The Buffalo Bills got their first win of the season against the Miami Dolphins and the defense played a major factor in the win.
Part of that had to do with the Dolphins losing Tua Tagovailoa in the first quarter while the other had to do with the team’s defense being relentless all game long. This would then set the stage for Devin Singletary to break free for a 46-yard touchdown run.
Getting an interception and two fumbles recoveries should provide some confidence for the defense considering this was supposed to be one of the top units in the league. This was evident with the six sacks Buffalo got along with 11 quarterback hits.
The standouts were definitely early-round picks Gregory Rousseau and A.J. Epenesa who combined for three sacks and four quarterback hits. Safe to say, the duo flashed their potential that the team saw when they drafted them early.
Buffalo Bills running game deserves more opportunities after productive game
Singletary was productive in the 11 carries he got against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 1 when he had 72 yards and followed it up with 82 yards on 13 carries. Zack Moss was not active for the season opener but was back in the action and wasted no time getting showing his ability to get in the endzone.
The Bills have shown they aren’t shy with giving Josh Allen the ball to make big plays but given what Moss and Singletary were able to do, they should be given more chances.
Allen wasn’t exactly at his best in this game and was fortunate to not have more than one interception in this game. This is where Singletary and Moss can try to lessen the load for the Bills passing game by getting tough yards and get more chances to score in the redzone.
To be fair, the Bills offensive line still has work to do but compared to Week 1, it was a slight improvement. As long as the defense continues to play like it has in the first two games, there’s no reason why Buffalo can’t repeat as AFC East champions.
