After an embarrassing loss last Thursday night against the Jets, the Bills will run into yet another problem on their hands. Drew Brees and the 6-2 New Orleans Saints come into town and they have been red hot as a unit. After starting out 0-2, the Saints have won six straight and their offense looks invincible.

While the Bills have done better this season than most people expected, they are still facing simple problems that could cost them potential wins. At 5-3, they now face a tough portion of their schedule, and it will start by going up against the Saints.

Currently, Drew Brees has thrown for 2,214 yards and 13 touchdowns. The scariest thing about the Saints offense? All the weapons that Brees has. Michael Thomas, Ted Ginn Jr., Brandon Coleman, Coby Fleener, Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara. The Bills secondary will have their hands full, no doubt about it.

In the three losses that Buffalo has, the defense has only really failed in one of them, which was against the Jets. While the Bengals passing game hurt the Bills, it wasn’t anything compared to the Jets game.

Seeing that they couldn’t contain Josh McCown, we could see yet another underperforming game against Drew Brees.

The good news for the Bills?

The game is in Buffalo, which they have yet to lose on their own turf. Their defense also leads the league in forced fumbles and are second in interceptions. If they are able to pressure Brees, they can capitalize on his mistakes and come up with big plays.

The Bills have a good chance to win this game. Will it be tougher than the past ones? Absolutely, but don’t count out the Bills. Especially their defense because once they find their weaknesses of their opponents, they take advantage of it. This game can go either really well for the Bills, or we could be in for another week of the Bills suffering at the hands of an opposing offense.
