  • Both teams will go into the year as Super Bowl favorites as they enter the regular season

NBC analysts’ Rodney Harrison and Tony Dungy didn’t hesitate to praise both teams ahead of a sensational opening night of NFL action between the Los Angeles Rams and the Buffalo Bills.

Harrison was effusive in his praise of Josh Allen after what he saw during his visit to Bills’ training camp, saying he “loved” what he saw of the fifth-year QB.

Tony Dungy was also in a positive mood as he led the charge, saying he believes the Rams can repeat as champions – all thanks to coach Sean McVay.

“I like what I saw in Buffalo and it starts with Josh Allen. I like the confidence he radiated, the control over the attack on the field and also the accuracy when he was there,” said Harrison.

“Now you take James Cook back and add Von Miller to that defensive side, they’re going to be very dangerous. And I understand why they are the favorites in the AFC East.”

Last season, Allen led the Bills to the AFC Divisional round of the playoffs before losing to the Kansas City Chiefs in extra time. The way the Bills lost actually caused the NFL to change its post-season overtime rules so that both offenses now have a chance to hit the ball.

Even with the loss of offensive coordinator Brian Daboll, who is now the New York Giants head coach, Buffalo is still considered by many to be one of the favorites to win this year’s Super Bowl.

Defending champion Rams is also among the Super Bowl favorites and Dungy didn’t hesitate to say they could very well be back in the big game this year.

“They have a few things in their favor and it starts with their coaching staff. To me, Sean McVay is one of the most driven people I’ve encountered. In 2018 they went to the Super Bowl with Jared Goff, he said that’s not good enough, I have to get Matthew Stafford,” Dungy said.

“One Super Bowl win won’t be good enough for Sean, he’ll keep bringing people in, he’ll keep motivating them, they’ll be fine in that regard.”

Harrison, as well as host Maria Taylor, also seemed to agree that the Rams could very well compete for another Lombardi trophy.

“I know they lost von Miller, but I still think this defense will be excellent. Look at defensive coordinator Raheem Morris, he’s done a fantastic job replacing Brandon Staley,” Harrison added.

“Look at the continuity they have in that defense line, they still have Aaron Donald who is the best player in the world, you have Bobby Wagner who is a tackling machine from sideline to sideline, this defense will still be for real.”

Taylor would go on to add more to the Rams offense, saying: “May I also add that Matthew Stafford said this off-season that if you look at what he knew and understood about this team and the offense a years ago at this point, it’s such a small comparison to what he knows. So a year ago he played from behind, now he plays forward.’
