No DaQuan Jones, no Ed Oliver, huge problem

I'll take the hit on this one because I wrote earlier that the Bills' defense would be just fine without these two in the middle of the defensive line. I could not have been more wrong. The Bills' interior of the line was dominated. The Patriots totaled only 96 yards on the ground and none one on the Patriots carrying the ball had carry per average over four.

The biggest issue seemed to be a lack of pass rush though. There was no push up the middle of the pocket and the Bills were unable to force Mac Jones to hurry throws or disrupt his timing. They managed only one sack in the entire game. The NFL's leading sack team, against a dreadful offensive line, and they produced only one sack.
