Patrick Surtain II

Last year, the Denver Broncos had one of the best defenses in the league and it was due in part to their secondary, which is led by Patrick Surtain II. He was their first round pick in 2021 and this past season had a breakout year and was named to the Pro Bowl and a first-team All-Pro.

Similar to Sauce Gardner, Patrick Surtain II is a young cornerback that is ascending at the position and has the potential to be in the conversation among the best at cornerback. The question in this matchup is how the rest of the secondary holds up against the rest of the Buffalo Bills pass catchers.

This game, the Bills have some mismatches in terms of who lines up against Gabe Davis, Dawson Knox, and Dalton Kincaid. It wouldn't be surprising that Stefon Diggs has one of his lowest target totals but it won't be due to Patrick Surtain II but more about game flow and where the Bills can create those mismatches in their favor.
