Buffalo Bills vs Los Angeles Rams

Buffalo Bills 

Buffalo is coming off an 11-6 record and a 5-1 record in the AFC East. As the best-ranked defense in the NFL last season, the Bills gave up 272.8 yards and 17.0 points per game.

Even though the Bills easily beat the Denver Broncos and the Indianapolis Colts, the Bills have to admit that the preseason ended badly in their last game against the Carolina Panthers. The Panthers easily defeated the Bills 21-0. But overall, there were some positives to be taken from the preseason, as the Bills remained mostly healthy going into the regular season.

The Bills have reported some injury cases from their players. Some have already been confirmed not to be able to participate in the game against the Rams. They are Marquez Stevenson, Isaiah McKenzie, Tre'Davious White, Andre Smith, and Ike Boettger. However, Jordan Poyer, hampered by a hyperextended elbow, is anticipated to take the field against the Rams in the season opener.

Los Angeles Rams 

As the Super Bowl LVI champion, the Los Angeles Rams will host the NFL's regular season opener at SoFi Stadium. In last season's Super Bowl, the Rams were led by quarterback Matthew Stafford, who delivered a game-winning drive in the final minutes to win a championship in his first season as a Ram. Last season, Stafford had 41 passing TDs and now sits at 323 TDs passes for his career, the 12th most in NFL history.

Meanwhile, in the pre-season, the Rams did not perform well as they suffered two losses against the Cincinnati Bengals (16-7) and the Houston Texans (24-20). However, in preseason Week 1 against the Los Angeles Chargers, they won the game 29-22 behind backup quarterback Bryce Perkins.

It was reported that the Rams have seven players not available for this game with the Bills because of injury cases. Jalen Ramsey, Daniel Hardy, Quentin lake, Travin Howard, Logan Bruss, Van Jefferson, and Bobby Brown are some of them. As for QB Matthew Stafford, he has recovered from elbow tendinitis to be active for the season opener versus the Bills.
