it'll be exposed cause this defense is very good.

The Bills only loss this season so far was to the Panthers in an ugly 9-3 game. Obviously a defensive game and one which should cause concern for Falcons fans. The Bills are 2-1 and they know how important every game is when you be in a division with the Patriots.

Ugly football tis Sunday? hmmmm,...sho do look like it gonna be,...oh btw the Falcons will be wearing BLACK Sunday!
