The New York Jets have struggled to protect Zach Wilson as of late and the Bills need to get more from their pass rush. In the first four games of the season, Wilson was sacked only 10 times but that number has gone up significantly over the past five games and has been sacked 23 times.
The Bills pass rush has also been trending in the wrong direction as of late and not sacking the quarterback as much as they were to begin the season. The defense is hoping for Von Miller to turn that corner and be the leader at the position but that responsibility may need to fall on Greg Rousseau.
The former first round pick had three sacks in the first four games but had gone four straight games since missing Week 5 due to an injury without a sack. He seemed to be close as he did have seven QB hits during that stretch but finally got a sack on Monday night against the Broncos.
Greg Rousseau can set the tone for the pass rush and if he is able to get pressure on Wilson, it will be a big boost for the defense.
