Sunday of the eighth week of the National Football League It will close with two organizations with different presents, but the common denominator: candidates for the Super Bowl.
The buffalo bills host the Green Bay Packers at Highmark Stadium.
Mounted on top of the American Conference, the Bills are coming off their bye week following a 24-20 win at Kansas City in Week 6.
Since the Bills’ last Super Bowl appearance in 1993, they’ve started a 5-1 season four times: 1995, 2008, 2019, and this year. They are looking for their first 6-1 record since 1993.
The Packers fell to the Commanders, 23-21, last week and they have lost three games in a row for the first time since Weeks 11-13 of 2018. They haven’t stumbled four in a row since Weeks 8-11 of 2016.
Aaron Rodgers and Josh Allen are two quarterbacks who belong to different generations, but who are part of the league’s elite.
In the background, Allen and Rodgers have a matchup that occurred in 2018 when in Green Bay the Packers erased the Bills 22-0.
Nevertheless, the Bills have never lost to the Packers in Buffalo (6-0).
Spread: Buffalo -10.5
Over/Under: 45 points
Moneyline: Buffalo -500, Green Bay +333
What you should know
Josh Allen has recorded at least four touchdown passes in multiple games this season. Allen totaled four touchdown passes in each of his two 2022 home games (weeks 2 and 5).
Last week was Josh Allen’s ninth career game with at least 300 passing yards, three touchdown passes and zero interceptions. Since he began his career in 2018, only two players have had more such games: Patrick Mahomes (13) and Kirk Cousins (10).
Since 2020, Allen has averaged nearly 321 passing yards per game in 10 prime-time outings, putting him in the top two in that category.
Allen vs defensive backs
The Packers’ defense has a tremendous amount of talent and was expected to dominate their side of the ball this season. And while Green Bay has the No. 1 pass defense in the NFL, their ability to stop third downs has been sorely lacking.
The Packers’ steals total is the second-lowest total in the league so far this season.
“They have one of the best defensive backs,” Allen said. “We just have to find unique ways to distribute the ball and get all of our guys involved.”
Allen has thrown for 1,910 yards and 17 touchdown passes.

The Packers will show an upward line after their consecutive losses, but unfortunately for them they will do so against a rival that is several steps above. While the Bills won’t cover the -10.5 line, they will take the victory by a touchdown.
