The manner in which Baltimore manhandled Buffalo in the season opener seemingly validates the Ravens' effort to address their shortcomings of a year ago.Joe Flacco threw touchdown passes to each of his three new wide receivers … phy-jersey , the defense was relentless in its debut for coordinator Don Martindale and special teams chipped in with a pair of field goals and a 51-yard punt return in a 47-3 rout Sunday.For one day, at least, everything went according to plan."It's great to see it unfold," running back Javorius Allen said. "It's like a flower, and it blossomed."The Bills, on the other hand, had virtually all of their fears come true. They got nothing from the quarterback position, couldn't move on the ground and never recovered after falling behind 14-0 in the rain before the game was 14 minutes old."We got off to a very bad start. It seemed like we came out flat," running back and team captain LeSean McCoy said. "Collectively, we didn't play well. It wasn't one guy's fault, it was all of us."Most of the scrutiny fell on starting quarterback Nathan Peterman, who went 5 for 18 for 24 yards and two interceptions before being replaced by rookie Josh Allen in the third quarter.And now, one game into the season Authentic Shaq Lawson Jersey , there's a quarterback controversy. Coach Sean McDermott will consider his options carefully leading up to Sunday's home opener against the Los Angeles Chargers."I'm going to look at everything," he said. "It's too early to go one way or another."There was plenty of blame to throw around after Buffalo failed to make a first down until the third quarter and was penalized 10 times for 100 yards."It was a full, total team effort there," he said.Some things we learned about the Ravens and Bills:BALANCED ATTACKAlthough the Ravens have always had a reputation for an aggressive defense, their new-look offense helped pave the way for a lopsided win.Six players scored touchdowns, including receivers John Brown , Michael Crabtree and Willie Snead, who were signed as free agents to upgrade an ineffective passing game."It's just awesome because, in my opinion, we have one of the best defenses in the league," Snead said. "Nobody really expects us to put up those kind of points and be as dominant on defense as we are."The defense appreciated the assist."To be a good team you need a good special teams, a good offense and a good defense," linebacker Terrell Suggs said. "You can't have one without the other two."NO O-LINEAfter losing veteran center Eric Wood and Pro Bowl left guard Richie Incognito Lorenzo Alexander Jersey , as well as trading away left tackle Cordy Glenn, the Bills hoped their revamped offensive line could jell in a hurry.It did not. The ground game sputtered and Buffalo yielded six sacks."There were times when I thought we could have been better up front," McDermott said.ONE DOWN, 15 TO GOLest anyone forget, the Ravens blanked Cincinnati on the road in last year's opener, a victory that ultimately proved meaningless in a 9-7 season."You can't tell anything by one game," Suggs said. "We got one in the can on our home field. It's only one game. We think we can get better."Despite playing without suspended cornerback Jimmy Smith and injured tackle Willie Henry, the Ravens were dominant on defense."The guys that played did a phenomenal job," Suggs said. "We have a couple of pieces out and we're looking forward to getting those pieces back."GETTING DEFENSIVEBuffalo was banking on a newly configured defensive line to limit the run, but the Ravens crossed up the Bills on a wet field by throwing the ball early."We thought they were going to try to run the ball more than they did, especially with the weather conditions," said defensive end Trent Murphy, an offseason free agent addition. "That was the biggest surprise."SACK HAPPYCornerback Tavon Young became the first Ravens defensive back to get two sacks in a game since Bennie Thompson in 1996.Young revealed that he hadn't had a sack since his freshman year at Temple."That's crazy Authentic Kyle Williams Jersey , isn't it?" he said with a grin.Five Buffalo Bills players to watch this week against the Minnesota Vikings The Buffalo Bills will square off with the Minnesota Vikings at U.S. Bank Stadium on Sunday— in what could be the toughest game of the year for the Bills. The Vikings are loaded with talent on both sides of the ball. Minnesota might just be the most complete team the Bills face all season. Each of the five players below have the potential to make a lasting impact on Sunday’s game. QB Josh AllenAllen is going to be on this list more often than not throughout the year, and for good reason. In his first NFL start last week against the Los Angeles Chargers, he struggled. That’s to be expected with a rookie quarterback as raw as he was coming out of college. There were some bright spots that got people excited for the future, and those moments will need to become more routine as the season progresses. For now, he must try to accomplish that task against the Vikings, who arguably have the best defense in the NFL.WR Ray-Ray McCloud IIIMcCloud has yet to play a regular-season snap for the Bills. With the random release of Jeremy Kerley, McCloud has a chance to get a lot of playing time on Sunday if his knee doesn’t keep him off the field. Since Allen worked with the second- and third-team offense most of training camp and preseason, McCloud and he have established the most chemistry out of the group of the receivers. It’s no guarantee he plays this week with his knee keeping him a limited participant in practice but, if he does, I’d expect Allen to look his way more than expected. McCloud also has that spark to bring to the special teams unit as a returner after Marcus Murphy looked like a liability returning punts last week. CB2Last week it was Vontae Davis for almost two full quarters before he called it quits on his career in the most unorthodox way possible. Now, who does that spot go to? Phillip Gaines?He looked like a lost puppy on the field when he got the start against the Baltimore Ravens. Maybe it’s Lafayette Pitts, who subbed in for Davis after his mid-game retirement against the Chargers. The second corner spot is a mammoth of an issue for the Bills this week as they face two top-15 receivers in Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen, with Kirk Cousins throwing them the ball. DT Star LotuleleiThe 50-million-dollar-man hasn't recorded a single tackle this season. I know … nes-jersey , he takes on double teams and clogs the middle, but not having a single tackle through the first two games is not what you want to see from the anchor of your defensive line. I don't want to say he's played poorly, because he hasn't—but he hasn't played like you'd expect someone signing a monster free-agent contract. LB Lorenzo AlexanderAlexander was, without a doubt, the Bills’ best defensive player against the Chargers. His tenacity to get after the quarterback in pass-rush situations is unlike anyone on the Bills defense, including Jerry Hughes. Alexander lines up in a lot of different spots on the front seven, but as an edge rusher he seems to be the most effective. The Bills’ pass rush will need to come alive like it did in the second half last week, if it’s going to make Cousins uncomfortable and throw the timing off for the Vikings receivers.
