Pro Football Focus has released their player grades and game analysis after the Buffalo Bills fell to the New England Patriots 23-3.
It is a tough job deciphering which Buffalo Bills’ players played well in their game against the New England Patriots. Pro Football Focus does a good job of figuring that out with their individual player grades for every game.
The top grade Buffalo Bills player? Cornerback, Tre’Davious White. The defensive play-maker received an 86.4 game grade for his play Sunday against the New England Patriots.
Here is Pro Football Focus‘ write-up for Tre’Davious White
"“Continuing to live up to his first-round draft status, White walked away with a pick of Tom Brady and just two grabs allowed (one of which owed a lot to the excellence of Rob Gronkowski). The former LSU Tiger has had a year to remember and has already established himself as a building block for this secondary unit for years to come.”"
I sure hope that Tre’Davious White kept that intercepted ball he picked off of Tom Brady because it hasn’t happened often for the Buffalo Bills against that quarterback. White was injured on a questionable play from Rob Gronkowski, but he shut down receivers for a majority of the game. Buffalo should be very happy about their first-round pick.
Here are the top five Buffalo Bills’ game grades:
CB Tre’Davious White, 86.4 overall grade
LT Dion Dawkins, 82.0 overall grade
LG Richie Incognito, 80.5 overall grade
DT Adolphus Washington, 79.4 overall grade
RT Jordan Mills, 78.7 overall grade
The offensive line had quite the day on Sunday which earned them a majority of the top game grades of the Buffalo Bills. Tre’Davious White made his weekly appearance on the top-5 list.
Here is Pro Football Focus‘ write-up for Tyrod Taylor and his 50.4 game grade:
"“This was not the performance Taylor wanted to show people they are wrong about him. It was all going so well initially as the Bills marched down the field, but a bad decision assisted by being hit as he threw led to a pick, and it was all downhill from there.Outside of making plays with his legs Taylor couldn’t get anything going, and while two drop passes didn’t help he attempted just two passes further than 10 yards in the air and struggled with accuracy even then. This kind of performance is why the team wanted to get a look at Nathan Peterman.”"
Tyrod Taylor has definitely had better days than he had on Sunday. It will be interesting to see how the team handles the quarterback position moving forward.
We all wish Tyrod Taylor the best with his knee injury.
