Denver Broncos vs Buffalo Bills

Denver Broncos

In the preseason opener, Broncos had dominated Dallas Cowboys with ten score difference, but Hackett’s players were going scoreless in the first, third, and fourth quarters. However, Broncos secured 17 points in the second quarter. Overall, Broncos recorded 285 passing yards and 39 rushing yards from 63 total plays to secure a 17-7 win.

Broncos tallied 19 first downs with no sack allowed and no fumbles lost, although they recorded inefficient plays with 5/13 third-down efficiency and 0/3 fourth-down efficiency.

Two quarterbacks Josh Johnson (16/23 C/Att, 172 Yds, two passing TDs) and Brett Rypien (8/18, 113 Yds) are likely to play against the Bills, while Johnson probably will be chosen as a starter.

Hackett will likely include several offensive players, namely Jalen Virgil (three Rec, 83 Yds), Kendall Hinton (three Rec, 53 Yds, one TD), and Seth Williams (four Rec, 29 Yds, one TD) as wide receivers. Meanwhile, for the rushing game, Stevie Scott (six Car, 20 Yds) and JaQuan Hardy (5 Car, 13 Yds) are predicted to start as running backs.

Injured RB Damarea Crockett, who has a knee problem, and G Tom Compton, who has a back injury, are among the 14 players to be excluded from the Broncos' line-up against the Bills.

Buffalo Bills

Bills recorded a tight 27-24 win against the Colts in their preseason opener and recorded 369 total yards, with 304 passing yards, and 65 rushing yards from 63 plays. In that match, the Bills’ offensive line-up allowed two sacks and lost two fumbles. Despite the win, Bills only managed to tally 18 first downs, 5/12 third down efficiency, and 1/2 fourth down efficiency.

McDermott is predicted to play Matt Barkley (18/24 C/Att, 224 Yds) as starting QB, while Case Keenum (11/18 C/Att, 86 Yds) will likely come off the bench.

For the offensive lineup, McDermott will probably include several names, including running backs Zack Moss (three Car, 37 Yds) and Raheem Blackshear (six Car, 11 Yds, two TD), and wide receivers Khalil Shakir (five Rec, 58 Yds, one TD) and Isaiah Hodgins (nine Rec, 77 Yds) as starters.

The Bills were confirmed to exclude G Ike Boettger with an Achilles injury as a PUP-listed player, and CB Tre'Davious White, who missed Sunday's training with a knee injury.
