What you need to know about Bills-Bills in Week 6
The Bills are 1-1 after their bye week, with the last two games coming against the Cowboys and Jaguars.
They’re coming off their second win over the Texans, but they’re still tied with the Jets for first place in the AFC East.
Here’s what you need the rest of the week.
What to watch for in Week 7: Bills-Cowboys – Thursday night: The Bills and Cowboys meet in a Week 7 game, and the Cowboys are 4-0 when they score first.
Buffalo has only allowed one touchdown to a quarterback this season.
This should be an exciting game, with both teams throwing for a combined 5,735 yards and 24 touchdowns.
The Bills defense has been dominant this season, holding opponents to just 12.2 points per game.
This week’s game is expected to be the first time the Cowboys have played in the Buffalo territory since they played in Foxboro, Massachusetts, in Week 5.
What’s at stake in Week 8: Bills at Cowboys – Thursday Night: The Cowboys have been on the rise after winning their last two road games to open the season.
The Cowboys are 11-1 this season when scoring first.
The first three games this season were against the Jets and Eagles.
If they’re able to stay hot, they could be a playoff team.
What they need to watch out for in the second half: Cowboys at Bills – Thursday evening: The first game of the year is a must-win for the Cowboys, who are 9-1 against teams that have not played in Buffalo.
The Eagles and Jets are both 7-3 against teams currently in the playoff hunt.
If the Bills are able to hang around in the final minute, this will be a pivotal game for them.
If not, the Bills could go home.
What you can expect in Week 9: Bills vs. Cowboys – Saturday Night: If the Cowboys can win this game, they would be the only team in the NFL to win the division in consecutive years.
The Titans have won their last four games at home.
The last time the Bills were in the division was Week 3 in 2015.
The Chargers also have won two in a row at home, but that’s only the second time they’ve done that since 2006.
What this game means: If you’re looking for a chance to watch the Bills, there’s no better place to do it than this week.
The offense will be led by quarterback Tyrod Taylor and wide receiver Sammy Watkins.
The defense is led by defensive end Marcell Dareus, who leads the NFL with seven sacks.
The secondary is led not only by safety Harrison Smith, who has 11 interceptions this season but also cornerback Byron Maxwell, who had a career-high seven interceptions last week.
Buffalo is also expected to have some of its top offensive weapons back this week, including running back Rex Burkhead, cornerback Ronald Darby, linebacker Ejuan Price, and safety Antonio Morrison.
It will also be the Bills’ first visit to Dallas since Week 3.
What are the odds?
The Bills have the second-most games of any team in a 10-team league, with just four games remaining.
The only team that is at home for more games than the Bills is the Vikings, who have played 12 in a 16-game slate.
That means the Bills have a 1.8% chance of winning this game.
The odds are 1.5% to 1.3% for each of the other eight teams.
The average number of wins for teams in a given league over a 10 year span is 3.6.
The highest winning percentage in a season for any team over that span was 6.8 for the Eagles in 2002.
The worst winning percentage for any club in a decade was 4.2 for the Jaguars in 2016.
This season, the Buffalo Bills have won 20 straight games and are 11 games up on the Colts for the NFL’s third-best record.
They’ll be looking to extend their streak of victories to 17 in a span of 10 games, the longest in NFL history.
The teams will square off in Dallas on Thursday, Nov. 30, at 8 p.m. ET on FOX.
