1.) Joe Brady vs. Sean Desai

When the Buffalo Bills made the move to fire Ken Dorsey and promote Joe Brady to interim offensive coordinator, they were looking for a different direction from the offense than what they were getting. Brady proved his worth against a Jets team that has a defensive unit that usually gives Buffalo troubles. It also does help that the Buffalo defense had three takeaways, as well as a takeaway on the opening kickoff to the Jets. Overall, the offense and Josh Allen looked way more comfortable in the pocket and did not overthink like he has had a tendency to.

This week going into Philadelphia, Brady will face a defense that is led by Sean Desai, who stepped in for Jonathan Gannon, who is now the Arizona Cardinals’ head coach. Desai has helped this defense stand their ground and not be a unit that teams can push over. The Philadelphia Eagles’ defense makes opposing offenses earn every yard, even though they have given up big plays here and there that have almost cost them a game. Bills fans will get a second look at a Joe Brady offense in Buffalo, but away from Orchard Park.
