Ten weeks into the 2014 season, here is what we know about the Buffalo Bills' passing offense:
- 25.1 percent of passes have been thrown in the direction of running backs.
- 23.7 percent of passes have been thrown in the direction of Sammy Watkins.
- Of the remaining 51.1 percent of throws that aren't thrown to a running back or Watkins, there's a 39.2 percent chance that it's headed toward one of Robert Woods, Chris Hogan, or Scott Chandler.
- Buffalo's passing offense might be a tad predictable based on those first two bullets by themselves.
Here are the target and receiving numbers for the Bills' entire passing offense through ten games. Note that the table is sorted by the targets per snaps played figure, and then note the position that the top two guys on the list play. In a way, the list is sorted by the priority placed on getting the football to specific players.
