While it was a bit of nail-biter for a moment, a few Buffalo Bills players had career days against the rebuilding Miami Dolphins en route to a 31-28 win in Week 2.
Buffalo overcame linebacker injuries and the defense did just enough to give the offense ample opportunity to win the game. Quarterback Josh Allen and wideout Stefon Diggs led the team statistically, with Allen crossing the 400-plus yards passing milestone, with four touchdowns and no turnovers. Diggs hauled in 153 of those yards and had an untelevisied touchdown. John Brown and company had solid showings as well, as Allen continued to spread the ball around to his teammates.
Again, the game wasn’t as one-sided as the stats might seem. The Dolphins game planned wisely for the banged up linebacker group, and Fitzpatrick wisely fed tight end Mike Gesicki for a 100-plus yard day. The ability of the Dolphins to attack the middle of the field, kept the game closer than it should have.
Next week, the Bills return home to play the Los Angeles Rams, who find themselves undefeated as well after victories over the Cowboys and Eagles. There is some area for concern if Tremaine Edmunds and Matt Milano, amongst others, remain out for this big Week 3 match up.
