The performance of quarterbacks Josh Allen and Lamar Jackson will set the tone for the game that will pit the Buffalo Bills against the Baltimore Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday.
Both quarterbacks lead their teams in passing yards and rushing yards, so it is expected that there will be a large score in the duel between AFC teams.
Historically, the franchises have met 10 times since 1999 and the Ravens have a 6-4 lead. The most recent game was in the 2020 season which the Bills won 17-3.
Here are five players to watch from the Bills vs. Ravens game
Allen, along with Jackson, Dak Prescott and Daunte Culpepper make up a select group of quarterbacks who have thrown for 90 or more touchdowns and have rushed for 20 or more in their first 61 NFL games. At the moment, the Bills quarterback has 1,014 yards, nine TDs and two INTs after completing 71.2 percent of his shots.
Jackson is looking for a new contract and his start to the season is good enough to consider him an MVP candidate. The product of Louisville is the QB who generates the most rushing yards with an average of 81 per game and is the league leader in touchdown passes with 10.
Three weeks into the 2022 NFL season, Diggs is the leader in receiving touchdowns with four. In addition, the veteran wide receiver has made 15 of his 27 receptions a new first and ten for the Bills. With that in mind, his duel against Humphrey will be exciting.
According to Pro Football Focus, quarterbacks who have thrown to Humphrey in individual coverage have a QB rating of 1. Overall, the cornerback has 18 tackles and only he has allowed 64 receiving yards after giving up 12 catches.
After getting two sacks in the season opener, the former Rams and Broncos player hasn’t gotten a sack in the last two games and the veteran linebacker will be able to take advantage of the absences of the Rams’ starting tackles through injury to increase his sack total.
