The Buffalo Bills are back at Highmark Stadium for the first time in December and will be playing the Dallas Cowboys, who are playing better than anyone in the NFL right now. The Bills are entering this game 7-6 and a win over the Cowboys would be a big boost for their playoff chances.
Entering this game, the focus for the Buffalo Bills is to try and find a way to slow down this Cowboys offense. They have scored 30 or more points in five straight weeks and unfortunately the Bills will be doing it without two key contributors on defense.
The Bills have already ruled starting safety Micah Hyde out for this game due to a neck stinger suffered last week against the Kansas City Chiefs. This week, Taylor Rapp should get the start but with Hyde out, the Bills have safety Damar Hamlin active for today's game.
The other player is A.J. Epenesa, who had one of the biggest plays of the game against the Chiefs with an interception on the opening drive. However, his time on the field didn't last long as he played only four snaps all game due to a rib injury.
The Buffalo Bills have Kingsley Jonathan active this week in place of Epenesa but Shaq Lawson should see more playing time this week to make up for the absence of A.J. Epenesa.
As for the other inactives, there aren't really any surprises as Germain Ifedi and Alec Anderson have been inactive for most of the season. As for defensive tackle Poona Ford, has been a healthy scratch over the past few weeks as the Bills continue to lean on Linval Joseph, Ed Oliver, Jordan Phillips and Tim Settle.
