O'Cyrus Torrence

While Josh Allen will be responsible for a lot in this game, he can't do it alone and will need help from the other players around him. This game, the Bills offense might have to rely on two rookies to help them on offense and it starts up front with O'Cyrus Torrence.

The Bills drafted Torrence in the second round and he has had a tremendous start to the season. He would earn the starting job during training camp and has started every game this season at right guard.

For most of the season, Torrence has not looked like a rookie and has done a great job both in pass protection and run blocking. However, against the Patriots he definitely looked like a rookie and struggled.

It doesn't get any easier this week as the Bucs have an excellent defensive tackle in Vita Vea. I would not be surprised if the plan is to line Vea up across from the rookie and test him early. If Torrence is able to bounce back, it will be a big boost for the entire offensive line.
