The Buffalo Bills moved to 4-0 on the season with a victory over the Las Vegas Raiders as the defense showed signs of improvement.
It appears the Buffalo Bills continue to find ways to tune their game and the success has them sitting at 4-0 with their Week 4 win over the Las Vegas Raiders.
For weeks, Josh Allen has been the highlight of the team’s success and deservingly so. He’s needed to be the catalyst with the team’s defense not performing at the level many expected of them.

The team got a bit of a wakeup call against the LA Rams in Week 3 and needed to send a message against the Raiders. It wasn’t a dominant effort but certainly a step in the right direction.
Josh Norman made a big play picking up a fumble that led to the team taking a 30-16 lead. Sometimes in moments where a defense can look like they are in trouble, a turnover can help regain some confidence.
It’s certainly nice to have an offense that is averaging 30.8 points per game which is a sharp turnaround from the 19.6 points per game they had last season. However, there is too much talent on this defense and they should not need the offense to bail them out even though it’s taken a load off their shoulders.
This is why it might be too early to give this team the nod as a Super Bowl contender because there will be a time where the team’s offense will run into a wall and the defense will have to pick up the slack. No game will test that more than the upcoming matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 6.
Not only will that game be in primetime but if the Bills can limit Patrick Mahomes, then it will go a long way in putting them in the same conversation with the other top contenders in the league. Their offence hasn’t played an elite defensive team either so when that time comes, it will be interesting to see how they match up.
