What to Know
The Buffalo Bills and the Los Angeles Rams are opening their 2022 seasons against one another at 8:20 p.m. ET on Thursday at SoFi Stadium. Buffalo is coming off of an 11-6 season with hopes of advancing further than the second round of the playoffs, where they were eliminated by the Kansas City Chiefs 42-36. Likewise, Los Angeles was 12-5 last year and, of course, capped off the postseason with a 23-20 win over the Cincinnati Bengals in the Super Bowl.
A couple of numbers to keep in mind before kickoff: The Bills were the best in passing touchdowns allowed, finishing the 2021 season and giving up only 12. But Los Angeles ranked second in the NFL in passing touchdowns, closing the season with 41 overall. These opposing strengths should make for an exciting matchup.
The point spread is more or less neutral, so fans should expect a close contest. We’ll see if the game is as close as the oddsmakers expect or if one of these teams has a surprise blowout in them.
