Buffalo Bills: Stock Report after Week 9 win over Seahawks
These are four players on the Buffalo Bills that are trending up in recent weeks.
The Buffalo Bills had one of their biggest wins this season as they were able to outpace the Seattle Seahawks and win 44-34. While quarterback Josh Allen dominated the headlines, and rightfully so with over 400 passing yards and four total touchdowns, one of the reasons they were able to win was with some great performances from some unlikely players.
These are the four players on the Buffalo Bills that increased their stock the most in Week 9 against the Seattle Seahawks.
The player that increased their stock the most was linebacker A.J. Klein. The veteran was signed as a free agent this offseason and was expected to be a rotational player and be that experienced depth player.
However, Matt Milano has played in only five games this year and two of those games played less than 35% of the snaps. This has forced Klein into an expanded role and prior to Week 9, he has struggled. He has not shown the speed and athleticism to replicate what Milano brought to this defense.
In Week 9, Klein was the defensive MVP with five total tackles, two sacks, four QB hits, one pass defended and one forced fumble, which he recovered. That fumble essentially sealed the Bills win.
While it is only one game, it was great to see Klein show he can play at this level. This was especially performance considering Milano was placed on injured reserve and is going to be out for at least a few more weeks.
