The (1-7) Redskins still have their one and only win against the Dolphins. Outside of that, they have been among the worst teams in the NFL. From having to try three different quarterbacks to losing their top running back to an injury at the start of the season for the second year in a row, it has been a miserable time for the Redskins. The opposite has been true for the (5-2) Bills. The Bills did lose to the Eagles last week but have looked good outside of that. If the Bills would have won that game, they would have been 6-1. Every time the Bills have started 6-1, they have made the Superbowl. Sadly, they did not win, but they can hope to make it to the Superbowl with their 5-2 record. Currently, they sit at the top of the wild card race and seek to extend their lead. For odds movement and full matchup history, visit the Washington Redskins at Buffalo Bills matchup page.

Washington Redskins Analysis
There hasn’t been much to compliment the Redskins about this year with how miserable their season has been. Last week, they lost to the Vikings in which Dalvin Cook and Alexander Mattison ran all over them for 159 yards combined. Kirk Cousins also threw for 285 yards. The one positive from that game was their ability to keep the Vikings out of the endzone. They only scored one touchdown and were forced to kick a field goal four times. This is something they will need to carry over into this game.
If they want any chance of keeping this a close game, they will have to lock down defensively. The Bills have allowed the fifth-least amount of points per game in the NFL with just 17.4 points per game. I can’t see a scenario where the Redskins can score more than that average with the kind of offense that they have. The Bills have averaged just 19.1 points per game offensively which gives them a chance at the very least.

Buffalo Bills Analysis
I would be very surprised if the Bills manage to lose this game. They would have to beat themselves. Last week, they got embarrassed by the Eagles at home. They could not stop the run at all, giving up 218 total rushing yards mainly to Jordan Howard and Miles Sanders. The Eagles’ offense is much more talented than the Bills, but they will need to make changes as Adrian Peterson is in no way a bad running back. If they can stop him, they can virtually stop the whole Redskins’ offense.
The keys to victory are dominating the field offensively. The Redskins will not be scoring much with their offense, so the Bills should be focusing on scoring as much as possible. The Redskins’ run defense is weak, averaging 137.8 rushing yards against them per game, so Josh Allen, Frank Gore, and Devin Singletary should have a field day. If they are able to establish the run game this week, they will have no problems walking away with a 6-2 record.

Daily Fantasy: A Gorey Halloween Weekend
Frank Gore has been the more featured back for the Bills over the rookie, Devin Singletary. The Bills don’t possess a high scoring offense which is apparent in Gore’s two total touchdowns, but his yardage should be significantly higher this week. Last week, he had just 34 yards on 9 total carries. Seeing that the Redskins have allowed so many rushing yards, his volume should be increasing. Against the Patriots, the best defense in the NFL, he managed 109 yards on 17 carries which should be able to translate into this game.
