Buffalo Bills: Key matchups to look forward to in each game in 2020
Week 14 – Ed Oliver vs. Steelers Interior OL / Tre’Davious White vs. Juju Smith-Schuster
For the second straight week the Buffalo Bills will be playing a primetime game, but this week it is a Sunday Night Football game hosting the Pittsburgh Steelers. The prominent matchup to watch for is Juju Smith-Schuster against Tre’Davious White, as it will be yet another test for White against a physical receiver.
Furthermore, the Steelers have a great interior offensive line including Maurkice Pouncey, David DeCastro, and Stefen Wisniewski. This means that Ed Oliver will be in for a tough challenge in Week 14. Expect Star Lotulelei and other rotational defensive tackles to eat up the double teams while Oliver is left in a more isolated battle on the line of scrimmage for penetration into the backfield.
Since the Buffalo Bills play similarly to the AFC North brand of football, it’s reasonable to assume that this game will be won with defense and special teams. The fight for the line of scrimmage could impact the outcome of this game greatly.
