Von Miller

On the defensive side of the ball, this hopefully is the game that Von Miller gets back to making the impact he did earlier last season before his injury. The former All-Pro is still working his way back from a torn ACL but will be playing in his fifth game of the season on Sunday night.

Through the first four games, the coaching staff has seemed to be cautious with Miller's playing time as he has not played more than 27 snaps in a game. This certainly was by design to allow him to get back into game shape and get comfortable playing again.

However, the biggest key to this game is going to be getting pressure on Joe Burrow to help the inexperienced cornerbacks the Bills have with Christian Benford and Dane Jackson. The Bills are going to need the defensive line to set the tone early in this game and Von Miller is a player who is certainly capable of doing that.

Last week against the Bucs, Von Miller had his first QB hit of the season and hopefully he can build on that to record his first sack of the season.
