Buffalo Bills Week 4 Preview – Will The Loss Of Moorman Matter?
Earlier this week the Bills released Brian Moorman, arguably the best punter in the NFL. He had the best statistical season of his career in 2011 when he finished with an average of 48.2 yards per punt. He’s been in the Pro Bowl year after year. Moorman is averaging 45.2 yards per punt this season, but his 32.7 net average ranks 30th in the league. Will it hurt against The Patriots?
The Buffalo Bills have been very successful in large part due to their running backs, CJ Spiller and Tashard Choice. They will be tested yet again tomorrow and, they’ll have some help with the expected return of starter Fred Jackson, who went down to injury. It will be up to them to maintain the integrity of the Bills’ running game and I think they will.
The Patriots will be counting on Brady to bring the team back to .500 and avoid a third straight loss. I hate to say it but New England is livid after suffering two straight losses and they will be pumped up in Orchard Park tomorrow. I expect them to score four times in their first five possessions. I’m afraid the Bills will fall behind and not recover. Who do you think will win? And good news Brian Moorman fans, he has been picked up by the Dallas Cowboys.
