Last week seemed to be one of those pivotal games in a season as the Buffalo Bills were at home against the Miami Dolphins. The Dolphins were coming off a 70-point game while the Bills were trying to continue their climb back to the top of the AFC East after a Week 1 loss to the New York Jets.

The Bills would play almost perfect football and win by 28 points against the Dolphins. They are now set to play a Jacksonville Jaguars team that had high expectations entering the season but hasn't really played to that level this season.

This game has the potential to be a trap game for the Buffalo Bills game but these are five players who might be flying a bit under-the-radar that could play big roles in helping the Bills continue their win streak.

5 under-the-radar players for Buffalo Bills in Week 5 against Jaguars

Latavius Murray

One of the surprises this season has been the play of Latavius Murray. The veteran running back doesn't see a lot of snaps but has taken advantage of the opportunities he does get.

Over the past three weeks, Murray has had at least five touches every game and a touchdown in two of those games. However, the reason Murray is on this list is for something that really isn't captured in the box score.

Among the running backs, Murray is probably the best in terms of blitz pickup and pass protection. The Bills offensive line will be trying to block Josh Allen, who leads the league in sacks, and former first overall pick Travon Walker.

It would not be surprising to see Murray on the field more to help Dion Dawkins and Spencer Brown slow down the pass rush off the edge and give Bills' quarterback Josh Allen more time.
