The Bills will try and win the way they always do. There’ll be a heavy diet of running on offense and a ton of pressure applied on the pocket defensively.
Unfortunately for the Bengals, both those things can exploit their two chief weaknesses. Specifically, Cincinnati owns the 24th-ranked run defense in football, while the Bills are the second-best team in the NFL at making yards on the ground.
Running back LeSean McCoy, dual-threat quarterback Tyrod Taylor and a powerful O-line can wear out the Bengals this week. Cincy needs big games from interior defenders such as nose tackle Domata Peko and middle linebacker Vontaze Burfict.
The Bengals’ best bet of nullifying the Buffalo rushing attack will be relying on their own offense to put up points. Their chances have been helped by quarterback Andy Dalton being able to practice fully after taking a beating during the loss to the New York Giants in Week 10.
Dalton has been in fine form this season. He’s thrown 10 touchdowns and just four interceptions. Wideout A.J. Green is still the Red Rifle’s favorite target. No. 18 is keeping pace at the top of the league’s receiving charts, per NFL on Twitter:
But Dalton also has tight end Tyler Eifert, running back Giovani Bernard and rookie wideout Tyler Boyd at his disposal.
However, Dalton won’t be able to connect with any of his weapons if the league’s toughest pass rush is allowed to swarm on him. The Bills have recorded 30 sacks, with Lorenzo Alexander leading the way with 10.
