Cole Beasley stars on primetime

To the national media, the Buffalo Bills offense is run through Josh Allen and Stefon Diggs. Though, those who have followed this team will know how important Cole Beasley has been to this team so far through the season and last night.

Hauling in nice receptions for 130 yards and a touchdown, Cole Beasley, who has been an unsung hero all season, got his chance to shine Monday night. It seemed as if all night, Allen knew exactly where Beasley was going to be before he even got there. Whether Beasley was providing an open target in scramble situations for Allen who had been flushed out of the pocket or running such flawless routes that it would make Chad ‘Ochocinco’ Johnson speechless, he was on Allen’s radar all night.

This has been nothing new as it seems as Cole Beasley’s role for this 2020 team increases as the strength of opponents increase. Against both the Arizona Cardinals and Los Angeles Rams, he has racked up 100 yards or more and a touchdown in both contests.

Going forward next week where the Buffalo Bills take on the Pittsburgh Steelers, a team undefeated no more, the matchup will be the Bills’ offense versus the Steeler’s defense. In weeks prior the Steelers offense has seen to have lost a step as multiple players dropped passes against the Washington Football Team on Monday.

With that in mind, if the Bills can incorporate Beasley into the passing game yet again and their defense can play as they did against San Francisco, Buffalo has a serious shot at winning that game.
