Buffalo Bills' receivers vs. Cincinnati Bengals secondary

Another notable problem that the Bills had in their last year's divisional round loss was the lack of weapons able to get open. The Bengals' secondary was keying in on Diggs, meaning that someone else had to step up and get targets, yet no one could.

Now that the Bills have Kincaid, as well as James Cook as a viable part of the offense, the offense can look to get those players more involved as well. Being able to do this will put pressure off of Diggs and allow him to get open more often, sort of the same gameplan when the Bills faced the Bucs when 4 different receivers had at least 5 receptions. 

If the Bills can carry that offensive tempo, perform well in the trenches, and play good football in the secondary, there's a good shot that the Bills can come out of this game with a 6-3 record.
