The Buffalo Bills lost another close game on Sunday to the Cincinnati Bengals, 27-24 in overtime. The Bills currently sit at 2-4, but they’ve been in every game they’ve played this season. A big reason for Buffalo’s competitiveness is the talent on their team.
Starting this week, Making the Grade will take a look at Pro Football Focus‘ weekly ratings of Buffalo Bills players. If you aren’t familiar with Pro Football Focus (PFF for short) the site uses analytics to grade players (subscription required to access the database). A 0.0 weekly grade is considered average, regardless of position. When discussing each player’s performance, a breakdown will be given of the individual categories that make up the player’s overall grade.
Here’s a look at some Bills players who rumbled, or played well, against the Bengals, followed by some who stumbled, or didn’t play well.
