The Buffalo Defense
Lombardi Ave: Buffalo has an outstanding defense and currently rank 5th against the pass at 212.8 yards-per-game. The Bills are coming off of an outstanding performance against the Denver Broncos and Peyton Manning that saw him only muster 173 yards with 0 touchdowns and 2 interceptions.
Aaron Rodgers is arguably the greatest quarterback currently in the NFL. Do you think the Bills can hold Rodgers to a similar game as Manning?

Dennis: Both Rodgers and Manning are similar in that they get rid of the ball quickly.
Buffalo was not able to get to Manning at all last game and this is one of the issues that will pose a problem for the Bills and their defensive line.
They are one of the only teams to be able to rush only 4 and get pressure which is why they were able to limit Manning on the yardage area and had 2 interceptions.
They weren’t able to capitalize on those turnovers which also hurt, but with QBs like Manning, Rodgers, and even Brady, getting the ball out quick is one of the keys to beat the defensive line.
Cameron: First off, I would agree that Rodgers is the best quarterback in the league right now.
He is doing things that no other quarterback is doing and is just leading them to win after win with incredible numbers.
That being said, this Bills defense has been astounding this year. I do not think that Rodgers will go for over 300, but I do think he gets a pair of touchdowns.
I also think that the Bills get one pick out of Rodgers, as Buffalo seem to be able to turn over everybody that they play.
