The 2022 NFL season is about to kick off, and what better place to do it than at SoFi Stadium in LA. Two high-powered offenses collide when the Buffalo Bills Face off against the Los Angeles Rams. The NFL is going to put its best foot forward in promoting this season opener, which means pushing the leading men under center and two dynamic offenses. However, the foundations of both of these franchises are the stingy stop units.
Given that promoted offensive coordinator Ken Dorsey is calling plays for the first time ever due to Brian Daboll leaving for the Giants, the Bills have a wider margin for error. Also, the Buffalo offensive line underwent a bit of a rebuild this offseason and is projected to take steps back from the 2021 unit that finished near the top of many protection metrics, which is why you should keep an eye closely on it.
Even the strongest offensive lines crumble against the Rams’ pass rush and will once again rank among the league’s best at getting to the QB. Head coach Sean McVay is very aware of the damage Bills QB Josh Allen can do and he’ll try to disrupt him early on, not allowing the Bills offense time to develop big plays, find its rhythm, or set the pace for this contest.
Part of that game plan will also fall on the L.A. offense, which is looking to get back to more balance in its play calling. McVay has never shied away from running the ball but an injury to RB Cam Akers last year took away a lot of the pop from the ground game, leaving Los Angeles to throw more.
With Akers healthy, L.A. is going to mix in plenty of handoffs, at least early on, as it sees what the Bills bring defensively while also playing keep-away from Allen. McVay rolled out a much slower tempo on offense in opening halves last season, ranked out 13th in seconds per play before giving it the gas in the final 30 minutes (eighth fastest).
