Bills vs. Rams: Who's LA's X-Factor in Tonight's Game?
The Buffalo Bills season kicks off tonight in LA as Josh Allen leads his team against the defending Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams.
In order to gain a better understanding of what's new with last year's champs, we spoke with Ram Digest contributor Zach Dimmitt to learn more about what to expect from the Bills' opponent in tonight's game.
Dimmitt: Though LA has one of the best cornerbacks in the league in Jalen Ramsey, the Rams secondary was arguably its weakest unit last season.
The team remedied this by bringing back Troy Hill from the Cleveland Browns and drafting four defensive backs in April’s draft.
Decobie Durant and Derion Kendrick should see the most action in the secondary as rookies, making the group one that’s set to look the most different this season.
The Bills will be without Tre’Davious White, while the Rams will have Allen Robinson lineup beside Cooper Kupp for their first game together.
Buffalo will still have Jordan Poyer and Micah Hyde on the back end, while first-round rookie corner Kaiir Elam could likely have his hands full.
Dimmitt: It’s easy to say the typical coach cliches. They didn’t win the turnover battle, didn’t run the ball down their throat, etc.
Running back Cam AkersCam Akers missed all but one game in the regular season last year with an Achilles injury before making a miraculous return for the playoffs.
