4. The Bills made life miserable for Jay Cutler

When you go up against a Jay Cutler led team there is always a good chance that you’re going to have a field day on defence.

Sunday’s game was one of those days for the Bills.

The secondary showed yet again why they’re one of the best in the league when it comes to turnovers by intercepting Cutler three times while preventing him from throwing a single touchdown pass.

The Bills secondary made everyone forget that the week before Cutler threw three touchdowns and zero interceptions in their upset win over the Patriots.

It wasn’t just the fact that the Bills forced three turnovers, it was when the turnovers occurred.

Cutler’s first two interceptions came on the first two drives of the second half when the Dolphins were already down 21-6 thanks to defensive backs Shareece Wright and Jordan Poyer.

The third interception came with less than 30 seconds left in the fourth quarter when Tre’Davious White ended the game and prevented a potential Dolphins comeback.

The Bills front seven got enough pressure to sack Cutler twice with the credit going to defensive ends Ryan Davis and Cap Capi.

When the Bills played the Patriots in Week 13 the defence held Brady to zero touchdowns, one interception and sacked him three times. That same pressure will be needed if they want to upset the Patriots in Week 16.
