5.) Josh Allen does not get sacked

The Bengals are coming into this game with 21 sacks on the year, with defensive end Trey Hendrickson leading the team with 8 by himself. On the opposite side of Hendrickson is Sam Hubbard, who is second with 4 sacks as well.

The most sacks that the Bengals have recorded in a game this season is 6 against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 3. Their defensive line is able to provide a pass rush to help collapse the pocket which should challenge the offensive line of the Bills.

However, Buffalo has done a great job at protecting Allen this year with only allowing 12 sacks so far. In order for Buffalo to keep the Bengals’ offense off the field and not in control, the offensive line will need to keep Allen upright and be able to pick up any blitzes that could get thrown at them.

Bills’ offensive tackles Dion Dawkins and Spencer Brown have vastly improved this season compared to last year, and now it is time to show their worth once again by going up against edge rushers who can provide pressure at any moment.
