The NFL kicks off with a strong match-up this season with the reigning Super Champion Los Angelas Rams taking on the overwhelming favorite to win this year's Lombardi Trophy, the Buffalo Bills. Quarterback Josh Allen is ready to lead the Bills Mafia to their first Super Bowl title next February, especially with, fresh off of his Super Bowl run with the Rams, Von Miller now anchoring the Bills already tough defense. The Rams are still stacked with stars like quarterback Matthew Stafford, defensive end Aaron Donald and wide receiver Cooper Kupp, so the match-up should be nothing short of terrific. However, the Rams have something extra on their side that may scare you from putting your coins on Buffalo...
Who will win the Super Bowl? Well, you have to get there first. All of this year's season predictions are below, each division champion, wild-card teams and conference champions, plus the Super Bowl LVII winning team and score prediction!
After spending over a decade at the University at Albany, while hosting the New York Giants summer training camp, I fully realized the importance of the fan connection during time this crucial practice time. NFL training camps are often very inexpensive, if not free, to attend for most teams. Fans wait for hours in sometimes brutal heat to meet their favorite players and 99.9% of the time, the fan favorites deliver for their faithful fanatics, spending hours taking pictures and signing autographs throughout camp. That bond goes a long way for players and NFL organizations.
Coming off of a disappointing playoff loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in January, the Buffalo Bills didn't wait long to improve, making impact free agent signings, like star linebacker Von Miller and new Josh Allen weapon, wide receiver, Jamison Crowder. The team with arguably the most talented quarterback actually got better. Today on The Drive with Charlie & Dan, we had Dwain McFarland from Pro Football Focus (PFF), an analytics site that focuses on information useful for fantasy football. PFF thinks the Bills are pretty good this year.
The Buffalo Bills polarizing wide receiver, Cole Beasley, wants out of town. The former All-Pro target has asked his western New York NFL franchise for a trade. The Bills were knocking on the doorstep of the Super Bowl this year and are one of the odds-on favorites to be next year. Josh Allen is one of the most prolific passing quarterbacks in the NFL. Why would Beasley want out?
The one person that may benefit the most out of the Joe Schoen/Brian Daboll era with the New York Giants is quarterback Daniel Jones. The young quarterback has had a rough road as he enters his fourth season with his third head coach. That isn't a great ratio of stability, for one that plays a position that is supposed lead your $4.85 billion franchise. In order to make the most of this new opportunity, Jones reached out to the guy that did pretty well with Brian Daboll at his side in Buffalo.
Buffalo Bills fans are still not over the heartbreaking loss that ended their beloved team's season, but that hasn't stopped their awesome quarterback Josh Allen from continuing to be a class act. Even though he's not going to the Super Bowl, another hero is, thanks to him.
It's no surprise to Bills fans that their own Josh Allen is once again in the thick of NFL MVP conversations. This weekend's AFC Divisional showdown with his arch nemesis Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs has been anticipated since last January's 38-24 AFC Championship loss. This year may be different for Allen and Buffalo Bills fans. So what did future Hall of Fame quarterback Tom Brady have to say about Mr. Allen?
There were several questionable calls by officials towards the end of the Buffalo Bills vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers game on Sunday. Enough to rile up a fanbase for a while. Some would stew but others get creative. Their team may not be winning as much as they would like but the Buffalo Bills fanbase, known as the 'Bills Mafia' is at it again with one of their fundraising initiatives, with an emphasis on the first 3 letters, 'fun.'
Monday night, New York Mets first baseman Pete Alonso had just hit his 18th home run of the season. He was rounding 3rd base and as he faced his teammates in the dugout he began to do an imitation of a Pete Towsend guitar windmill. Alonso was indicating to his fellow Amazin's that they were rockin'. Pete Alonso likes to have fun and he's not afraid to show it. Following his second Home Run Derby Championship, the young first baseman is blossoming into a star. But is Pete Alonso one of the Top 5 Sports Stars in the Empire State, I don't think so. Let's take a look.
