Could you imagine being the absolute best in the world at your job – even if for only a week?
Bills OLB Matt Milano doesn’t need to put that thought to imagination because he lived it.
Milano was the NFL’s highest-graded defensive player in Week 2, according to Pro Football Focus.
Highest graded defensive players from Week 2:— PFF BUF Bills (@PFF_Bills) September 22, 2022
🥇 Matt Milano: 94.5
🥈 Mike Edwards: 93.2
🥉 Micah Parsons: 92.6 pic.twitter.com/rT2IgggYiO
In Buffalo’s 41-7 thrashing of the Tennessee Titans Milano finished with three tackles, one tackle for loss, and a 47-yard pick-six. PFF rewarded the him with a 94.5 grade, edging out Bucs safety Mike Edwards and Cowboys LB Micah Parsons.
Milano played a key role in stopping Titans running back Derrick Henry. The man they refer to as a king looked rather pedestrian in Monday night’s win. Henry totaled just 25 yards on 13 carries with one touchdown.
It wasn’t just a one-man show, though. Von Miller (91.5), Stefan Diggs (91), and Gregory Rousseau (90.5) joined Milano in the 90s club.

PFF was handing out more 90s to Bills players than the high school football coach dishes out to his history students.
The Bills now shift their focus to a scorching-hot Miami Dolphins offense. Getting pressure on QB Tua Tagovailoa will be paramount in disrupting the league’s No. 1 ranked passing offense.
