Wide Receivers/Tight Ends

The Buffalo Bills were going to be without Emmanuel Sanders this week, who is dealing with a knee injury. However, this created an opportunity for Gabriel Davis to see extended playing time and he made sure that the opportunity didn’t slip through his hands.

The second-year wide receiver finished as the team’s leading receiver with five receptions for 85 yards and two receiving touchdowns. He was the only Bills receiver to finish with over 40 receiving yards however Stefon Diggs did have a receiving touchdown while Dawson Knox made a few key receptions throughout the game.

Grade: B+

Offensive Line

The Bills were forced to shuffle their offensive line over the past few days with Dion Dawkins and Jon Feliciano added to the Reserve/COVID-19 list. This forced the Bills to move Spencer Brown over to left tackle and have Cody Ford get a start at right guard.

The results weren’t great as Josh Allen was sacked four times and six QB hits with Spencer Brown probably struggling the most in Week 15. The rookie had a number of penalties called against him, including a taunting penalty that essentially erased a first down run by Singletary.

Hopefully, the BIlls get Dion Dawkins back for next week’s game or it could be another long day for the Bills’ quarterback.

Grade: C-
