The Green Bay Packers are going to be very inexperienced at wide receiver for this game as Allen Lazard has indicated that he is unlikely to play. The Packers do have Sammy Watkins back but are expected to lean heavily on rookies Christian Watson and Romeo Doubs.

However, Aaron Rodgers’ best weapon in the passing game might end up being running back Aaron Jones. He is one of the better pass-catching running backs in the league and on the season has had four or more targets in five of six games.

The Buffalo Bills’ defense is going to have to account for Jones coming out of the backfield and I would suspect that the responsibility likely will fall on linebacker Matt Milano. He is a versatile linebacker that has been making an impact in a number of different ways from dropping back into coverage, pressuring the quarterback, and getting through the line to make tackles behind the line of scrimmage.

It should be another busy week for Milano and if he has a big game, expect the Bills defense to have success.
