Buffalo Bills: Takeaways from preseason win over Colts
Defensive Line looks great
The Buffalo Bills starting defensive line looked great against the Indianapolis Colts, a team with one of the better offensive lines in the game.
The starting four of Trent Murphy, Star Lotulelei, Ed Oliver and Shaq Lawson set the tone right from the start with a tackle for a loss, pass batted at the offensive line, and a QB pressure by Murphy in the first five plays of the game.
First round pick Ed Oliver especially made his presence known during the game, even though it may not show up on the stat sheet, with his ability to create penetration to disrupt plays. However, it was Lawson who made a statement as he looked explosive and should be in line to have a breakout year this season.
This Buffalo Bills defense with the addition of Ed Oliver, and the improvement of Lawson and Murphy, is going to create a lot of headaches for opposing teams this coming season.
