Left tackle Dion Dawkins was far and away the Bills’ best player on Monday night, earning his highest grade of the season from PFF with an 89.1.
But Dawkins wasn’t the only offensive lineman grading out well.
The man to his right and Buffalo’s starting left guard Ike Boettger finished in the top-five with a 74.4 grade. Buffalo had success running the ball to the left. Devin Singletary ran the ball toward that side of the line six times for 30 yards.
Two defensive linemen flashed for Buffalo per PFF as well. Gregory Rousseau places second and A.J. Epenesa fourth.
Rousseau had four takles and Epenesa had one. Additionally, Rousseau had a tackle for loss.
Last is wide receiver Gabriel Davis. He hauled in Buffalo’s lone score during the first quarter. His 16-yard catch would be Buffalo’s only points until a late third quarter field goal. Davis finished with two catches for 30 yards.
