Which players will be key for the Buffalo Bills if they hope to come away with a victory in Week 14 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers?
There is no question that the Buffalo Bills have their back against the wall after their performance over the past two months. This is probably also the first game all season where it feels like their opponent is clearly playing better football.
The Bills are entering this game as the underdog but that doesn’t mean they should be written off. However, if the Buffalo Bills are going to pull off the upset, these are five players that will need to have big performances on Sunday against the Bucs.
5. Dawson Knox
Last week was a tough game for the Buffalo Bills’ tight end as he missed a few key plays that could have dramatically swung the outcome. However, it is hard to discount an entire season after one bad game in adverse weather conditions.
This week against the Bucs, the Bills are desperately going to need the Dawson Knox from earlier in the year. The athleticism he brings to the position puts pressure on opposing defenses and he has emerged as one of Josh Allen’s favorite targets.
According to CBS Sports, the Bucs have allowed 75 receptions, 700 receiving yards, and five touchdowns to tight ends. This is one matchup that could be in the Bills’ favor and if Knox has a good game, it could help the Bills keep pace with the Bucs.
