The Buffalo Bills went down like a lead balloon against the Green Bay Packers on
Sunday Doug Flutie Jerseys 2019 , being completely shut out on offense despite the defense managing to hold their own. The team’s most prominent rookie, Josh
Allen, has to shoulder a lot of that blame himself.The rookie defenders fared
much better, with Tremaine Edmunds and Taron Johnson being involved in several
impact plays. More about the performance of the Bills’ rookies below.QB Josh
AllenAllen’s performance against Green Bay can be described as an (Im)perfect
Storm. He certainly had a hand in the offense’s lackluster day, but it wasn’t
all his fault. However, he made quite few different kinds of mistakes during his
limited time on the field. Too often, he was hesitant to check down to his
outlet, leading to unnecessary pressure and sacks. Too often, he got spooked by
pressure, leading to a breakdown in his mechanics and incompletions. Too
often White Jim Kelly Jerseys , he failed to move safeties with his eyes, including on a failed deep shot to Robert Foster. And too often, he failed to recognize and
adjust to blitzes. For all the positive steps Allen took against the Minnesota
Vikings, this game showed that he still has a long way to go.LB Tremaine
EdmundsEdmunds’s struggles against the run during the first three games of the
season continued in Green Bay. When blockers got to his level, the rookie was
unwilling or unable to take them on directly—preferring to either run around
them or simply struggling greatly against them. On one egregious example,
Edmunds was ridden eight yards down the field by Packers’ tackle David
Bakhtiari. The rookie proved to be much more effective against the pass. Midway
through the second quarter, he used his long arms to tip an Aaron Rodgers pass
into the air that led to an interception by Jordan Poyer. Much later in the
game, Edmunds came on a well-timed blitz, forcing a hurried throw from
Rodgers.DT Harrison PhillipsPhillips continues to see limited time on the field,
but he did manage to make his presence felt on a couple of run plays. He was at
his best when using his strong upper body and long arms to jack up
guards Jim Kelly Jerseys 2019 , preventing them from moving him off his spot. Phillips still needs to improve his pass rush—he failed to get much pressure on Rodgers when
matched up one-on-one with a guard.CB Taron JohnsonThe best rookie on the field
Sunday, by far, was Johnson. His work crashing down against the run prevented
some big gains, and his blitz early in the fourth quarter forced a fumble. In
coverage, Johnson was usually in somewhat decent position, however he did get
called for defensive holding early in the game. Photo by Stacy Revere/Getty
ImagesS Siran NealNeal recorded his first real snaps (2) of the season after
Micah Hyde went down with a groin injury. The rookie didn’t make any mistakes
with his short time on the field. In fact, he managed to sack Rodgers on a blitz
late in the second quarter.WR Ray-Ray McCloud IIIMcCloud wasn’t involved much in
the passing game and was not targeted. Pressed into punt-return duties with the
injury to Micah Hyde, McCloud had a fair catch and was tackled for a one-yard
loss on two punts.WR Robert FosterFoster was involved in about a third of the
offense’s snaps. He was targeted twice but was held to no catches. His first was
the aforementioned Allen deep shot, and the other came late in the second
quarter. On that play, Foster gained separation on a comeback route White O. J. Simpson Jerseys , but pressure up the middle prevented Allen from stepping into the throw.P Corey Bojorquez Bojorquez had another busy, but solid
day punting the ball. Of his eight punts, four were downed inside the 20—with an
average distance of 43 yards. The longest return of one of his punts was nine
yards. NotesRookie guards Wyatt Teller and Ike Boettger were inactive. The
