2. Ed Oliver sacks Devlin Hodges three times
One thing that really stood out the last time the Bills played on the big stage was the way Ed Oliver ate up the Cowboys offensive line. Touted as one of the best in the business, Oliver had his way with whoever tried to slow him down.
Now being fair, he did have Xavier Su’a-Filo against him for the majority of the game which was an advantage for him. Su’a-Filo is a veteran and has plenty of strength but he’s a backup and struggles with the speed rush. Then again, a lot of guards struggle with speed from the interior. And Oliver has speed to spare.
On Sunday night, look for him to put that speed on display once again. It’s not going to be easy for him as Ramon Foster will be lined up across from him and knows what he’s doing but Oliver’s talent is too much for anyone to contain on every snap.
Pair that with Devlin Hodges being an undrafted rookie (who may not be as aware as other quarterbacks) and the Buffalo rookie could be in for a big night.
Our second bold prediction is that he takes the Steelers offensive line by surprise and camps out in the backfield. He ends up being in line for another Rookie of the Week award by sacking Hodges three times in the game.
