OT - ARI
Week 13 Outlook
Cody Ford was acquired Monday from the Bills in exchange for a 2023 fifth-round pick.
For the second time this offseason, the Cardinals are bringing in one of Kyler Murray’s former teammates from Oklahoma. Ford started seven games for the Bills in 2021 and should fortify the Cardinals’ offensive line. Adding a versatile lineman that can fill in at multiple positions should help improve the Cardinals’ run game in 2022.
Bills' OT Cody Ford (knee) suffered a torn meniscus during practice earlier this week, effectively ending his season as he prepares to undergo surgery and rehab for the next three to four months, per Ian Rapoport.
Ford's absence will put a strain on Buffalo's already mediocre rushing attack, which has only mustered a pedestrian 97.6 rushing yards per game during the 2020 season. This places even more pressure on QB Josh Allen to continue his exceptional passing campaign (2,871 yards and 21 Touchdowns) without the protection of the former second-round draft pick Ford. Expect the Bills to continue relying on their aerial attack in the wake of Ford's absence.
