Devin Singletary and Zack Moss combined 42 yards off the ground in Week 1. How will the bills handle that in Week 2?
ORCHARD PARK, NY – Week 1 is off the road, and Bills elope with a 27-17 win over the Jets. It has been a long, unique off-season due to COVID-19, so bills know that adjustments are needed.
The second week brings a new opponent in the Miami Dolphins and new challenges.
Since they were dominant as a unit against the Jets attack, some of the influential parts of the defense might not play out on Sunday. Two midfielders, Matt Milan and Tremin Edmunds, have fallen against New York. Milan with a hamstring injury and Edmunds with a shoulder injury. On Wednesday, Milan did not train, but Edmunds appeared on the field in an unconnected red jersey. It is not yet clear if both will be active opposite Miami.
Coach Sean McDermott is keeping calm and not providing much updates on the players other than their treatment.
And John Brown, the wide receiver, who commanded anti-aircraft targets, also did not train on Wednesday. The team said he had a leg injury.
Josh Allen was stunning against the Jets as he recorded high passing numbers and is expected to continue this week. It hit eight receivers, but the running game was slow. Devin Singletary combined with Zack Moss for 42 yards off the ground.
Coach McDermott did not lose hope in his youthful appearance but told the media they would work on a way to increase their role in attack for this week.
This will be Bills’ first away game of the season and the first time they will be able to play in front of an audience during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Cornerback Tre’Davious White, who has been on the fence about play this season, said he is enthusiastic about the fans on the field but cautious at the same time.
“If it’s safe, then I’m nonetheless,” White said. “But if they don’t follow protocol then no. If it’s safe then I’m all for having fans to let everyone see us as we play their team. It’s going to be exciting whatever it is, fans or no fans. If we prepare well and play how we train, I feel like we’ll be fine.” We go there and keep our energy up and encourage each other. “
White also went on to say, no matter what, it’s up to them to promote each other because even if there were a lot of fans, they wouldn’t be Bill’s fans anyway.
