You might not know much about the players on the Buffalo Bills, but that may change soon. The Bills are 4-1, including victories over Philadelphia and New England, and enter the game tied with the Patriots for the AFC East lead.
So, who are the key players behind this resurgence? Here is what Brian Galliford of Buffalo Rumblings says:
The big names offensively (Ryan Fitzpatrick, Fred Jackson, Stevie Johnson) drive the offense. The big names defensively (Marcell Dareus, Shawne Merriman, Nick Barnett) drive the defense. One guy that’s only now coming onto the radar is strong safety George Wilson, who just had a huge game against Mike Vick and the Eagles, and who is really coming into his own as a first-time starter at strong safety despite being 30 years old.
Buffalo is an opportunistic team that scores 32.8 points per game and leads the league with a +11 takeaway/giveaway ratio.
“They’re doing all the right things. They have an outstanding passing game, obviously, but good balance,’ said Giants coach Tom Coughlin. “They have beaten the outstanding teams. The New England Patriots, the Philadelphia Eagles are two of their four wins.”
The Giants are currently three-point favorites.
