The Buffalo Bills face their second consecutive NFC North opponent on Sunday www.billsfootballauthentics.com , traveling to Wisconsin to take on the Green Bay Packers. For the second straight week, the Bills are big underdogs. For the second straight week, the opposing team has far more household names on the roster than the Bills do.Green Bay is a talented squad that boasts one of the NFL’s best quarterbacks. However, he isn’t the only player on the roster worth watching on Sunday. Here are the players wearing navy, gold, and tan to watch on Sunday. (THROWBACKS ARE FUN!)QB Aaron RodgersIf the Bills want any chance at victory on Sunday, they’ll have to keep Rodgers in check. A knee injury suffered during Green Bay’s first game of the season hasn’t kept him from succeeding, but it has limited his trademark mobility. Rodgers has completed 66.4% of his passes on the season for 832 yards and 6 touchdowns. He has yet to throw an interception on the season. He does a phenomenal job of distributing the ball around to all of his weapons, but his offensive line does allow him to be hit. He’s already been sacked 10 times on the year. If Buffalo’s pass rushers can make Rodgers feel their presence, it will increase the team’s chances of a second straight upset.RB Aaron JonesGreen Bay’s number one running back was suspended for the first two games of the season for a violation of the NFL’s substance abuse policy, but he returned to action last week against the Washington Redskins. Although he only played on 17 snaps, he carried the ball 6 times for 42 yards and added 1 reception for 5 yards on the day. He is an extremely talented back who totaled 470 scrimmage yards on just 90 touches last season. While he was eased back into the lineup last weekend, head coach Mike McCarthy will probably try to deploy his more dynamic rusher in a greater capacity this weekend. WR Randall CobbThe jack-of-all-trades wide receiver may not put up the eye-popping numbers as consistently anymore Buffalo Bills T-Shirt , but he is still a versatile, dangerous weapon. He can play outside, he can win matchups in the slot, and he can come out of the backfield; he’s even capable of serving as a running back at times. Cobb is second on the Packers in receptions (17), receiving yards (195), and yards per reception (11.5), and given his ability to line up anywhere, he could be used to exploit favorable matchups wherever the Packers see fit. Look for them to try to isolate him on any of a trio of inexperienced players in Tremaine Edmunds, Taron Johnson, and Ryan Lewis this weekend.LT David BakhtiariBills defensive end Jerry Hughes was a one-man wrecking crew last week, as he totaled 15 quarterback pressures all by himself. Bahktiari is the man tasked with slowing Hughes this week, and he will have his hands full. If Green Bay chooses to leave him on an island with Hughes, Buffalo’s top edge rusher should be able to use his superior athleticism to beat the sixth-year tackle around the edge. If they need to give their left tackle help Buffalo Bills Hats , they risk allowing one of Buffalo’s other defensive linemen (Trent Murphy? Kyle Williams?) to run rampant. Bahktiari will need to win one-on-one against Hughes.LB Clay MatthewsSpeaking of pass rushers who can completely take over a game, the Packers’ veteran linebacker is still among the league’s best sack masters. While much of the focus on Matthews so far has been on two dubious roughing the passer calls, he is still a force to be reckoned with defensively. He’s off to a slow start this season, totaling only 4 tackles and 0 sacks (thanks to the aforementioned penalties), but a failure to account for Matthews will surely lead to a long day for Josh Allen. The Bills will have to keep Matthews in check on Sunday.Buffalo Bills opponent fantasy football preview, week 4: Geronimo! The Buffalo Bills play the Green Bay Packers this weekend, and for the second consecutive game, the Bills will be big underdogs on the road. The Packers have plenty of offensive firepower, and there are some favorable match-ups for them on offense.The Bills have settled down defensively since being outscored 75-3 through the first six quarters of the season. However, one trend that has emerged so far is that whichever wide receiver isn’t covered by Tre’Davious White will have a big day against Buffalo. For fantasy football purposes, this is the kind of information that is good to know when approaching waiver pickups, but also when making start or sit decisions. For this week, there are a few Packers who match up well against the Bills.WR Geronimo AllisonI fully expect Tre’Davious White to stick with Davante Adams Buffalo Bills Womens Hoodie , and since the Packers like to move Randall Cobb all over the field, I imagine he’ll be working out of the slot often—leaving rookie Taron Johnson to stick with him. That leaves Allison, a 6’3” wideout from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, to work against Phillip Gaines or Ryan Lewis. While Lewis was good last week, Minnesota Vikings wideout Adam Thielen managed 14 receptions for 105 yards in the Bills’ 27-6 victory. While some of Thielen’s success was based on game flow and a soft defense in the fourth quarter, it was clear that quarterback Kirk Cousins was avoiding Stefon Diggs, who was covered by Tre’Davious White. Aaron Rodgers is a better quarterback than Cousins, but he will probably look to Allison more often than Adams this week thanks to the match-up.QB Aaron RodgersSpeaking of Rodgers, if he’s on your roster, you’re starting him this week. Unless you selected Patrick Mahomes II late to be Rodgers’ backup, you probably don’t have another quarterback who’s better than the future Hall of Famer. Rodgers has struggled in his career against Buffalo, completing 36-of-71 passes (50.7%, his lowest number against any team) for 440 yards Womens Customized Buffalo Bills Jerseys , 2 touchdowns, and 2 interceptions. As strong as Buffalo has been against the run this year, I’d imagine that the Packers will decide to go to a quick passing game that helps Rodgers avoid the pass rush and keeps the offense on time. This should give him plenty of chances to rack up yardage on the afternoon.TE Jimmy GrahamEven though rookie middle linebacker Tremaine Edmunds has been improving rapidly, and despite Edmunds being a fantastic athlete, Graham is still one of the best tight ends in the league. The veteran is approaching 900 catches on his career, sitting at 879 coming in to the game, and his experience could pay off against the raw Edmunds. This match-up will be a big one to watch, but it’s one I imagine the Packers look at and feel confident in exploiting. If Graham is available—or if he’s on your roster already—he should be in your starting lineup this week.
