Did anyone predict Buffalo Bills to simply humiliate the defending champions – Los Angeles Rams in the season opener? For sports media personality, Stephen A. Smith, he had enough evidence from the training and preseason built up, which justify the Rams’ beating of 31-10 to him.
On one hand, where the Buffalo Bills displayed–just why, they are the favorites to make a run for the Super Bowl; they overcame four turnovers to still post 31 points in an impressive performance. Who was to take most of the credit for this display? Bills’ marquee Josh Allen, who finished 26 of 31 for 297 yards with three TouchDowns.
Stephen A Smith had the most thought-upon approach as analyst discussed the Buffalo Bills vs Los Angeles Rams season opener saga on the latest episode of First Take, “Let me tell you what I learnt from last night’s game – Not a Damn Thing! That didn’t mean anything to me. The media knew what Josh Allen was going to do. Yes, we did. That number one.
Stephen A. Smith believes Buffalo Bills beating of Los Angeles Rams was only a lesson ‘coming-in-time’ for defending champions
On one hand, where Josh Allen had his seventh game with three TDs and a rushing touchdown, putting him into sole possession of third place on the category in the league’s history. The Buffalo Bills’ defensive line was a hardcore wall against each of Rams’ offensive play as they help the defending champions to just 3.7 per play with seven sacks on the night.
“We did know that Matthew Stafford was going to struggle a little bit as we spoke about the entire training and preseason talking about a potential elbow injury that was going on? Yes, we most certainly did. We did know that Cooper Kupp was going to be targeted more than three times more than anybody else, because half the time last season, Matthew Stafford acted like there was no other receiver on the Los Angeles Ram, we knew all of that from before.”
The only positive light for the Rams could be Cooper Kupp who had a decent evening in the blowout loss, finishing with 13 catches for over 125 yards and a TouchDown. This result left the Rams head coach Sean McVay be under .500 in a season for the first-ever time in his career.
