Bengals WR Tyler Boyd makes a light shot at the ‘basic’ Bills defense
The Buffalo Bills have a 7th-ranked defense in the NFL but that didn’t impress Cincinnati Bengals recipient Tyler Boyd.
Speaking to reporters on Friday ahead of Cincinnati’s Monday Night Football game against the Buffalo Bills, Boyd criticized the Leslie Frazier-led unit, saying the Bengals’ talented trio are ready for anything. what is thrown at them.
“It’s the basic kind,” Boyd said on the Bills’ defense, through Bengals reporter Mike Petraglia. “They don’t disguise themselves too much. It’s pretty straightforward, they don’t do all the tricks we’ve seen in so many defences. But again, man, they’re playing with us. So each team prepares us differently. We are prepared for anything; however they want to play it.
Buffalo’s secondary was excised. Boyd, Ja’Marr Chase and Tee Higgins are among, if not the most paid trio in the NFL. They had a total of 205 tackles, 298 goals, 2,693 yards and 20 touchdowns. All three also averaged 12.2 yards per touchdown or better.
However, Buffalo has a number of defenders playing in high form.
Of corners with 125 or more saves this season, Tre’Davious White has the second-leastest yards after catches (26), ninth-least completion (13) and completion percentage. 12th lowest (52), while Taron Johnson allowed the 11th fewest hits each (9.3) and Dane Jackson had the ninth (nineth) highest number of clearances.
Johnson and Jackson also teamed up to perform 18 failed forced attempts and 3 interceptions.
Something will have to come up on Monday. Cincinnati has passed for 100 yards in 9/16 games this season while Buffalo only allows 213.1 yards per game.
