Marcus Jones

It is rare for a punt returner to be a player that the Buffalo Bills will have to specifically game plan for but Marcus Jones is one of the best in the league and if the Bills are not careful, he can change the game in a blink of an eye.

The Jets found this out the hard way when he returned a punt in the closing seconds that would win the Patriots the game. On the season, Jones currently ranks second in the league in average yards per punt return at 15.5 yards and is a player that given the chance will return it with only five fair catches on the season.

In the last two games the Buffalo Bills played the New England Patriots they didn’t have to punt once. While it did happen twice, this is not something the team can count on in this game and Sam Martin will need to do a great job in terms of directional punts that pin Jones on the sidelines but it will also be on the coverage team to ensure he doesn’t get any running lanes to break a big return.
