Giants’ Mike Kafka preparing for dangerous Bills pass rush

The New York Giants will have their hands full this Sunday night when the latest makeshift version of their offensive line attempts to stop the fierce pass rush of the Buffalo Bills.

The Bills lead the NFL in sacks and are averaging 4.2 per game. The Giants have had major issues protecting the passer this season. They are allowing a league-high 6.0 sacks per game.

Left tackle Andrew Thomas (hamstring) and center John Michael Schmitz (shoulder) have not practiced again this week and are unlikely to play. Right tackle Evan Neal (ankle) and guards Marcus McKethan (knee) and Shane Lemieux (groin) were limited on Thursday.

Get ready for another game of backups and practice squad players filling in. Against this Bills pass rush, that is a scary thought.

Offensive coordinator Mike Kafka is left to make lemonade (a very weak one) out of the lemons he’s been left along the line. He’s basically out of ideas at this point.

“Our process hasn’t changed; we are looking to improve on those certain fundamentals and techniques and schemes, and I think that’s part of our process is continuing to improve on the things that we haven’t done as well and continuing to build on the things that we have done well,” Kafka told reporters on Thursday.

Uh, okay. Kafka did address the Bills’ defense without revealing who he might put out there Sunday night to block them.

“They are a talented defense, have some familiarity there playing them in the past,” he said. “They get after the football, they run, they tackle, they’ve had a lot of production in the pass game and the run game, so we are going to make sure we prep it and study and make sure that we are prepared to go.”

Kafka was asked what he thought the offense did well recently.

“I think one of the things that we improved on from last week was the turnovers,” he said. “That certainly showed up early in the season, so last week we were able to minimize that and improve and to me, that’s a step in the right direction and so we will continue to try and build on that this week.”

Fact check: the Giants had a minus -8 turnover ratio the first four games but were +3 last week in their game versus Miami.
