Could a change in scenery be good for the Bills?

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – Jacksonville may not be considered the most intimidating opponent, but the Bills are going into their Week 7 match up with the Jaguars with a 3-3 record and a lot to prove to the fans back home. Here are four story lines to follow leading up to the game:

    • Change in Scenery: The Bills are perfect on the road this year, so playing the game overseas in London might help. They are 2-0 on away games, beating the Miami Dolphins in Week 2 and the Tennessee Titans in Week 5.
    • Who’s In and Who’s Out?: Quarterback Tyrod Taylor will sit to rest his MCL injury through the bye week, so E.J. Manual will get his second start of the season. He will not have receivers Sammy Watkins or Percy Harvin as targets. Watkins got injured last week, and Harvin did not travel due to personal reason.
    • Hello, Old Friend: This will be the first time the team will face the man who coached them last season. Doug Marrone is the offensive line coach for the Jags. His old offensive coordinator, Nathaniel Hackett, is their quarterback coach.
    • Ta-Ta for Now: The Bills are on a bye next week, before returning for a jam-packed November schedule. They play host Miami at the Ralph on November 8th, then play the other two AFC East teams, the Jets followed by the Patriots, in prime time road games.
