Gregory Rousseau

The 23-year-old third-year player out of Miami grew a lot as a player throughout his two years with Buffalo, and having an All-Pro veteran like Von Miller helped a lot with his growth as well. Rousseau is coming off an eight-sack season, along with 10 tackles-for-loss in 13 games, along with being on the field for 56% of total defensive snaps.

Rousseau is a very impactful player on the field when it comes to both pass rush and run-stopping, as his 6'6 ft, 35-inch arms alone, along with his speed off the line make Rousseau a tough player to contain.

So far in the 2023 season, his stats on paper don't look impressive, but when watching Rousseau in both Bills games, he's part of many stopped runs and offensive plays. One of these plays came from a Rousseau-tipped pass, resulting in a Terrel Bernard interception.

Due to the Bills' depth at the defensive line, Rousseau is only on the field around 60% of the time. Though predicting that Rousseau will get a larger snap count as the season goes on, he will make his presence known quickly.

The Commanders' offensive line is one of their weakest points on the team, and because of that, we should expect Rousseau to have a breakout game. Though the Bills shouldn't think of this game as a cake-walk, but these under-the-radar players are due for a breakout game this Sunday.
