The Buffalo Bills entered the 2021 season with high expectations and those expectations disappeared quickly after last week’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Bills did not look sharp on offense and struggled to move the ball and lost 23-16.

They entered Week 2 in an early, pivotal game as they headed to Miami to face the Dolphins in a key divisional game. The Dolphins are likely the Bills’ toughest competition in the AFC East and they were coming off a 17-16 win over the New England Patriots.

If the Bills were to lose, they would have essentially been three games behind the Dolphins with Miami owning the tiebreaker with the win.

Well, the Buffalo Bills responded to the moment and came out to dominate the Dolphins by a final score of 35-0. The Bills scored their first touchdown of the game on the second play of the game and never looked back.

When looking at this game, these are the top takeaways from the Buffalo Bills win over the Miami Dolphins in Week 2.
