The Buffalo Bills will be visiting the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 4. While the Silver and Black are coming off their first loss of the 2020 season, the Bills are undefeated. One of the reasons for that is a couple of players on offense, quarterback Josh Allen and wide receiver Stefon Diggs.
There are other Bills players that could pose a problem for the Raiders
As important as Allen and Diggs have been to the Bills 3-0 start in 2020, there are three more players on offense that could give the Raiders a headache. This Buffalo team has thrown for 991 yards and ten touchdowns in three games. Diggs has accounted for 288 of those yards and has visited the red zone twice in 2020.
Diggs isn’t the only wide receiver the Raiders need to account for though. Their secondary will have their hands full due to the presence of Cole Beasley and John Brown. Beasley is second in the team with 15 catches for 228 yards while Brown has hauled in 10 receptions for 152 yards and two touchdowns.
Against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 3, Diggs had a season-low four catches for 49 yards because of cornerback Jalen Ramsey’s coverage. However, the Bills capitalized on that and they just simply targeted Brown and Beasley. They could do the same against the Raiders if they devote too much attention and resources to Diggs.
The Bills running game could make things difficult too
Besides Beasley and Brown, the Raiders also need to account for the Bills running game. They currently rank 24th in the NFL in that department with 311 yards. Even though running the ball hasn’t been the team’s focus on offense, they could give the Raiders some trouble as they have allowed 491 rushing yards and six touchdowns, good for 28th and 31st, respectively. Sophomore David Singletary leads the team with 157 yards, and he could have a field day at Allegiant Stadium.
As much attention as the Raiders need to devote to Josh Allen and Stefon Diggs, they must also account for Beasley, Brown, and Singletary if they don’t want to get the game out of hand and lose games in back-to-back weeks.
