The Buffalo Bills kickoff their second-quarter http://www.authenticseahawksstore.com/deshawn-shead-jersey-c-1_46.html of the season against the Cincinnati Bengals. The road game is Buffalo's final matchup before their bye week. If the Bills pull out a win in Sunday's game, it may be time for just about everyone to start believing. Here are 8 things to watch when the Bills and Bengals face-off in Week 5.

Will Marcell Dareus prove his worth?

Marcell Dareus has a big contract, but little to show in terms of production on the field this season. Dareus has been limited on the field due to an ankle injury, but the defensive tackle needs to show urgency soon to have any chance of remaining on the roster long-term. Cedric Thornton has been starting in Dareus' place and playing decently. When asked if Dareus was a starter, Sean McDermott simply said there was a competition at the position. Dareus sounds like he is running out of time to impress McDermott.

How does Matt Milano look in first career start?

Buffalo will be without Ramon Humber on Sunday. Starting in his place will be rookie Matt Milano. Sean McDermott showed he was confident in Milano by stating, Hes ready and hell only get more and more ready as he puts the time in this week.Don't be surprised if the Bengals attack the rookie to test him early.

Can the Bills' linebackers slow down Bernard and Kroft?

Last week, RB Tevin Coleman and TE Austin Hooper combined to catch nine passes for 115 yards against the Bills. As Matthew Fairburn stated, "Some of that falls on the linebackers." In Week 5, Buffalo's linebackers will have to deal with RB Giovani Bernard and TE Tyler Kroft. The duo combined to catch nine passes for 135 yards and three touchdowns last week. Slowing this duo down will be important to keeping the defense fresh throughout the game and it starts with the linebackers.

Is this the week Zay Jones steps up?

Jordan Matthews is expected to miss up to four http://www.authenticsteelersstores.com/ernie-stautner-jersey-c-1_15.html weeks with a thumb injury. That leaves the wide receiver position extremely thin. The team brought back Philly Brown this week, but all eyes on Sunday will be on Zay Jones. The rookie is off to a slow start, but will be needed on Sunday if Buffalo hopes to have any chance of moving to 4-1. It's important for Jones to contribute early and often on Sunday.
