Dion Dawkins/Spencer Brown

If Josh Allen is to get into rhythm, he is going to need some help from the players in front of him along the offensive line, particularly offensive tackles Dion Dawkins and Spencer Brown. Last week against the Jets, Allen would be sacked five times and it seemed like the Jets had most success going up against Brown.

It doesn't get any easier for the Bills offensive tackles this week with Maxx Crosby lining up across from them for the Raiders. Crosby is one of the best defensive ends in the NFL who had 12.5 sacks last year and started the 2023 season off with a sack on Denver Broncos' quarterback Russell Wilson.

Entering this game, and based on what he showed last week, it wouldn't be surprising to see the Las Vegas Raiders coaching staff focus on Spencer Brown and bring pressure off that side. It not only targets the weakest part of the line but would force Josh Allen to the left and have to throw across his body.
