Football is back and will be here to stay until February! Recently, it was week one for kickoff of the 2022-2023 NFL season. There were many nail-biting games this weekend, but Opening Night was special as former Super Bowl Champions, the Los Angeles Rams, hosted the Buffalo Bills for Thursday night football.
It was presumed that stars like Matthew Stafford and Cam Akers would come in and seal the deal. Although, it seemed that Josh Allen’s performance along with his right- hand man, Stefon Diggs, was too much for Los Angeles. The Bills easily defeated the Rams by three touchdowns, 31-10.
Both quarterbacks threw the pigskin extremely well; Stafford had 29 completions for 240 yards and one touchdown, while Allen had 26 completions for 297 yards and three touchdown passes. Allen even moved well on his feet as he had 10 carries for 56 yards and one rushing touchdown. Allen had better rushing stats than the backs of the Rams.
The difference maker was the outstanding performance of the Bills receivers. Jalen Ramsey, the five time Pro- Bowler and Super Bowl champion, came into the game ready to guard the swift Stefon Diggs. Ramsey allowed Diggs to have eight receptions for 122 yards and one touchdown. Two other rising stars for Buffalo, Gabe Davis and Isaiah Mckenzie, were able to score a touchdown a piece on Thursday night. Cooper Kupp of the Rams had 13 receptions for 128 yards and one touchdown, but his performance could not uphold Von Miller and the Bills defense. The defense caused Stafford to throw three interceptions in the nightcap.
Buffalo will have the momentum heading into this next week as they host the 0-1 Tennessee Titans on Monday night. The Los Angeles Rams will prep to host the 0-1 Atlanta Falcons, who fell short in a nailbiter to the New Orleans Saints on Sunday.
