3.) Dalton Kincaid vs. Eagles’ linebackers

The rookie tight end for the Bills has been sensational since Week 7. He has become unglued from the training wheels and looks more comfortable as the season progresses. In his last four games, Kincaid has been targeted 31 times, and has 26 receptions for 243 yards along with two touchdowns. With the way the Bills’ offense performed last week against the Jets, Kincaid was still a contributor, but the offense took a different route as far as the play calling (which worked out for them in the end).

Kincaid will be tested against a defensive unit that has given up a handful of big plays to opposing teams, can still be physical and play smash-mouth football. Josh Allen will not only have to avoid the big guys like Jordan Davis and Fletcher Cox, but will also have to make sure that Kincaid is open in the linebacker zone for the Eagles. It would not be surprising to see the Bills in a good amount of third down situations, meaning that Kincaid should be looked upon to move the chains.
