The Buffalo Bills won’t be playing the Cleveland Browns at Highmark Stadium on Sunday as planned (the game was moved to Detroit for weather reasons), but they still managed to gain an advantage this week.

Multiple reports on Friday indicated that Browns cornerback Greg Newsome will miss this week’s game against Buffalo due to a concussion.

Newsome had a slow start to the season, but he’s been playing at a high level over the last month.

The Bills were obviously going to be the favorites in this game even if Newsome played.

But Cleveland being down one of their top defensive players certainly tilts this game further in Buffalo’s favor.

The Browns might be 3-6, but they’re still a dangerous team (just ask the Cincinnati Bengals after their 32-13 loss to Cleveland). They’re less dangerous, however, without Newsome.

Bills quarterback Josh Allen should have no issues picking apart the Browns’ secondary without Newsome on the field.
