Buffalo Bills vs. Cincinnati Bengals Cheap Kelvin Benjamin Jersey , live fan chat Thanks to a miraculous 49-yard touchdown pass from Andy Dalton to Tyler Boyd on a 4th-and-12 play in Week 17 of the 2017 season, the Buffalo Bills snapped their 17-year playoff drought. Fans inore than $450,000 to the Andy and Jordan Dalton Foundation, and Dalton and his wife will make a donation to the pediatric department of the Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center before today’s 4 p.m. game between the Cincinnati Bengals and Buffalo Bills at New Era Field. Dalton and Boyd will most likely receive a warm ovation from the Kids Day crowd at New Era Field before the Bills and Bengals square off in the all-important third preseason game, the dress rehearsal for the regular season, which for Buffalo begins Sept. 9 in Baltimore. Aside from the budding friendship between Buffalo and Cincinnati, there are plenty of things to watch when these two AFC foes square off. After an impressive first two weeks of the preseason, rookie Josh Allen will make his first start under center for the Bills. Allen’s play has generated plenty of buzz, and he has flashed his potential in completing 18-of-32 passes (56 percent completion rate), for 176 yards with two touchdowns and a 92.7 quarterback rating. The defensive line was gashed by the Cleveland Browns’ starters for 7.3 yards per play on the opening drive Cheap Dion Dawkins Jersey , which resulted in a touchdown. The defense fared much better after the first drive, allowing 181 total yards (including only 76 passing yards) the rest of the game. How will linebackers Matt Milano and Tremaine Edmunds bounce back after a poor performance vs. Cleveland? How much will we get to see Tre’Davious White line up for a rematch against A.J. Green, who torched the rookie for 131 yards (on three catches) with a 77-yard touchdown reception in a 20-16 Week 5 setback in Cincinnati last fall. There are plenty of familiar faces on each side, with the Bengals featuring former Buffalo starting linebacker Preston Brown, who was let go after leading the league in tackles (144), and left tackle Cordy Glenn, who was traded to Cincinnati in the offseason. While former Bengal quarterback AJ McCarron is day-to-day with a shoulder injury, Russell Bodine, who has fallen behind Ryan Groy in the race to be Buffalo’s starting center, could greatly improve his chances with a solid outing against his former team. Go ahead and post your observations around the starters below Cheap Shaq Lawson Jersey , and be sure to check back later for a new open thread when the reserves enter the game.All-22 analysis: Buffalo Bills slot corner Taron Johnson The Buffalo Bills continue to show they can scout talent among defensive backs, selecting Taron Johnson in the 2018 NFL Draft. A fourth round pick, Johnson showed enough in the preseason to warrant a spot on the 53-man roster. Through five games, Johnson is making some noise as the starting slot corner. Let’s see how he did against the Tennessee Titans. Play 1The clip arguably oversimplifies things about the significance of Taron Johnson shadowing the slot receiver. Often the motion receiver is used to determine if the defense will be using man or zone concepts. With Johnson mirroring this receiver a casual glance would indeed suggest he’s in man coverage. Sean McDermott and Leslie Frazier rely heavily on zone work and naturally that’s what this ends up being. For Johnson’s part, despite switching which side of the field he’s on, he understands where his zone ends and passes off his initial receiver well and engages his second target successfully. A lot of moving parts go into a play such as this and the rookie proves he’s ready for it. Play 2Taron Johnson keeps his eyes on Marcus Mariota to read the play. Johnson doesn’t even let the ball leave Mariota’s hand before he’s correctly read the play and begins moving. From a scheme vs. scheme standpoint it would have been difficult to stop the play cold, but Taron Johnson does a great job limiting the yards after catch. Play 3Taron Johnson ends up covering Corey DavisNick Williams for the entirety of this play. DavisWilliams tries to find an opening, but Johnson is like glue. A good jam disrupts the initial timing and Williams can’t find a way to escape. Play 4Taron Johnson made his first career interception on this play. Johnson is in good position to watch Mariota and once again diagnoses the play right away. It’s subtle, but in the first angle, Johnson is leaning forward indicating he’s driving toward the ball rather than continue moving laterally with the coverage. The ball seems way ahead of the receiver and the interception is a result of poor ball placement from Mariota. However Bills Vladimir Ducasse Jersey , it’s Johnson’s initial drive forward that cuts off the receiver’s route, making Johnson the only player able to make the catch. Play 5If you were to distill the phrase “trust the process” and turn it into a play, this might be it. Before the play even begins the Titans have three receivers to be covered by Taron Johnson and Tre’Davious White. Johnson happens to get the double team but shows good discipline and trust in his team during his backpedal. As a result, both Titans are passed off to the the back end. Play 6There’ll be some growing pains for Johnson, and this week’s could have cost Buffalo the victory. All is well initially on this play as Johnson and Tremaine Edmunds are both in position to prevent Nick Williams from making a catch. Both bite on a secondary target for just a step and Williams runs right by Johnson. One wrong step may have been the ballgame. Instead, Nick Williams dropped the touchdown and the Bills improve to 2-3.
