Nuggets to know
1. The Bills acquired Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs this offseason. Since entering the league in 2015 out of Maryland, Diggs has 365 receptions (15th in NFL) and 4,263 receiving yards (14th) in the regular season, more than any Bills receiver in that span.
2. Josh Allen enters his third season under center in Buffalo. Last season, Allen improved his completion percentage and touchdown-interception ratio, but despite that improvement, Allen's QBR took a step back to 47 in 2019, 24th out of 30 qualified quarterbacks.
3. While the Bills struggled offensively, their defense was one of the best in the NFL last season. They ranked in the top five in points and yards allowed as well as defensive efficiency. Buffalo will bring back 10 of its 11 defensive starters from last season, setting up for another strong season under coordinator Leslie Frazier.

Nuggets to know
1. With the fifth overall pick in the 2020 NFL draft, the Dolphins selected former Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa. Tagovailoa is recovering from a serious hip injury suffered last season. Tagovailoa's two seasons as Alabama's starting quarterback were among the best we've seen. Since ESPN's Total QBR first began in 2004, no player in college football has had a higher career Total QBR than Tagovailoa (93.5). Something worth noting: Between 1967 (the first year of the common draft) and 2019, 53 QBs were taken in the top five. Only three of them failed to start at least one game their rookie season. And of the 50 who did start, 39 did so prior to Week 6, including 26 in Week 1.
2. After finishing in last place in the AFC East last season, the Dolphins spent a lot of money in free agency to address various holes. Miami led the NFL in free-agency spending this offseason, giving out $147 million guaranteed, $119 million of that on defense, the side of the ball coach Brian Flores was brought into turn around. The Dolphins struggled defending the pass in 2019, ranking 26th in passing yards allowed with cornerback Xavien Howard limited to only five games. However, the team overhauled that unit in the offseason, signing former Cowboys cornerback Byron Jones to a five-year, $82.5 million deal and drafting Auburn CB Noah Igbinoghene with their third and final pick in the first round.
3. The Dolphins used a lot of resources this offseason to help out their offensive line. Miami finished last in the NFL in pass block win rate (41.2%), nearly 5% worse than any other team, this according to NFL Next Gen Stats data. The Dolphins spent $33 million in free agency on their offensive line (fifth most in the NFL) and drafted four offensive linemen.
