Buffalo Bills: 4 X-Factors in Week 4 against the Las Vegas Raiders
These are four players who could be X-factors for the Buffalo Bills in Week 4 against the Las Vegas Raiders.
The Buffalo Bills for the second straight year have moved to 3-0 but last year lost in Week 4 to the New England Patriots. This year they are hoping to change that as they travel to Las Vegas to face the Raiders.
While the Raiders are 2-1, they are not going to be mistaken for the Patriots and also enter this game with a number of injuries to key starters. This is a game that the Buffalo Bills should be considered the favorite but they are not able to take this game lightly.
These are four players who could be that X-factor for the Buffalo Bills that help them secure the win.
The Buffalo Bills welcomed back both Matt Milano and Tremaine Edmunds last week against the Los Angeles Rams as they missed Week 2 against the Miami Dolphins. Their absence was certainly felt in that game but one area, in particular, was pass coverage on tight end Mike Gesicki.
Milano is one of the better linebackers in pass coverage and he for the most part was able to keep Tyler Higbee in check, who had only two receptions for 40 yards.
This week, the Bills face another excellent pass catching tight end in Darren Waller. The Raiders’ tight end could see even more work in a game where the Raiders are without Bryan Edwards and likely Henry Ruggs III, who was listed as doubtful this week.
If Milano is able to limit Waller’s impact then the Raiders are likely to have a tough time moving the ball through the air.
