Should Rams Best Player Be Suspended for Bills Opener?
A shocking incident may lead to this player missing more than just the season opener.
The official NFL season kickoffs when the Buffalo Bills travel to face the defending Super Bowl Champion Los Angeles Rams on Thursday Night Football, September 8 at 8:20 pm. It could easily be a preview of this year's Super Bowl as both teams have loaded rosters. It's also an intriguing game as former Ram Von Miller is now with the BIlls and will make his return to LA. It also features an incredible quarterback battle of Josh Allen vs. Matthew Stafford. Both will be competing for the NFL MVP, with Allen being this year's favorite.

This is unacceptable and will almost certainly lead to discipline from the NFL. THe question is will it be a fine or suspension? It is highly likely he will miss the opener against the Bills after this.
