Commanders must contain Josh Sweat
Andrew Wylie was supposed to solidify the right tackle spot, but the former Kansas City Chiefs starter has instead struggled mightily. He has already allowed three sacks, hardly the ideal preparation for facing Josh Sweat.
The rugged defensive end is making great strides early in this season. Those strides are shown by 1.5 sacks and 10 pressures through three weeks.
Wylie and left tackle Charles Leno Jr. will likely need help to keep Sweat quiet. This represents a tall order, especially if the underperforming duo doesn't manage to take some pride in their performance levels and raise them accordingly.
It won't be easy to provide said help when so much attention needs to be paid to Jalen Carter and Jordan Davis - not to mention prolific veteran Fletcher Cox. But offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy needs to figure out a solution. Keeping blocking tight end John Bates over Sweat would be a good start.
Sam Howell was sacked nine times by the Buffalo Bills in Week 3. Something Bieniemy can't let happen again.
