Buffalo Bills defensive line can pressure Russell Wilson

In addition to turnovers, the Buffalo Bills defense has not been able to generate much pressure on the opposing quarterback. In the first six games of the season, the Bills were averaging four sacks per game and ranking near the top of the league in this category.

The hope was that with Von Miller returning, this part of the defense should only get better. However, that has not been the case as the Bills are only averaging 1.6 sacks per game over the last three weeks.

This season, the Broncos have allowed 26 sacks and that is the eighth most in the NFL. However, over their last four games the pressure has been getting to Wilson more frequently with 15 sacks over that period.

If the pass rushers like Von Miller, Greg Rousseau, Ed Oliver, Leonard Floyd, and A.J. Epenesa it is going to take some pressure off the inexperienced linebackers and cornerbacks for this defense and set them up for most success.
