Denver Broncos predictions, week 3: Beating the Bills

Bills WRs must 'find ways to win 1-on-1 matchups'

In comes a red-hot Broncos team off of an impressive win, but at the same time it's a long trip for a Denver team that has a big-time matchup against the Oakland Raiders in Week 4.

That move cost the Broncos 15 yards and, eventually, three points. The defense did what the good defenses do - they stiffened in the big moments and kept the opposition out of the end zone.

It was obvious the Bills' meeting Saturday night with players, coaches and ownership focused on using Sunday's anthem for a chance to show unity. After putting pressure on Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor and taking him to the ground, Miller was called for a personal foul penalty.

Now 2-1, the Bills must keep their early-season success in perspective. The Broncos have not beaten the Bills in Buffalo since 2007. It capped a 10-play, 74-yard drive and put the Bills in front 7-3 with 11:41 left in the first half.

What does Denver need to do to get to 3-0? (The Bills' drive ended with a field goal to push their lead to 26-16.) This seems like an utterly ridiculous penalty to begin with, but it's even more so considering both Miller and Taylor were laughing throughout the exchange.

The Broncos enter with the top-ranked run game in the league, averaging 159 yards per game. His 126.0 passer rating was the fourth-best of his 32 games as Buffalo's starter.
