2.) Christian Benford vs. Jaylen Waddle

Even though the big player on offense is Tyreek Hill, wide receiver Jaylen Waddle can easily be a threat in the offense for the Dolphins. Waddle did not play in Week 3 due to being in concussion protocol but is likely to play this Sunday in Orchard Park.

The matchup of the Bills number two corner against the Dolphins number two receiver will be a key matchup because fans know that the battle between Tyreek Hill and Tre’Davious White will be a back and forth fight. However, Benford going up against Waddle could be crucial for the Bills’ defense. 

Benford has been targeted 6 times this season and has only allowed 3 catches for 44 yards. If Waddle does indeed play and is able to get past Benford, this could open up the playbook for Miami and force a true one-on-one matchup between Hill and White. 

If Benford is able to hold his ground against Waddle and limit him, the Bills will be able to get creative on focusing on Hill and stopping the run.
