1. Mitch Morse ready for pressure against the Dolphins
Bills center Mitch Morse has been adapting to a new scheme and new lifestyle with the Buffalo Bills. Buffalo’s newest center has been a huge part to the offensive line’s success this season and is ready for today’s matchup against the Dolphins.
Morse spoke to The Buffalo News about the game.
I think there's pressure every week. I think you see the box scores after every Sunday, there's no bad teams in the NFL. I mean, there's teams with some (losing) records, but the discrepancy between a winning team and a losing team is very slim.
For us, we don't take any games for granted. We know we're going to get a red-hot Miami team and for us, it's a very exciting challenge to go down in the heat. I think you double down on what you know works after a loss. For us, we know what we need to get fixed and we'll fix it.
Morse and the rest of the Bills will have nice weather in Miami this weekend but he says it’s been a privilege to be in Buffalo so far.
It's been a privilege thus far to be with a town that really cares for its team and a town that really takes in their team and the guys. This organization's very family oriented and that's something I can get behind and it's easy to really kind of cope with and veg with. So I've been very fortunate to be here with this team, in this locker room and hoping to continue that for some time.
2. Shaq Lawson ready to step up
Starting defensive end Jerry Hughes is listed as questionable for today’s game against the Dolphins, according to Friday’s injury report. Shaq Lawson has been a rotational piece of the Bills defense thus far and can fill Hughes’ role if he can’t go.
“I’ve been ready for the opportunity,” Lawson said. “I prepare every week like a starter. I was a starter here before and started a lot of games here last year. I hope he can go but if he can’t go, I’ll be ready.”
Lawson has totaled 11 quarterback pressures this season with 16 total tackles and two sacks. In a starting role he won’t change his game.
“It don’t change nothing at all,” Lawson said. “Just an opportunity to show some more of me. Getting an extra few plays. I just have to go out there and do my job, do my 1/11th, affect the run and affect the run game.”
3. Devin Singletary a top fantasy value
Still trying to decide what to do in fantasy football today? Luckily, Good Morning Football’s Kay Adams already put the leg work in. Bills running back Devin Singletary is a top fantasy value for this week because the Dolphins are “gifting fantasy points” to opposing running backs this season.
