Denver is coming here after getting a win in their opening preseason game. The Broncos ended up getting the win over the Dallas Cowboys rather easily, but the game did end up on the under. The final score in the win for the Broncos was 17-7.

Broncos Offense

The Broncos used 2 quarterbacks in the game and they combined to go 24/41 for 285 yards and 2 touchdowns. The best part is the Broncos had a great blocking scheme in place with no sacks allowed. Now, the downside is the Broncos had to rely on the pass attack with 22 carries and only 39 yards picked up in the game.

Broncos Defense

Denver had a very impressive look on the defensive side of the ball. The Broncos ended up giving up 175 yards and a touchdown while allowing Dallas to only go 21/36 in the passing attack. The rushing defense for Denver, much like the rushing offense needs to be worked on as the Broncos allowed 141 yards on 28 carries faced.

Buffalo is coming here after getting a nice win in the opening preseason week. The Bills ended up beating the Colts at home, but it was by a score of 27-24. Still, the win was impressive, but the Bills did have a lot of subs and string players in the game, instead of starters.

Bills Offense

The Buffalo offense did use 2 quarterbacks in the game. The quarterbacks went a combined 29/42 for 304 yards, but were picked off 3 times and sacked 2 times for 6 yards lost. When it came to running the ball the Bills carried the ball 19 times for 65 yards and 2 touchdowns.

Bills Defense

Defensively the Bills faced a total of 37 passing attempts and allowed 24 completions with 187 yards given up and 3 touchdowns, but did get a single pick in the game. The Bills did have a total of 4 sacks for a loss of 31 yards. With the rushing defense the Bills did give up 101 yards on a total of 26 carries faced.

Denver Broncos at Buffalo Bills Odds: Broncos +4.5, Bills -4.5

Over/Under Odds: 41.5

Broncos at Bills Pick: Buffalo Bills -4.5, Under 41.5

Odds from 

Buffalo is coming in with a fairly well balanced offense and are facing a Broncos team that cannot really run the ball. The lack of a rushing attack from the Denver Broncos is what will end up being costly as the Bills do have a good defensive backfield that will keep the Broncos offensive attack on edge. The Broncos lack of a good rushing defense will also spell disaster as the Bills do have a balanced attack that will bring home the win in the game here and cover. Now, for the total it is set at 41.5, but seriously the Broncos scored 17 in the opening week and now face a better defensive unit, I do not see the total being threatened in this game.
