With their eyes on starting the 2023 NFL season 2-0, the Las Vegas Raiders once again hit the road in Week 2, travelling to Buffalo to take on the Bills. The Bills went into the 2023 NFL season as a potential favorite in the AFC, but stumbled against the New York Jets in Week 1, losing in overtime on a punt return for a touchdown.

You can expect a fired-up Bills team, as well as a pumped up Bills Mafia inside Highmark Stadium on Sunday, but the Raiders should be just as confident. This is a team that not many expected to win in Week 1, as they were a road dog, but they played just well enough to win, picking up a crucial road AFC West game.

Entering Sunday, there will be more challenges, especially on defense than there was a week ago, but if they can win these key matchups on both sides of the ball, they could be in good shape moving forward. Nobody expected the Raiders to start 2-0 when the schedule was released, but they have a great opportunity to do just that on Sunday.

Here, we look at some key matchups in the game.
