Not many teams can say they have slowed down Lamar Jackson, but the Bills can as the Buffalo defense held the 2019 MVP to just 40 yards on 11 carries in 2019. Buffalo will utilize it once again this weekend with the hope to advance past the divisional round and into the AFC Championship in a week.
Bills linebacker Matt Milano gave the Ravens a bit of bulletin board material when he stated he’s “confident” the defense can once again contain Jackson this weekend.
“We’re pretty confident in being able to contain him,” Milano said on Thursday, via NYup.com.
“You gotta be ready to rock, you know? He can make anything happen at any time,” Milano continued. “Being aware of him at all times is gonna be key for us,” Milano said. “We just gotta be sound tacklers. A lot of other quarterbacks could just run it up and they’re gonna slide or be one cut. With Lamar, he’s a very shifty guy. … You just gotta make a play. That’s what it really comes down to.”
Bills host the Ravens Saturday night at 8:15 p.m. ET on NBC.
