Bills RT Jordan Mills vs. Falcons DE Takkarist McKinley: Mills is 6-foot-5 and 316 pounds. He's a five-year veteran who started his career with Chicago after he was drafted in the fifth round of the 2013 draft out of Louisiana Tech. McKinley, who has recovered from offseason shoulder surgery, made his first NFL sack last week. He rushed from both sides against the Lions.
Bills CB Tre'Davious White vs. Falcons WR Julio Jones: White had his first career interception last week against Denver. White, a first-round pick out of LSU, has four pass breakups. He held up well against Denver's Demaryius Thomas. White was targeted 10 times and allowed five catches for 85 yard with nine yards after the catch, according to Pro Football Focus. Jones caught all three of his targets on crossing routes for 42 yards against the Lions. On the season now, he has 128 receiving yards on crossing routes, which leads the league, according to Pro Football Focus.
Bills LDE Shaq Lawson vs. Falcons RT Ty Sambrailo: Lawson, a former Clemson standout, is off to a fine start, with 10 tackles and two sacks. Sambrailo was a strong run blocker last week against the Lions, but had some issues in pass protection and gave up two sacks. "I liked that there was urgency in the way that he would cut (block)," Falcons coach Dan Quinn said. "I thought that he improved from the performance before."
