Matthew Stafford

The final player that the Buffalo Bills should make a point of game planning for is quarterback Matthew Stafford. The Rams traded for Stafford last year after he put up big stats with the Detroit Lions but the team collectively didn’t have much success.

In his first season with the Rams it clearly was a perfect match as Stafford had one of the best years of his career with over 4,800 passing yards and 41 touchdowns. However, he did struggle in one area and this is where the Buffalo Bills could take advantage of.

Last year, Stafford had 17 interceptions and this led the league in that category. The Bills may be inexperienced at cornerback but also made significant improvements along the defensive line. If the Buffalo Bills can shorten the time Stafford has in the pocket, it could force some ill-advised throws that potentially could turn into interceptions.

This should be a close game between two very good teams but if the Buffalo Bills can enter this game with a good game plan for these four players, they should be in a great position to secure the win.
