The Bills have some major matchups heading into their Week 3 tilt with the Rams. We highlight some of the players involved in those as well as some players who might be asked to step in and step up due to injury.

1. Mario Addison

The veteran pass rusher has provided production each of the first two weeks of the season. The Rams have a solid offensive line and Jared Goff more often than not gets the ball out quick, which can compromise a defensive line's effectiveness. L.A. has given up just two sacks in two games, but Addison has found a way to still make plays through the first two weeks.

2. Cole Beasley

While the marquee matchup in the passing game features Stefon Diggs and Jalen Ramsey, that matchup could lead to a day full of opportunity for Buffalo's slot receiver. Veteran CB Troy Hill is who Beasley is expected to see most of the day.

3. Cody Ford

It's a bit misleading to indicate that Cody Ford will be primarily responsible for keeping Aaron Donald out of the pocket on Sunday. Donald listed as a left defensive tackle is a bit misleading as he's deployed all across the Rams defensive front. He'll be just one of the Bills offensive linemen in charge of keeping the All-Pro from wrecking the game as Donald is likely to be double-teamed for most of the game.

4. Cam Lewis/Dean Marlowe

With Taron Johnson questionable for Sunday's game, it could put the Bills in an all-hands-on-deck situation for the nickel corner role. Even if Johnson is able to play, it's likely that Buffalo will have to turn to other options at times to best deal with premier slot receiver Cooper Kupp. Cam Lewis will be playing in just his third NFL game Sunday.

5. Devin Singletary

With Zack Moss declared out for Sunday with a toe injury, Singletary is expected to handle more of the workload even with T.J. Yeldon expected to be in the lineup in Moss' absence. Singletary believes the run game is gaining traction and is close to having a breakout performance. The Rams are surrendering more than 128 yards a game on the ground.
