Bills' pass rush below average; O-line surrenders above-average press rate vs. Ravens

Throughout the season at BNblitz.com, we'll be monitoring the Buffalo Bills' collective pass rush, the team's pass-blocking efforts and how they stack up to the rest of the NFL.

Beyond that, we'll provide statistical analysis of the blocking and pass rush of Buffalo's upcoming opponent.

According to PFF, against the Baltimore Ravens, the Bills were credited with 10 pressures – sack, hit, or hurry – on 41 dropbacks faced (35 from Joe Flacco, six from Lamar Jackson). 

Offensively, Bills quarterbacks Nathan Peterman and Josh Allen were pressured on 18 of their 42 dropbacks.

John Miller allowed four pressures – four hurries. Ryan Groy allowed four pressures – one hit and three hurries.

Buffalo's Week Two opponent, the Los Angeles Chargers, surrendered 14 pressures on 52 Philip Rivers dropbacks in the loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday. 

Rookie right tackle Sam Tevi, who filled in after Joe Barksdale's injury, allowed six pressures – one sack, one hit, and four hurries. Second-year left guard Dan Feeney also gave up six pressures – one sack, one hit, and four hurries.

Defensively, the Chargers registered 13 pressures on 30 Patrick Mahomes dropbacks. That rate of 40 percent currently ranks ninth in the NFL.
