As legendary grappler Ric Flair is famous for saying: ‘To be the man, ya’ gotta beat the man.”

Following a season in which they clinched the AFC East for a second consecutive year, the team’s first consecutive division title since 1991, the Buffalo Bills have set their sights squarely on a Super Bowl title in 2022.

Standing in their way of said goal, however, are the defending-champion Los Angeles Rams.

While the Rams are confident in their ability to repeat as champions, they are highly cognizant of the Bills place at the top of their list of potential challengers. Despite Buffalo’s prowess on both sides of the ball, their primary offensive weapon is quarterback Josh Allen.

Allen’s abilities have certainly caught the Rams’ attention, especially that of Los Angeles’ defensive star Aaron Donald. The 31-year-old defensive tackle is looking forward to facing Allen and the Bills in the season-opener on Sept. 8 at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California. Donald recognizes the potential difficulties in defending the 6-5, 237-pound quarterback. In fact, he likened Allen’s toughness to former Pittsburgh Steelers signal-caller Ben Roethlisberger — with a greater amount of athleticism.
