Any concerns about the linebacker position have evaporated in short order as the duo of Matt Milano and Terrel Bernard continue to make plays week in and week out. Milano would lead the Bills in total tackles with 10 total.

Meanwhile, Bernard continues to make those big "splash" plays as he had a fumble recovery to go along with five total tackles. This was one of the biggest criticisms of Tremaine Edmunds during his time in Buffalo and in five seasons he had only five interceptions, two fumble recoveries and 6.5 sacks.

In only four games this season, Bernard has already matched Edmunds' career total in fumble recoveries with two, while also adding two interceptions and two sacks. If the second-year linebacker continues to play at this level, the Buffalo Bills defense is going to be one of the best, if not the top, defense in the NFL this season.
