James Cook

James Cook didn't necessarily play badly against the Jets last week, but he wasn't as dominant that game compared to this game against the Raiders. Cook showed his growth as a runner, as he showed off his second-gear speed and agility on a majority of his touches.

Cook also played very physically, as he had some plays where he would keep fighting for yards after contact, which is quite unusual for a 190 lb player to do. Of course, Cook was dangerous in the passing game, but he proved that he can be an every-down back who can get 20+ touches a game, and if he does, this will be a breakout year for Cook.

Cook would finish this game with 123 rushing yards on 17 attempts, along with 36 yards from the air. The Bills will look to keep this momentum going as they will host against the 2-0 Washington Commanders this upcoming Sunday.
