Commanders must contain Dawson Knox

Stefon Diggs may be the Buffalo Bills' go-to target, but tight end Dawson Knox becomes Josh Allen's favorite receiver the closer he gets to the end zone. The tight end has tallied 21 touchdown receptions, with his latest score covering just two yards against the Las Vegas Raiders.

Defending pay-dirt against the Bills is difficult enough when having to watch out for the rushing threats of Allen, James Cook, and Damien Harris. Even so, the Washington Commanders need a plan for Knox near the goal line.

Using safety Darrick Forrest to body the tight end would be a good start. Keeping Knox under wraps while also bottling up Allen's runners will make the Bills one-dimensional and give Sam Howell enough chances to outscore another Pro Bowl quarterback.

It'll be interesting to see how the Commanders defense approaches this one after such a snsational start to the campaign - especially from their front four. If they can keep Knox and tight end partner in crime Dalton Kincaid quiet, the better their chances of getting to 3-0 will be.
