4.) Travis Etienne - Week 3 (MNF)

It seems like that whenever the Bills take on the Jacksonville Jaguars, they always struggle against them. Last season, the Bills and the Jaguars played in London and it was arguably the worst game for the Bills in the 2023 season. They had multiple injuries (including the loss of Matt Milano for the rest of the year), and it was the start of the decline for the offense under former offensive coordinator Ken Dorsey. In addition, the Buffalo defense could not stop Travis Etienne at all. 

Etienne had a season-high 136 yards on the ground along with two touchdowns. It was Etienne’s first of two games; he managed to rush for over 100 yards in a game. The Bills are hosting the Jaguars this year so while there is a home field advantage, Etienne is still going to be a problem for the Bills’ run defense. Not to mention, Etienne can also catch passes out of the backfield.
