The Buffalo Bills and Dallas Cowboys are playing for pride on Sunday as both teams have been eliminated from playoff contention. While the game doesn't mean much around the league, a lot of players on both teams will be auditioning for 2016 and beyond. Knowing that quite a few reserves will see action on Sunday, here are four fast predictions:
The Bills get a pick-six off Moore
Kellen Moore has limited arm strength and the winds are supposed to be swirling at Ralph Wilson Stadium. Buffalo will likely stack the box against the Cowboys and dare Moore to throw on them. Buffalo's secondary is banged up entering the game so Moore could find success, but the Bills will Moore prove himself before they drop extra players into the secondary.
Look for the swirling winds at the Ralph to hang up at least one of Moore's passes and a Bills defender to return it for a touchdown.
Karlos Williams/Mike Gillislee/Tyrod Taylor carry the ball 30+ times
Buffalo will also look to use the ground and pound against the Cowboys on Sunday. While LeSean McCoy will be out of action, Williams and Gillislee have both proven that they can find success on the ground. The duo will both see 10-12 carries on Sunday. In addition to the backs, look for Taylor to take off on some scrambles as well. By the end of the game, the trio will record at least 30 carries.
Sammy Watkins scores a TD
The wind could limit the overall passing game on Sunday, but look for Watkins to still see his fair share of targets. In the last four weeks, few duos have been better than Taylor and Watkins and they'll continue to find ways to connect on Sunday. In the last four weeks, Watkins has six touchdowns. Look for him to add at least one more touchdown on Sunday.
Hughes records two sacks
Buffalo's defensive line has disappointed this season in terms of QB pressure minus Jerry Hughes. The defensive end is still going all-out while others look like they've mailed it in. Hughes has 29 pressures in the last seven games and he'll continue to have success against Dallas. On Sunday, Hughes will create havoc in Dallas' backfield and sack Kellen Moore at least twice.null
