The Buffalo Bills will look to keep their home record perfect on the season while the New Orleans Saints look to win their seventh straight game after starting 0-2. The Bills are coming off a mini-bye week after getting embarrassed on national television. We will be watching these five Bills who can make a difference in this game.

WR Kelvin Benjamin

The newly-acquired star receiver will make his Bills debut Sunday. With Zay Jones out of the game, the Benjamin-Taylor connection is important as ever. Tyrod Taylor said earlier in the week that if Benjamin is 1-on-1 with a defender, the ball has to go his way. More than likely, Benjamin will be followed by rookie cornerback Marshon Lattimore, who is a current front-runner for rookie of the year with his lockdown corner play.

TE Charles Clay

Clay is coming off a knee injury but before he was injured, he was Taylor’s favorite target on all areas of the field. Clay should see a lot of balls thrown his way on Sunday as Taylor has missed him over the past few weeks. Clay may be coming back on a pitch count since he recovered from his injury in just 4 weeks, but Nick O’Leary has been solid in his stead.

T Jordan Mills

Mills has struggled all year and Sunday is another big test. He will be going up against Cameron Jordan who plays over the right tackle most of the time. Jordan has been one of the better pass rushers in the NFL over the past few years and Mills could struggle. I would expect the Bills to use tight ends or backs to chip on Jordan to slow his pass rush a bit and help out Mills.

LB Preston Brown

The Saints rookie running back, Alvin Kamara, has caught the ball out of the backfield for big gains a lot this year and that is not Preston Brown’s strong suit. Brown has been a liability in coverage this year and it shows. Matt Milano and Ramon Humber could be the coverage guys on obvious passing downs to get the defense off the field.

CB Tre’Davious White

White has been hot and cold the past few weeks from the Mike Evans touchdown to take the lead, to shutting down Amari Cooper, to getting beat by Robbie Anderson for a touchdown. White has been tremendous this season and has played above and beyond his expectations as a whole. This week he has to come out hot against Drew Brees and the Saints receiving corps.
