Hughes logged six tackles - including two sacks - during Buffalo's Week 1 loss to the Ravens.
No one has been able to slow down Hughes throughout training camp and he carried that right over into the regular season. Coach Rex Ryan keeps singing his praises and apparently Hughes likes his new role as more of a linebacker in the team's 3-4 defense. He's also going to see more mismatches when the team has him rush at the opponent's right side of the line. A double-digit sack season appears to be in the cards for Hughes.
Jerry Hughes finished the 2015 season with 52 tackles, five sacks, four passes defensed, two forced fumbles, and one fumble recovery. He played in all 16 games for the fourth straight season, while seeing action on 92.5 percent of the defensive snaps.
Hughes picked up 67 points in standard IDP scoring after putting up 90 the previous season, and that's mostly due to the drop in sacks. If your league counts passes defensed, he closed that gap a bit. In truth, almost every member of the Buffalo Bills ' defensive line struggled with Rex Ryan's new system, and there's little reason Hughes can't get back to double-digit sacks in 2016 as his familiarity in a complex scheme grows. Hughes also took some dumb penalties in 2015, and it won't sit well with the coaching staff if he doesn't clean that up permanently.
Miami will be without tackle Branden Albert and with Hughes on the field, the Bills gain an advantage in their quest to dominate the line of scrimmage.
