Week 3: vs San Diego Chargers
Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. EJ Manuel has done a competent job so far this season, with 32/48 for 375 yards, two TDs and one interception thrown, with 10/25/1 rushing to his credit. The Bills lead the AFC East at 2-0 on the young season. Last week, Sammy Watkins shook off his sore ribs and posted a nice 11 targets for 8/117/1 receiving stat line - the next highest Bills' receiver were Fred Jackson (four for 2/27/0) and Scott Chandler (two for 2/27/0). We'll see if Watkins can continue as the star wide receiver in this third contest. He did have trainer attention to his ribs area during the game, so pay attention to Footballguys.com's Players in the News later this week if you are invested in Watkins, to monitor his practice participation before setting lineups for Week 3. The Chargers gave up 24/37 for 294 net yards, two TDs and zero interceptions (with two sacks for -10 yards) to the Cardinals on Monday night during Week 1. Last season the Chargers were 29th in the league allowing an average of 259 yards passing per game, with only 11 interceptions (tied for 26th in the NFL) and 35 sacks (tied for 23rd) generated. Seattle managed 17/25 for 180 net yards, two TDs and zero interceptions thrown at San Diego last week. To date, the Chargers rank 19th in the NFL, averaging 237 net passing yards allowed per game, with four TDs given up vs. zero interceptions generated. This is a sub-par pass D, folks. Advantage, Buffalo.

Our View: Brown still can't get ahead of Anthony Dixon on the depth chart. The trade of a fourth round pick for him is looking like a bust for the Bills at this early stage.
