Buffalo Bills 3rd quarter takeaways
Jackson Roberts – The James Cook game?
James Cook is definitely having one of his more complete games a Bill. He was labeled as a pass cataching back that could display some versatility in the leaugue and that’s on full display. Also, Matt Milano continues to be, in my mind, the best player on the Bills defense.
Mat Mlodzinski – Matt Milano is a force
For the second straight game, and third straight regular season game, Matt Milano came up with an interception. With Jordan Poyer and Micah Hyde aging, Milano is starting to become the star on the Buffalo Bills defense.
Buffalo Bills halftime takeaways
Jackson Roberts – Bills are in a rhythm
The Bills offense is clicking. They are doing a solid job of spreading the field, getting a bunch of guys involved. Stefon Diggs has been targeted five times and has caught all of them, to no surprise. On defense, Greg Rousseau has three tackles, with a few coming at critical moments. As a whole, they’ve taken Josh Jacobs out of the ground game with -6 rushing yards.
Mat Mlodzinski – Gabe Davis steps up
A lot has been said about Josh Allen needing to do more, by doing less. Gabe Davis made his life easier in the first half, leading the Bills with 3 receptions for 41 yards. While Davis may not be as good as other second options in the NFL, if he can perform like this more consistently, it will help Allen going forward, and free up Stefon Diggs even more.
Buffalo Bills 1st quarter takeaways
Jackson Roberts – Big play Bernard
The Raiders figured out how to make easy work of the Bills defense on their first drive. But on the second one, Terrel Bernard swung the tide, picking off Jimmy Garoppolo. That seemed to shift the momentum on the field. Buffalo has found a rhythm.
Mat Mlodzinski – Latavius Murray has entered the Bills RB room chat
Buffalo picked up veteran running back Latavius Murray in the offseason, and in the first quarter against the Raiders, Murray looked like the team’s featured back. Murray led the rushing attack with 3 carries for 15 yards and a rushing touchdown. That’s more carries than he had in the first game of the season against the Jets.
