1. Milestones within reach for the Bills this week

For back-to-back years the Bills are heading into week seven with four wins. On Sunday, the Bills have the chance to go 5-2, but there are so many other milestones that can be reached. Here are some to look out for: 

  • If the Bills win on Sunday, Sean McDermott would tally his 30th win as Bills head coach, surpassing Wade Phillips for the fourth-most in team history. 
  • With 2.5 sacks, Jerry Hughes would surpass Kyle Williams (48.5) for the fifth-most sacks in franchise history.
  • If Josh Allen has a rushing and passing touchdown in Sunday's game, it would mark his 14th career game with both. That would establish a new franchise record surpassing Jack Kemp's 13 games.
  • With a reception on Sunday, Gabriel Davis would have a catch in all seven games of his rookie season. He would become the first Bills rookie since Sammy Watkins in 2014 to do so. 
  • With a win Sunday, the Bills would sweep the Jets for the first time since 2015.

2. The key to slowing down the Jets' top receiving threat

Jets wide receiver Jamison Crowder had seven receptions for 115 yards, in his first game against the Bills this season in week one. After missing the next two games with a hamstring injury, Crowder returned and had back-to-back 100-yard games. Jordan Poyer talked about the matchup and how they have to limit him this week. 

"The guy is a ballplayer," Poyer stated. "He gets open on man-on-man matchups, he's able to play with leverage to be able to run his routes across the field. He's really good after the catch, and he's their main target right now so we have to find ways to limit him in the passing game."

3. Tre'Davious White on his back injury

Since the beginning of October, Tre'Davious White has been dealing with a back injury. The injury popped up leading up to their Week 5 matchup against the Titans. After being out that game, he practiced and played last week against the Chiefs. During yesterday's zoom call, White said that he's getting better and continuing to fight through it. 

"I'm doing better, it's getting better and better, stronger and stronger," White said. "So, I just continue to do the rehab, do the things at home, get my rest, and stay off my feet as much as possible. It's just something that happened early on in the week, the week before the Tennessee game. Something came up and I'm trying to handle it as the best way I can. It is something that is getting better, but I'm going to continue to fight through it."
