Spencer Brown/David Quessenberry

The Buffalo Bills offensive line as a whole looked to be overmatched against a pretty good Steelers' defensive line. However, one position in particular struggled and that was at right tackle.

Spencer Brown would get the start, a spot he has held most of training camp and preseason, and didn't have an answer for T.J. Watt. There is no question that Watt is one of the elite pass rushers in the league and most right tackles struggle against him. The former third round pick had a rough stretch with two penalties in three plays that essentially wiped out any momentum the offense had on the second drive.

As for David Quessenberry, he was the second right tackle into the game behind Brown, and he also struggled against the Steelers pass rush. He couldn't handle the speed of rookie Nick Herbig and on one play completed missed him as Matt Barkley would be sacked.

The offensive tackle position as a whole has to be a major concern with Brandon Shell retiring this week, Tommy Doyle most likely done for the year after leaving the game in an aircast, and players like Spencer Brown and David Quessenberry struggling. It is hard to imagine how much the BIlls can actually improve it at this point and it might be on Ken Dorsey on scheming ways to help the position.
