In today’s edition of the Buffalo Bills daily links, we turn our attention to Buffalo’s (7-3) Week 12 matchup with the Los Angeles Chargers (3-7) Sunday at Bills Stadium.

We spotlight the reasons why quarterback Josh Allen, wide receiver Stefon Diggs and Buffalo’s aerial attack could be in for a big day against the Chargers, speculate on what Buffalo’s offensive line will look like, examine who will be the starting cornerback outside of Tre’Davious White, and dissect the comparisons between Allen and Chargers’ rookie quarterback Justin Herbert.

We explore why the fourth quarter is when Allen and the offense seem to shine, offer up grades for each positional unit and player coming out of the bye, break down what Jon Feliciano means to the offensive line, hear how Diggs uses his cleats to express himself on the field, discuss which Bills are leading in the early AFC Pro Bowl voting, take a painful stroll down memory lane with fan favorite Stevie Johnson, and much more.
