Kansas City has a challenging game coming up this Sunday, which is expected when you’re a game away from the ‘Big Dance.’ The outstanding Bills offense has the potential to give the Kansas City defense issues.
Obviously, they have elite players everywhere you look. In a way, their offense can be reminiscent of the Chiefs. They have the elite quarterback in Josh Allen, who progressed significantly this year.
Let’s not forget about maybe the best receiver this year in Stefon Diggs. The newly acclimated Buffalo Bill is taking the league by storm, and set career highs across the board.
However, neither of those is a player who can sneak up on Kansas City due to Allen and Diggs’s polarization. A player for Buffalo who can is Gabriel Davis.
Gabriel Davis: A Vital Part of the Bills Offense
Buffalo got maybe the offensive steal of the draft this past season. It is pretty clear that the rookie from UCF will be a special player for years to come.
In just these playoffs alone, Davis has made some impressive plays. The two toe drag catches on the sideline against Indianapolis is SportsCenter worthy. Not to mention they were on the same drive.
While he is not Buffalo’s number one option, or second for that matter, he does a great job at creating plays. Davis can take the pressure off of both Diggs and Beasley with his size and talent.
This Sunday, Gabriel Davis could be matched up against someone like Charvarius Ward or even L’Jarius Sneed. The two corners have been great for Kansas City this season. It is safe to say that Breeland may be matched up against either Cole Beasley or Stefon Diggs.
In Davis first playoff game against the Colts, he showed flashes of becoming an elite receiver. His four receptions for 85 yards were second on the team behind Diggs stellar performance.
Of course, next week against Baltimore, Davis had some problems. Allen targeted Davis four times again, this time for no catches. Baltimore has an elite secondary and can lock up most receiving units.
With how Kansas City plays, they will be focusing on Diggs and Beasley. Therefore, Davis is a player on the Bills offense who could go off.
Gabriel Davis Against KC in Week 6
Yes, Kansas City has already beat Buffalo back in week six. Of course, the narrative behind that game is that Buffalo had missing players. Let’s not also forget the weather on that day.
Buffalo was without Matt Milano, their star linebacker. The Bills offense was also without two players, John Brown and Dawson Knox. As for the weather, it was rainy and cold, so the run game was a priority.
Therefore, we didn’t get to see Allen play as well as he has lately. That also goes for Gabriel Davis, who had one catch for four yards. While he didn’t play good in the two teams’ first matchup, he is due for a good one this Sunday.
