1.) Leonard Floyd
The current sack leader of the Bills has been a game changer for this team. If he isn’t the one that gets the sack, he is near it almost every time. Coming into this game with 3.5 sacks, Floyd will be looking to add to that number and help cause some serious pressure on the Dolphins’ offense.
The biggest factor to keep in mind is that Floyd has only played over 50% of the defensive plays once this season because of the rotation that Sean McDermott likes to implement upfront.
Not only does Floyd have to make an impact in helping stop the run, but he will be tasked to provide quick pressure on Tua who has only been sacked 1 time this season. In addition, the Miami offense has the speed to do jet sweeps with their receivers so Floyd may also need to read the offense quickly before the ball gets past him.
If Floyd is able to provide a pass-rush and get in the face of Tua, this could be a game changer in favor of the Bills.
