1.) Gabe Davis
One of the bigger under-the-radar stories is the comparison between Gabe Davis and Bengals’ number two receiver Tee Higgins. Aside from not getting into the endzone, Higgins led the Bengals in targets, receptions and yards (8 catches, 110 yards off of 9 targets). As the number two option in Cincinnati’s offense, Higgins was the x-factor in crucial moments. That was not the case for Bills’ number two wideout in Gabe Davis.
Davis had only two targets, but failed to bring in a catch. Meaning that Davis had no contribution to the Bills. One of the targets was a potential touchdown grab and there was an argument that Davis was fouled after potentially being face masked by the corner.
One of the issues that the offense has been facing is lack of involvement from weapons not named Stefon Diggs and Dalton Kincaid. Davis has been up and down this year and him not being a contributor moving forward will continue to hurt Buffalo down the stretch.
