Week 3: at Buffalo Bills

All RB vs BUF

FBG says: Tough matchup. Due to a number of factors, including his own Week 1 injury, Joe Mixon has yet to get off the ground here in 2019. He's managed just 27 yards on his 17 attempts, failing to produce anything either up the middle or on the edges. It hasn't just been a Mixon issue: dynamic backup Giovani Bernard (13 for 27) hasn't found any success either. The scoreboard has worked against both, but the primary culprit, as usual, has been the Bengals' weak play up front. If not for the sad-sack Dolphins, this line would rank dead-last in Matt Bitonti's Footballguys rankings. It's been without top blocker Cordy Glenn, who's still recovering from a concussion, and will proceed in the short term without left guard Michael Jordan. Even if Glenn can suit up for Week 3, this group will remain undermanned and vulnerable. Mixon will have to show up fully healthy and at his most dynamic to generate a big day against the Bills. Buffalo's run defense is generally a strong one, despite its Week 2 stat line. Saquon Barkley racked up 107 yards on just 18 carries, including a 26-yard touchdown that left multiple Bills swiveling their ankles. But it wouldn't be fair to condemn this group too much for failing to corral Barkley. Overall, it's improved noticeably into one of the league's toughest units. In Ed Oliver and Star Lotulelei, the Bills boast a dynamic set of tackles that's done a great job of controlling the interior. First-round rookie Oliver has been particularly impressive; he's an athletic gap-shooter capable of making plays in the backfield, while Lotulelei is more of a space-eater. Behind them, linebacker Tremaine Edmunds continues to improve, while Matt Milano remains dependable on the strong side. They're backed by an elite safety duo of Jordan Poyer and Micah Hyde, both of whom are more than capable in run support. This unit may struggle with consistency, and Joe Mixon is fast and nimble enough to present similar problems as Barkley. But on most weeks, this is a fairly prohibitive matchup, especially against opponents with front lines as weak as the Bengals'.
