This Sunday night, the Buffalo Bills host their former offensive coordinator Brian Daboll, the now head coach of the struggling New York Giants. Coming off a 25-20 loss in London, the Bills are 3-2 through five games and have a favorable matchup this weekend. The Giants have the 31st scoring offense in the league (averaging 12.4 points per game) and the fourth most points allowed per game at 30.6. The offense has turned the ball over 8 times, with quarterback Daniel Jones throwing 6 interceptions.

The Bills are quite the opposite, ranking as the third scoring offense with an average of 31.8 points per game and only allowing 16 points per game, which ranks in the top five of the league. The Buffalo offense is averaging 390 yards per game, while the defense is allowing 325 yards per game (the last two weeks they have given up 867 yards to the Dolphins and Jaguars).

Sure, the Bills on paper are by far the better team heading into this matchup but it all comes down to what is played on the field. The Bills have had a recent history of playing down to competition so they will need to come out strong against the Giants and not allow any room for momentum for a 1-4 Giants team.

Here are the five Buffalo Bills who need to step up in Week 6.
