2. Bills will hold Bennett to no catches
Bennett has been spectacular up to this point, but he will have a quiet afternoon in Week 4 as a result of a few things: Rex Ryan focusing on stopping No. 88 and the sheer wealth of weapons as Garoppolo’s (or Brissett’s) disposal.
Ryan isn’t that far removed from Belichick in terms of defensive strategy. While known for his dizzying blitz packages, Ryan is also specialized in targeting a potent offensive tool and stopping him. Such will be the case in Week 4 when Ryan negates the receiving threat of Bennett.
Additionally, this is going to be a week in which Garoppolo or Brissett look to other receivers for support. Much like Hogan was limited to just one reception last week, Bennett will have a quiet day, while Hogan steals the show like we talked about previously.
