Top 5 reasons Bills-Packers is a must-watch matchup


5. A meaningful matchup for Micah

For Bills safety Micah Hyde, this weekend's business trip to Green Bay will mark his first time back since he played for the green and gold. Selected by the Packers in the fifth round of the 2013 NFL Draft, Hyde spent four seasons with the team until he was picked up by the Bills during the 2017 free agency period. In his brief time in Buffalo, Hyde has already proven a standout on defense, earning Pro Bowl honors last season. The six-year vet will surely make the most of his moment against his former teammates.

4. Connecting the dots

Micah Hyde won't be the only player with ties to the Packers this week, however. After spending two years playing together in college at Cal, Bills veteran linebacker Lorenzo Alexander is very familiar with quarterback Aaron Rogers. Second-year man Matt Milano also has a notable connection to Green Bay safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, who he went to high school with in Orlando, Florida. Milano even served as Clinton-Dix's backup during his sophomore year at Dr. Phillips High School.

3. The Josh Allen show

In his road game debut as Buffalo's starting signal caller, Bills rookie quarterback Josh Allen kept things interesting. Not only did the Wyoming product impress fans with his arm strength, he showcased his shifty footwork and ability to pick up yards on the ground with a hurdle seen around the world and a Superman-like diving touchdown. This week, as he takes his talents to historic Lambeau Field, Allen and the Bills offense will have a chance to get things done against a Mike Pettine-led Packers defense.

2. Bills 'D' to heat up the North

Buffalo's defense showed up in a big way against Kirk Cousins and the Vikings Week 3. Looking like the real deal, the unit allowed Minnesota just 14 yards rushing as well as tallied four sacks, two forced fumbles and an interception. Equipped with difference makers like defensive end Jerry Hughes, who has been downright dominant through the season's first three games, the 'D' will work to bring the heat and stop the Pack in its tracks.

The Buffalo Bills will travel to take on the Green Bay Packers Week 4. In anticipation for the matchup, we take a look at the opponents through the years.

1. Let the good times roll

The Bills have made their presence known against the NFC North through the years, totaling five straight wins over the division. This week, the Bills are eager to leap out of Lambeau with their second consecutive victory of the young season. With a win, Buffalo will also improve their series record against the Packers to 9-4 all-time.
