[BN] Blitz newsletter: What to watch for as Bills visit Vikings

This week in respecting the process ...

The Bills have been blown out in their first two games and are heavy underdogs on the road today against a Super Bowl contender in Minneapolis. (At least that's where we assume the team plane landed.)

Josh Allen will make his first road start against a stout Vikings defense and a proven passer, Kirk Cousins, whom many Bills fans coveted over the years. LeSean McCoy is reportedly unlikely to play because of a rib injury. Vontae Davis definitely won't play.

Pregame primer: Everything you need to know for the 1 p.m. kickoff and Jay Skurski's storylines to watch. Vic Carucci's five pregame takes starts with the Vikings' dominant defense.

Mark Gaughan's analysis: Bills don't want to add to Vikings' historic third down success, matchup breakdown and play to watch.

One-on-One Coverage: Bill Cowher talks coaching flirtations and Bills with Vic Carucci.

Inside the Bills: Nate Orchard's struggle was broadcast for all to see on HBO's Hard Knocks. Skurski profiles the team's new defensive end.

.

Necessary roughness: Bills defenders are unhappy with the NFL's attempts to "legislate contact of football," Jason Wolf writes.

Week 3 power rankings: "Dude walked out at halftime" gets you the bottom spot on Wolf's list.

Staff predictions: Nobody was bold enough to pick the Bills to win. But who would take them with the points?

Sports Talk Sunday: Vic and Jay join Adam Benigni at 10 a.m. on WGRZ. Watch a preview of the show here.
