That sweet playoff victory is long gone and now has arrived the second matchup in hopes of becoming the AFC Champion and onto the coveted Super Bowl for the Baltimore Ravens. Tonight, they are the road team squaring off against the Buffalo Bills in Orchard Park, New York.
The matchups will no doubt draw excitement. For the Bills, Josh Allen comes in with an MVP resume, throwing for 37 touchdowns and 4,544 yards with only 10 interceptions. Allen is also a mobile quarterback who ended the season with 421 yards and eight rushing touchdowns (and one receiving touchdown). Stefon Diggs, his favorite receiver, will be a handful after ending the 2020 season with 127 receptions for 1,535 yards and eight touchdowns. If these two continue their production, the Ravens run may as well end here.
However, the Ravens come into this matchup with a set of defenders capable of slowing both players down. The Ravens front has become healthy, which contributed heavily toward their 20-13 victory over the Tennessee Titans in the Wildcard round. Now, they may be more focused on rushing Allen with Buffalo lacking a strong run game.
Though the weather may be a challenge, the Ravens may not fret much due to their run game being their choice of attack. If they can run for another 200+ rushing yards, they won’t need to throw it nearly enough for Mother Nature to factor in.
