5.) Greg Rousseau

In the first four weeks of the season, Greg Rousseau was consistently in the backfield and creating pressure. Since Week 5, it seems as if Rousseau has disappeared from the defense. He has only 9 combined tackles with no sacks since the Bills played against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

With the way Rousseau has been performing as of lately, in a defense that has been riddled with injuries in what seems like every week, he has not provided the impact on the edge that has been lacking as of lately from him.

The Broncos are allowing quarterback Russell Wilson to be sacked on average three times a game, which should be a confidence booster for this Bills’ defensive line and Rousseau. Even though the Bills have been able to rack up QB hits and sacks, the tape shows that the pressure has not been what it was in the beginning of the season.

This upcoming game against Denver needs to be a clean-up game, something that Buffalo has not had in the past month and it starts in the trenches by getting to Wilson.
