Carolina(who has responded everytime to something we do, there's also a trend I noticed)

We lose to TB and we don't beat a tough Washington team, we could indeed be a looking at a losing run.

I don't have us beating bills. That game looks brutal.

The Buffalo game has what it takes to be what Houston and Detroit did to us the last three years. I could even see Buffalo getting a defensive TD. They can stop the run too so guess what? It's up to the defense? I feel Brees is just going to have very bad game here.

Washington...how does Brees respond after that game? Let's not forget about the elephant in the room....Gallette. Thomas isn't breaking free from tougher defenses this year and that one has Josh Norman, as well as a solid number two corner. That's also a game where I feel the offense is gonna need to score 30 points to win. This will be the game imo that decides what we are.

LA.....their offense is not that scary, but it's in LA. The bigger problem is Donald. Washington dictates this game because we have not won a road game in the Payton/Brees era against a swing opponent without a home game.

Carolina....again, they always respond after one game. There's a interesting pattern. 2014 was a blowout in each other's places; 2015 had Carolina winning two close games; Carolina scored better in NO; 2016 had two more close wins, but at home. It was higher scoring in NO by both teams. Well, we just went into Carolina and blew them out, where they have actually played worse offensively than in our place. Nobody looks at that, however, and that's dangerous. Cam's gotten by a lot of defenses in our league. We will see, but the history with Cam says enough. It has either been close games by both(final score at least) or each swapping routs. And we just did the first route, so...

I think we can win the next three games after that but if we split with both TB and Carolina and we don't beat Washington we are looking at 9-7 and depending what happens with Minnesota and Green Bay in the north(because Rodgers is not out for the season), that could knock us out.

I'm not drinking the kool-aid yet because the offense looks ugly the last three weeks(including the second half vs lions) and I cannot imagine the defense keeping up with QBs that can take advantage off opportunities. This defense has not played a Cousins, Goff, or Newton yet without the offense of ours doing anything(our O showed up opposite Newton; if it didn't, think he would have quit?).

Winning overlooks a lot of flaws I see watching the games, and I have been watching. Brees is OFF(throwing short passes for no gain just to avoid sacks as opposed to just throwing it away) and SP has given him often one chance to convert for each first down. The oline also is shaky. Remember what I said that this team maybe had to be a top ten defense to win. It's actually looking like that because this offense is just a bit too one note lately.

Lose to the bucs and run the risk of turning 5-2 into 5-6. We will see. the next few weeks will interesting.

Re: The First True MUST WIN Game

FYI - I'm watching this supposedly invincible Bills team getting rolled over on TNF by a Jets team that ain't much to brag about.

The Bills defensive backfield looks like it's getting ripped and beat down week after week.

What's worse is the Jets are running all over them.
I'm liking our chances in that game more and more after watching TNF tonight.

Re: The First True MUST WIN Game

I wish Winston was a full health for this game. Win or lose, it would have given us a real gauge of how good we really are. A win is a win but our last two were a lot more difficult than it should have been. There isn't a team left on our schedule that we can afford to overlook.

Re: The First True MUST WIN Game

Saints are a good team for 2017. They can only control what they can control. Just wait until they hit on all cylinders & play a complete (offense/defense/special teams) game.

I wouldn't be surprised to see Crawley on Mike. Ken was giving Benjamin (similar size as Evans) the business before he was injured in that game earlier this year. From what I've seen so far this year from Evans is that once you put your hands on him and get physical with him, he's done.

Re: The First True MUST WIN Game

Marshon Lattimore and Ken Crawley Vs DeSean Jackson and Mike Evans is one thing

But Cameron Brate and O.J. Howard are another
