Buffalo Performance Review
Entering Week 10, the Bills confront an unfamiliar playoff-less reality, a departure from Josh Allen's norm.
Allen, the offensive linchpin, boasts 2,423 passing yards and 18 touchdowns in nine games, coupled with 6 rushing touchdowns.
Turnovers, however, mar this performance, with Allen accounting for 9 interceptions and 2 lost fumbles.
Despite James Cook's talent, the halfback remains underused, failing to breach 75 rushing yards since week 3.
While Allen leans on his legs rather than check-downs, Stefon Diggs shines with an impressive 70 receptions, 834 yards, and 7 touchdowns, steering the Bills' receiving game.
Other receivers, like Gabe Davis, show flashes, while rookie tight end Dalton Kincaid gains traction with 7 or more targets in the last three games.
Denver Performance Review
Guided by new head coach Sean Payton, the Broncos have endured a lacklustre start but have bounced back with two consecutive wins, including a notable 24-9 triumph over the Chiefs.
Emerging from a bye week, they aim to hover just below .500. Russell Wilson, though with fewer passing yards at 1,613, displays improvement with 16 touchdowns and a mere 4 interceptions.
Courtland Sutton leads the offense with 380 yards and 6 touchdowns, overshadowing Jerry Jeudy's 336 yards and 1 touchdown.
Javonte Williams, regaining health, must evolve into a pivotal offensive playmaker, lacking a rushing touchdown this season but contributing 1 receiving touchdown.
Each Team's Keys to Success
Key strategies for the Bills hinge on ball security, necessitating a turnover-free game from Josh Allen to rectify their 5-4 standing.
Allen's recent trend of five games with interceptions is worrisome, especially facing a Broncos offence that, while not exceptional, can exploit additional possessions.
Conversely, the Broncos must optimise Javonte Williams' role.
As a top playmaker, trusting him in a potentially high-scoring match can control the clock, keeping the Broncos offence on the field and restricting Josh Allen's opportunities against a susceptible defence.
Monday Night Football betting Tips
The Broncos are hitting their straps with one of the all time great coaches at the helm.

Take the Broncos getting the points.
