Now at 2-0, the LA Rams must travel east once more, this time to take on the beast from the AFC East, the Buffalo Bills.

The LA Rams are traveling away from Los Angeles, California, to that great football town of Buffalo, New York.  This week, the Rams take on the 2-0 Buffalo Bills, a team that appears to finally be in a position to halt the stranglehold of the New England Patriots on the division title. In fact, they have gone to great lengths to do so this year.

The weekend weather will be a bit warm, but the skies will be bright and sunny, giving everyone a good day for football. The temperature ranges will be falling over the next seven days., from 72 degrees to a game day high of 79 degrees and quite sunny. The forecast also calls for steady winds from the warm southwest from 15 to 25 miles per hour. Despite the great weather, this game will be played in an empty stadium as well.

Gotta dig that Allen to Diggs connection

The LA Rams will have that defensive secondary tested once again. This time, the Rams will need to neutralize the connection between quarterback Josh Allen and wide receiver Stefon Diggs. If the team manages to shut that down, the Rams will still need to stop WR John Brown and WR Cole Beasley. Should the team have succeeded in defending the pass, the Bills can still move the chains thanks to the running ability of dual-threat quarterback Allen and his ability to move the chains with bootlegs and scrambles.

The LA Rams offer a bit of a balanced offensive attack against the Bills this week. In fact, the Rams have rushed the ball 79 times for 344 yards and passed the ball 58 times for 542 yards. Even in the running game or passing game, the Rams distribution of carries and targets is fairly evenly distributed over the first two games.
