One Stat Recap: Buffalo Bills vs. Tennessee Titans
The Buffalo Bills returned to a successful formula to beat the Tennessee Titans for their second win of the season. The Bills’ defense attacked the ball all day and forced the Titans to turn it over three times. They caused the same number of turnovers in their first win of the season over the Minnesota Vikings. These turnovers gave the offense short fields and situations where they could capitalize. Two of the three turnovers resulted in points for the Bills. The only turnover that did not result in points was due to the Corey Bojorquez fake field goal attempt. The points the Bills scored off of turnovers were also the only points scored until the clock expired in the fourth quarter. Stephen Hauschka’s walk-off game-winning field goal was the only score that did not come as a result of a turnover by the Titans.

A former five-star recruit and three-time All-American now heads to Buffalo, as the final piece in Sean McDermott’s defensive puzzle. He’s primed to be a star.The Buffalo Bills had a major need for a dynamic defensive tackle following the retirement of Kyle Williams. After the free-agent signings phased out Cody Ford Buffalo Bills Jersey , the Bills were left with five defensive tackles on the roster. Those five players combined for only 45 tackles and one sack in 2018. Oliver will single-handedly transform that group. As an 18 year old, Oliver notched an outstanding 65 tackles, 22 TFLs, and five sacks. At 19 years old, he won the Outland trophy, presented to the nation’s best interior lineman. At 20 years old, only playing in eight games due to injury Cody Ford NFL Draft , Oliver still had 54 tackles, 14.5 TFLs, and three sacks.Oliver is a verified athletic freak. The 6’2” 287-lb defensive tackle jumped ten feet, benched 225 lbs 32 times, and ran the short shuttle faster than most tight ends.

His strength, given his size, is incredible—he can hold his own against double teams. He ducks, dives, and dodges around blocks, and while his pass rushing portfolio is still developing, that just raises his ceiling.NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported on-air that the Bills had been willing to trade up Cody Ford NFL Jersey , possibly as high as the third pick, for Oliver, per his league sources. That the Bills managed to stand pat at the ninth pick and take Oliver without sacrificing any extra value underlines another fantastic (lack of) maneuver by Brandon Beane.Oliver is a one-man wrecking crew in the defensive interior. Overlook him at your own risk. For a defense that needed chaos creators above all else, Oliver is exactly what the doctor ordered. Well done, Buffalo Bills.
