Fearless predictions: Sean McDermott knows how to rattle Cam Newton

Bills vs. Panthers 3 key matchups to watch when Buffalo has the ball Bills vs. Panthers 3 key matchups to watch when Buffalo has the ball

Last week at the San Francisco 49ers they were 5 point favorites. Both the Bills and the Panthers pulled off wins in week one, however, neither win was particularly impressive, as both teams beat teams that most consider to be bottom feeders, the Jets and the 49ers.

And yet, it's fair to ask why Jenkins was cut by the Oakland Raiders ahead of the regular season? Yet even in the easy win last week, the Panthers quietly allowed Carlos Hyde five yards per carry, this after a season in which they struggled somewhat against the run. Mike Tolbert burrowed in for a one-yard score as well.

There's no reason to think he won't be close to that based on his ability to play running back, slot receiver and wide receiver. That also could mean fewer opportunities for Olsen and Benjamin.

"I like what we've got going on", he said. The Panthers success started up front as they were able to sack Brian Hoyer four times and register eight QB hits. So the evolution that the quarterback mentioned is accomplishing what coach Ron Rivera hoped it would when he first used the word evolve at the end of last season. Bell caught 45 passes on 66 targets during his 2013 rookie season. If you're in need of a tight end streamer this week, he's not a bad option.

There was a new normal. More often than not Benjamin and Olsen in particular, come down with the ball. Olsen's deal recently was restructured to add $2 million in incentives if he reached certain marks in receptions, receiving yards, per catch average and postseason honors. "It's changed. It's like a lot of the newer guys get a lot of the hype, you know like the last two years it was the kid from the Rams [Todd Gurley], Zeke [Elliott], he's like the new presence, you know he's getting it done". However, it is fair to wonder if a player with that kind of contract - and with that low of a snap percentage - is truly worth to keep around from a value standpoint past this season.

Sean McDermott and Brandon Beane have been building the Buffalo Bills in Carolina's image and they'll get a chance to see how they stack up against the original model this week.

Olsen didn't appear anxious on Thursday.

"There are a whole lot more things that are more important than a stat line", said Williams, who played 43 snaps.

So perhaps this works out in his favor. CB Greg Mabin was waived to make room. It's the first game. "Whatever's in that bucket, that's what we're focused on".

The Bills need a rushing touchdown for their 14th consecutive game with a rushing touchdown. "There is a tendency, I'd say, to make an over-adjustment, we just have to be smart with that".

Again, it's too early to determine what the new normal is for this offense. "Coach talks about being 1/11th and everyone doing their job, if everyone is doing their job, we're going to be a successful offense". "The biggest difference for [Newton] though, as opposed to Charles Johnson, is he's going to go through his other types of stuff".
