Matt Milano

Matt Milano was a first-team All-Pro selection for the first time in his career last season and picked right back up where he left off for this season. He began the season with back-to-back games with interceptions and in total has 27 total tackles and one tackle for a loss.

Grade: A

Terrel Bernard

The play of Matt Milano has not been a surprise for the Buffalo Bills but Terrel Bernard certainly has been, and in a good way. The Bills didn't know who would be replacing Tremaine Edmunds for most of the summer as Bernard missed the entire preseason due to a hamstring injury.

However, he would get the start against the New York Jets and has been a key playmaker in the middle of this defense. He had back-to-back games with an interception in Week 2 and Week 3 and followed that up with back-to-back games with a fumble recovery in Week 3 and Week 4.

On top of that he has two sacks and 29 total tackles and has done a great job replacing Tremaine Edmunds in the middle of this defense.

Grade: A
