The Bills had a great 2020 season. They achieved that success with a stringent defense and a potent offense. Week one of this season showed no carry over from last year as they fell to the Steelers 23-16, but last week against the Dolphins, it was like old times. 

Buffalo enters this matchup with Washington after a 35-0 blowout of the Dolphins in Miami. Josh Allen threw for two touchdowns in the win while second-year running back Zach Moss ran for two touchdowns. As the Bills offense looked back on track, so did their defense coming up with six sacks including two by rookie first-round pick Greg Rousseau.  

The Washington Football Team is also coming off a win. Taylor Heinicke is now Washington’s starter after Ryan Fitzpatrick suffered a hip injury that landed him on IR. Heinicke led his team to their first win of the season last Thursday night as they beat the Giants 30-29. The 28-year-old quarterback who was set to be an XFL arm two years ago, threw for 336 yards against the G-men on 34-of-46 passing with two touchdowns and an interception. Heinicke also completed 7-of-his-9 passes in Washington’s game winning field goal drive.

The inactives are as follows: 

Washington: OG Saahdiq Charles, DT Matthew Ioannidis, TE Sammis Reyes, CB Darryl Roberts, DE Shaka Toney

Bills: DE Carlos Basham, RB Matt Breida, OT Tommy Doyle, DE Efe Obada, DT Harrison Phillips

Washington’s first win did have some luck attached to it. Kicker Dustin Hopkins’ missed his first attempt at the game winning field goal from 48 yards out, but there was a flag on the play. The Giants’ Dexter Lawrence was ruled offsides giving Hopkins another crack at the win, this time from 43 yards out. Hopkins nailed that one, sealing the win. 

The Bills are a 8.5-point favorite against Washington. The over/under is 45.5.
