DaQuan Jones

The Cleveland Browns have one of the best running backs in the league in Nick Chubb. He entered Week 11 with the third most rushing yards in the league with 904 and the most rushing touchdowns with 11.

The Buffalo Bills for most of the season had shown significant improvement over last year in terms of their run defense. One of the reasons for that has been defensive tackle DaQuan Jones, who the Bills signed as a free agent this offseason.

He is a player that may not show up often in the box score but his presence helps other players on the team be successful, like the Bills’ linebackers. Jones is someone that clogs running lanes and keeps offensive linemen engaged to create clear paths for Tremaine Edmunds and Matt Milano to close on the ball carrier.

In the past few weeks, the run defense hasn’t been as strong and the Bills’ defense has struggled at key moments. They can’t afford that this week and if they are successful in limiting Chubb’s impact, DaQuan Jones likely will play a key role in that.
