Bold Prediction #3: A.J. Epenesa records at least one sack

The Buffalo Bills for the second straight game are going to be without defensive end Greg Rousseau. Fortunately for them, they have A.J. Epenesa, the former second round pick who has played well when given the chance to step into an expanded role.

Epenesa has had three games this season where he has played 50% or more of the defensive snaps, including last week against the Minnesota Vikings in place of Rousseau. In those games, he has 3.5 sacks and six QB hits compared to the six games where he is under 50% of the snaps and has zero sacks and no QB hits.

The Cleveland Browns do have a good offensive line and Jacoby Brissett has not been sacked much this year as they have allowed only 19 sacks all season. However, the Browns are going to need to put a lot of attention toward blocking Von Miller and this should create opportunities for Epenesa to continue his streak of at least one sack in games where he plays 50% or more of the defensive snaps.
