2.) Leonard Floyd records two or more sacks

With the Jets’ offensive line, their weak spots appear to be on the outside with Duane Brown and Mekhi Becton. Brown was battling an injury last season as well as a year older at 38 years old, and Becton has been a bust so far but has had the worst luck when it comes to injuries. Either way, if Brown and Becton are not able to protect the outside of the pocket for Rodgers, this will give the Bills’ edge rushers to have a field day. 

Leonard Floyd was signed late in free agency by the Bills and he brings a pass rush that will replace the missing presence of Von Miller for at least the first four weeks of the season. He has recorded 9 or more sacks the last three seasons and with Greg Rousseau on the other side causing havoc, Floyd could easily be in the backfield a lot to pressure Rodgers.

Depending on how Floyd will be utilized, he could set himself up as the player that teams will need to game plan for.
