I know we play the Raiders this week, but that team is such a joke it's not even worth mentioning what it will take to beat them. LT owns the Raiders. Put LT and 10 taco venders on the field and the Raiders still lose. Not even worth the time to discuss a team as pathetic as the Raiders, so I'm skipping to the following week against the Bills. Keys to beating the Buffalo Bills 1) Rattle J.P. Losman - Losman has struggled as Buffalo's starter and has shown he's more than capable of making mistakes, especially if he's facing a strong pass rush. Buffalo's offensive line hasn't done a good job keeping defenders off its quarterback and with Merriman back they're going to have a long day. 2) Force 3 and Outs - We can't leave our defense out there all day. Merriman will be back and the rest of the defense will be rested after an easy win over the Raiders, but with our high powered offense, we need them on the field as much as possible. 3) Win the Special Teams Battle - Turner has done a great job as kick returner. Need to make sure our kick coverage team consistantly prevents any big gains. 4) Get the ball to our playmakers - Need to get Gates the ball. He's clutch receiving the ball. Give the Bills a huge dose of LT. 5) Stay out of 3rd and long situations - We can get a first in 3rd an long situations much of the time, but if we get a lot of 2nd or 3rd and short situations, we will dominate. 6) Control the Clock - We score so quickly these days that we could experience one of the major problems Air Coryell had. If we score to quickly, it puts our defense on the field for to long. Mix some quick scores with long sustained drives and the Bills won't have a chance. Not like they realy do anyway.
