Game facts: Arizona at Buffalo

Key matchup:Integral to this game will be Buffalo's ability to pass block against Arizona's blitz-heavy defense. According to Next Gen Stats, Tyrod Taylor's average time to throw is 3.05 second this season (longest in NFL); meanwhile, the Cardinals blitz on 42.2 percent of pass plays (most in NFL). 

Why did the Bills fire Roman?: Perhaps it had something to do with the stark drop-off in their rushing offense. After leading the NFL with 152.0 rushing yards per game in 2015, the Bills rank 24th in the NFL this year with 75.5 rush YPG.

Gunslingers: Both of the starting quarterbacks in the Arizona-Buffalo game like to utilize the deep ball. Carson Palmer ranks No. 3 in air yards per pass attempt (10.5 yards/attempt) and Tyrod Taylor ranks No. 4 (9.6 yards/attempt).
