Lynch against Denver's run defense: Despite his second consecutive 1,000-yard season, Bills RB Marshawn Lynch has struggled to find consistency. The second-year pro ran for 127 yards against a stout Jets defense last week and has a good opportunity to post his first back-to-back 100-yard games, with the Broncos' 27th-ranked run defense up next.
The O-lines: Buffalo's offensive line opened plenty of running lanes against the Jets but struggled in protecting Losman, whose fumble on an Abram Elam sack was the deciding play of the game. The Bills' O-line has allowed 10 sacks on Losman in the last three games after not giving up a single sack on Trent Edwards in the two previous games. Similarly, Denver's Cutler was sacked three times last week after previously staying upright for three straight weeks.
