2.) Dane Jackson

The Bills’ secondary is very limited and young with Tre’Davious White being out for the season. This past week, the Bills went out and signed a familiar face in 35 year old Josh Norman to the practice squad to bring a veteran presence at the position.

However, this is where the true “next man up” mentality comes into play. Cornerback Dane Jackson, who did not practice on Wednesday due to a foot injury, should be a key factor in this game when Daniel Jones drops back in the pocket.

Jackson has been up and down his entire career with the Bills. There are games when he looks like the best secondary player for Buffalo, and there are times when he is a liability. While the Giants do not have the best receiving core, the Bills will still need to press and keep the pressure on Jones and the Giants. Jackson’s foot injury will be something to monitor leading up to this game.
