Buffalo Bills: 4 players who will have a better second half of 2020 season
These are four Buffalo Bills who are set up for a better second half of the season.
The Buffalo Bills have to be happy where they currently are at this point in the season. They are atop the AFC East at 7-2, 4-0 within the division and coming off their biggest win of the season, a 44-34 victory over the Seattle Seahawks.
They have gotten to this point with great play from players like Josh Allen, Stefon Diggs, and Jordan Poyer. However, there have been some players who were big parts of their success in previous seasons who have struggled over the first part of the season.
These are four players who have not had great starts to the year but could be in line for a much better second half of the 2020 season.
While the Buffalo Bills passing game has made tremendous strides, due in large part to the play of Josh Allen, wide receiver John Brown hasn’t been involved as much. Last year, Brown was the team’s number one wide receiver and had a career season with 72 receptions, 1,060 receiving yards, and six touchdowns.
It was unlikely that John Brown would be able to replicate that performance this season with the addition of Stefon Diggs. However, a knee injury combined with a decrease in targets has really limited what he can do.
He started the year well with consecutive games with over 70 receiving yards and a touchdown. However, since that stretch, he had two games with no receptions and it was only this past week against the Seahawks that he surpassed that 70 receiving yard mark with 99 receiving yards and one touchdown.
A common theme for the players on this list is injuries and John Brown was dealing with injuries during this stretch. In the game against the Seahawks, he appeared to be past it, and if that is the case, the speedy wide receiver could get close to replicating what he did last year.
