5) Offensive Line

The offensive line did an excellent job on Sunday. Not only with the blocking for Tyrod Taylor and LeSean McCoy, but also shutting down defensive end Khalil Mack. Going into the game, shutting down Mack was one of the Bills primary goals for the afternoon, they not only achieved that goal but they virtually shut Mack down.

Mack finished the game with two total tackles and one quarterback hurry. The offensive line did a great job of protecting Taylor all day, allowing him to create some extra time with his legs and make the right throws. The Raiders ultimately could not get to Taylor as the Raiders defense didn’t record a single sack on Sunday.

The offensive line also did an exceptional job when it came to the running game, allowing McCoy to go for a league high of 151-yards on the ground including a 48-yard touchdown and six catches for 22-yards through the air.
