Greg Rousseau

The Buffalo Bills pass rush has been the strength of this defense this season as they ranked near the top of the league in sacks. In Week 7, they struggled to get pressure on Mac Jones and only sacked Jones once with four QB hits.

The ability to get pressure on the quarterback doesn't get any easier this week against the Bucs as they have allowed only eight sacks so far this season. That is the second fewest in the league and only one more than the Kansas City Chiefs.

Similar to Josh Allen, Greg Rousseau is the player who can really set the tone on the defensive side of the ball. The former first round pick looked like he was on the verge of having a breakout season with three sacks in two games against the Washington Commanders and the Miami Dolphins.

However, he would miss Week 5 due to an injury and has been held without a sack the past two weeks. This would be a great game for him to make that impact, especially with Ed Oliver dealing with an injury of his own and Von Miller still working his way back.
