Both teams are coming off a tremendous victory from this past week and now we are going to find out which team has a chance to answer the bell as playoff dark horses.
C.J. Spiller and Chris Johnson are two of the more electric runners in the entire NFL, but one has had a lot more success than the other.
The Bills may use two backs in Spiller and Fred Jackson, but the former ACC legend is posting some gaudy numbers.
CJ2K has just 408 yards of total offense on the season (3.3 YPC) without a single TD whereas Spiller already has 5 TD and over 500 yards of offense.
Throw in Jackson’s 200 yards of offense as well as this offense is much more balanced than a Titans squad that is relying heavily on its passing game.
Matt Hasselbeck will be looking for Kendall Wright, Kenny Britt, Jared Cook and Nate Washington against a Bills defense that is still giving up a bunch of yards.
The Bills have allowed 2nd most yards in the NFL (429.8 YPG) and points as well (32 PPG). The Titans defense is not much better, in fact they are worse.
Tennessee has allowed the most points per game (34 PPG) in the entire NFL and they are 28th in yards allowed per game (421.8).
The two defenses have been abysmal and there is no other way to put it, but the offenses are not the greatest in the world.
In fact, both quarterbacks have had issues with turnovers and their arm strength is among the worst in the league. Hasselbeck threw a few picks that were dropped by the Steelers and Fitzpatrick often threads the needle in underneath coverage since his arm cannot torch defensive backs down the field with ease.
Spiller was involved in the passing game and Stevie Johnson is the star that will continue to thrive against single coverage.
Pittsburgh’s corners were burnt to a crisp against Britt, Wright and Cook. The third down conversions were quite thrilling for an offense that needed a jolt with Jake Locker still recovering from his partially separated shoulder.
Fitzpatrick has been calm and cool in the pocket, so look for more of the same in what should be a game filled with a ton of points that will end up being one of the more entertaining games of the day.
