4.) Lane Johnson vs. Leonard Floyd

Sticking with the trenches on the field, there are two more linemen to keep an eye on for both sides of the ball. Eagles’ right tackle Lane Johnson, much like Jason Kelce, has been dominant at his position for many seasons now. However, he will be presented with edge rusher Leonard Floyd, who has managed to rack up 9.5 sacks on the season. He has continuously been around the ball if he is not the one making it. Floyd is coming off a 2.5-sack game last week against the New York Jets.

The Eagles’ offensive line will have to protect Jalen Hurts against a Buffalo defensive line that creates pressure and collapses a pocket. This is one of the better matchups to look out for because you have an offensive lineman who has been great for many years and is still going strong and an edge rusher who is half a sack away from getting double-digit sacks. Look for this matchup when these two line up against each other on third downs.
