The Arizona Cardinals offensive line has allowed eight and nine sacks to the Miami Dolphins and St. Louis Rams respectively over the last two weeks, and is hoping to improve this week versus the Buffalo Bills.
Guard Daryn Colledge spoke to Kyndra de St. Aubin of Arizonasports.com after practice on Monday:
"I mean that's a whole team situation," said veteran guard Daryn Colledge. "We've got some guys not lining up right and we've got guys on the offensive line not playing their techniques. You end up having 16 mental errors and all of a sudden the game's out of hand."
Arizona is coming off a 17-3 loss to the St. Louis Rams last Thursday, to fall to 4-1 on the season.
The Cardinals are also second to last in the league in rushing, as they are averaging 63.4 yards a game on the ground through five games this season. The also recently found out that they would lose starter Ryan Williams for the remainder of the season due to a shoulder injury.
The Cardinals will face a Bills team this week that ranks 30th in the league in rush defense, giving up 171.8 yards a game on the ground. The Bills gave up 311 yards to the 49ers last Sunday. The Bills defense ranks 17th in sacks, as they have recorded 10 in five games this season.
