Vic Carucci of the Buffalo News believes the Bills need to dial up more pressure in Week 4 when they host Eli Manning and the New York Giants.
"After paying a heavy price for trying to pressure Tom Brady primarily with his defensive line, Ryan saw excellent results from frequently blitzing Ryan Tannehill when the Dolphins tried copying the Patriots’ quick-passing tactic last Sunday," Carucci said. The Bills defense sacked Tannehill twice in Week 3 and held the Dolphins scoreless for the first 39:21 of the game. The Giants have given up just three sacks so far this season, so Rex Ryan's squad will have to work to get to Eli Manning. The Bills D/ST is a top-10 fantasy option this week at home.

The Buffalo Bills are expecting quick passes from the Miami offense in Week 3. reports that the Buffalo defensive line was neutralized by the New England quick passing game in Week 2, and that the team expects more of the same from Miami on Sunday. "With the success that New England had our up front guys, the talent that we have up there, that is one of the things that we have to expect and prepare for," said LB Manny Lawson. The Bills did sack Tom Brady twice in Week 2, but were ineffective overall as they allowed 40 points and 507 yards of offense. Despite the Week 2 dip in performance, the Buffalo defense is still a quality group and is a startable Week 3 fantasy option against Miami.

Rex Ryan acknowledged the challenge of defending New England tight end Rob Gronkowski as the Buffalo Bills prepare to host the Patriots.

Ryan told the Buffalo News that "there will probably be some snaps when three guys are on him." Stopping Gronk is likely not going to happen on Sunday, but the Bills will do what they can to limit the tight end, who is coming off a three touchdown performance in Week 1. Buffalo held Indianapolis tight ends to a combined four catches for 22 yards in Week 1, and will hope to repeat their stout defensive performance on Sunday. The Bills D/ST is a good enough unit to start in fantasy leagues this week, despite the tough matchup.

Vic Carucci of the Buffalo News believes that rookie cornerback Ronald Darby could be a liability in Week 1 against Andrew Luck and the Colts.

Carucci notes that the Buffalo coaching staff should give Darby help from the Bills safeties, but shouldn't "be afraid to pull the plug on him." Corey Graham would fill-in if Darby is benched, but the Bills hope that won't be the case on Sunday. The Buffalo D/ST is a great fantasy option for the 2015 season, but isn't a recommended play in Week 1 against Andrew Luck and Indianapolis.

Buffalo GM Doug Whaley spoke very highly of his defense while talking with the Buffalo News, emphasizing the team's confidence on that side of the ball.

"We have no fear," Whaley said. "That’s how our defense is going to play. We’re good. We know we’re good." The Buffalo defense had a stellar 2014 season and is looking to continue to stuff opposing offenses in 2015. The Bills D/ST is currently the second highest drafted fantasy defense and should be strong once again under new defensive-minded HC Rex Ryan and DC Dennis Thurman.

The Buffalo defense will emphasize focus on pre-snap communication in their third preseason game.

"I think that’s going to be the main thing for us," DT Kyle Williams told New head coach Rex Ryan will work to improve on an outstanding 2014 season for the Buffalo defense that is being selected as the second D/ST off the board in fantasy drafts.
