The Buffalo Bills capped off the 2018 season with a blowout victory over the Miami Dolphins in what was Kyle Williams’ final game.

What a fun way to end the 2018 Buffalo Bills season.

We can worry about the draft position later.

The Bills absolutely destroyed the Miami Dolphins in a 42-17 victory to finish the year at 6-10. A Josh Allen pick-six made this one a bit closer than it actually was.

The score was 14-14 at halftime before the Bills opened things up in the second half. Allen finished with three passing touchdowns and two rushing touchdowns, finishing the year as the team’s leading rusher. LeSean McCoy finished with a quiet 26 rushing yards on the day.

The main storyline of the game was the fact it was Kyle Williams‘ final game in the NFL. He appeared on offense several times and even had a nine-yard reception near the end of the game. He recorded three tackles on defense.

It was a great game for everyone involved.

Zay Jones had two touchdowns and 93 receiving yards, while Robert Foster had a touchdown as well.

Trent Murphy and Jordan Phillips each recovered a fumble, and Tre’Davious White and Tremaine Edmunds added interceptions of their own.

The Dolphins looked terrible and it made sense why the Bills were favorites heading into the game. I imagine Adam Gase will be fired by tomorrow.

So that is it for the year. The Bills had plenty of ups and downs, starting with an embarrassing blowout loss to start the year. It’s only fitting that they won a blowout of their own to end the year.

Josh Allen finished with perhaps his best game of the season, even though he once again didn’t get much help from his running backs. That will be a top area of focus heading into next year.

The same goes for the receivers, although Jones and Foster figure to be key pieces next year.

The AFC East may be up for grabs next year, and this final game hopefully serves as a sign of better things to come in 2019. The Bills entered at 5-10 but played like they were fighting for a playoff spot, which is the exact opposite of what the Dolphins did.

The culture and motivation is there. Now Brandon Beane has to add more playmakers to the roster to take this team to the next level.

There are so many positives to take into the offseason for the first time in a long time. The Bills appear to be building something great and this win should serve as a starting point when looking back at how the team became a contender once again.
