Buffalo Bills defeat Los Angeles Chargers, 27-17

The Bills emerged from their bye with a more productive rushing attack, and Josh Allen’s quieter games have all come this season with John Brown unavailable. Allen could be dealing with a swollen ankle this week, when he’s scheduled for a Monday night game played on a rare neutral field (the Bills will likely have to return to the scene of the “Hail Murray”) … Justin Herbert entered leading the NFL in Passer Rating when under pressure but mostly struggled, although the rookie still managed 300+ passing yards even while disappointing.

Austin Ekeler managed just 3.1 YPC but looked great during his return (LAC is arguably the worst run-blocking team in football), racking up a whopping 16 targets, meaning Keenan Allen’s value takes a small hit, while Ekeler can safely be treated as a top-five fantasy back moving forward … As someone who made a friendly wager on this outcome, the end sequence wasn’t ideal, and it’s starting to look like Anthony Lynn may no longer be the favorite for Coach of the Year.
