The Bills rebounded in convincing fashion against the Dolphins on Sunday in enemy territory. Buffalo blanked Miami 35-0 for it’s first shutout victory since 2017.
The offense was able to move the ball at will, both on the ground and through the air against a porous Miami defense. The Bills defense on the other hand was downright nasty, harassing the quarterback all game. Dolphins’ starting quarterback Tua Tagovailoa had to leave the game early on after a vicious, but legal hit by Bills defensive end AJ Epenesa.
Bills quarterback Josh Allen played well with two touchdowns passing, but he also threw a horrendous interception. The running game finally took off, accounting for three touchdowns including a beautiful 46-yard house call by running back Devin Singletary. Singletary’s running mate Zack Moss had a couple “angry runs” into the end zone, refusing to go down and inflicting punishment on would be tacklers. Stephon Diggs continued to prove why he’s the best wide receiver in the league by making circus catches, racking up statistics, and scoring touchdowns.
The Bills defense was lights out once again completely shutting down the Dolphins offense. The defense played in Miami’s backfield all afternoon consistently pressuring the Dolphins’ signal callers.
Rookie defensive end Greg Rousseau asserted his will all game finishing with two sacks and multiple quarterback pressures. The defensive unit stopped Miami on fourth down numerous times and proved to be ball hawks forcing a few turnovers. Cornerback Taron Johnson had
a great game flying to the ball, forcing a fumble and handing out some big hits.
The Bills and Dolphins are 1-1 after two weeks of action. It’s important to win the division games because it is the easiest way for the Bills to repeat as AFC East Champions. After the throttling of Miami on Sunday, I would say the division is on notice! The Bills next game is home against Washington on Sunday.
