It is no secret that the offense for the Buffalo Bills had some cleaning up to do this week for the home opener. After putting up 13 points in the first half and barely getting three points late in the fourth off of a bounce in field goal, the offense ultimately collapsed in overtime which led to a loss in overtime.

On the other side of the ball, the Bills’ defense looked solid and was able to keep the Jets’ momentum at a minimum up until Garrett Wilson’s touchdown grab with under five minutes to go in the fourth quarter that tied the game 13-13. 

Buffalo’s defense gave up only 140 passing yards on the night. The Jets’ two top receivers were targeted nine times combined and the Bills allowed seven receptions for 80 yards combined. However, the run defense was exposed, giving up 172 rushing yards which included 127 yards by Breece Hall alone. If this unit is able to clean up the run defense mistakes from Week 1 and can continue to limit the pass, it should give more opportunities to Josh Allen and the offense

As fans watch this upcoming game, these are three key players to watch on the Buffalo Bills’ defense.
