Buffalo Bills: 3 players trending up after win over Broncos in Week 15
Another player who has been playing well as of late has been nickel Taron Johnson. Entering the game against the Broncos, quarterbacks throwing in Johnson’s direction had a QB rating under 70 in three of the last four games. This is a tremendous improvement from the first part of the year where there was only one game in the first nine games where QBs had a rating below 70.
Last week, against the Steelers he had the play of the game when he returned an interception for a touchdown. While he did leave that game with a concussion, he was able to clear protocol and return to play against the Broncos.
The Bills secondary as a whole but Johnson is someone that has really started to elevate his play. He finished the game with four total tackles and one pass defended, which he had a great chance to intercept and likely would have found the end zone.
The Buffalo Bills play a majority of their defensive snaps in nickel and Taron Johnson is essentially a starter for this team. Hopefully, he is able to continue this play into the playoffs.
