Greg Rousseau

The player who will likely be joining Epenesa on the other end of the defensive line for hopefully a long time is rookie Greg Rousseau. The Buffalo Bills first round pick had a great preseason with two sacks and has continued to play at a high level in the regular season.

In the first game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Rousseau got the start opposite Jerry Hughes and finished only a few snaps behind Hughes. This past week against the Dolphins, Rousseau had the most of defensive ends and this speaks to the confidence the coaching staff has in the rookie.

This past week against the Dolphins was an impressive performance for Rousseau as he had two sacks and five total tackles. Leslie Frazier talked about Rousseau after the Dolphins game and spoke highly of the first round pick.

The play of Epenesa and Rousseau through the first two weeks should give fans confidence that the Buffalo Bills pass rush should be in good shape for a long time with these two on the edges.
