The Buffalo Bills hosted the Wild Card Round against the Pittsburgh Steelers and successfully defended their dirt in a 31-17 win. That game consisted of efficient and explosive offensive plays on the ground and through the air, as Josh Allen played almost flawlessly, scoring four touchdowns and no turnovers.
However, the Bills team did take another major hit with the injury bug, as many key players got hurt and had to rely on practice squad players to get the job done. The Bills are already thin on many positions on the defensive side, and one can only hope that some of these players can get healthy before the game against the Chiefs.
The players mentioned will be set on a scale from 1-10 of how important their availability would be for the team (1 being not at all, 10 being very important).
5 most important Buffalo Bills on the injury report for the Divisional Round
Rasul Douglas (10/10)
It's no secret to Bills fans that Douglas has been a great pickup for the team. Douglas was expected to fill in the cornerback one role with Tre'davious White being out for the season, and Douglas filled in those shoes very well. Since Douglas came to Buffalo after the trade deadline, he's been an absolute game-changer to help a struggling Bills secondary.
In just nine weeks, Douglas led the team with four interceptions (one of them for a touchdown), eight pass deflections, two fumble recoveries, and a sack and allowed a 40 passer rating in eight of those weeks. Douglas is set to return this Sunday, which will help against an elite quarterback like Patrick Mahomes.
