Can the Buffalo Bills’ defense contain Dalvin Cook?

In the past two games after the bye week, the Buffalo Bills defense has struggled to stop the run. In the first six games this season, Buffalo gave up 510 rushing yards but in the past two games, the Packers and Jets have gained 382 yards on the ground.

This week, the Bills will try to slow down Vikings’ running back Dalvin Cook who has 608 rushing yards and five rushing touchdowns this season. He has been one of the best running backs in the league for the past few years and this season has been no different.

While the potential return of players like Jordan Poyer and Matt Milano should help, this really is going to have to start up front and the Buffalo Bills need to get more from their defensive line, particularly the players on the interior like DaQuan Jones, Ed Oliver, Jordan Phillips and Tim Settle.
