These are three sensational stats that defined the Buffalo Bills win in Week 2.

The Buffalo Bills controlled the game against the Miami Dolphins in Week 2 almost right from the start with two sacks on the first three plays. They added the first score of the game two plays later on a Devin Singletary run and the Bills didn’t look back.

However, when looking at this game there were a few stats that stood out that really defined this win for the Buffalo Bills starting with the scoreboard.

Stat #1: 0 points allowed

For the first time under Sean McDermott, the Buffalo Bills secured a shutout win. The last time the Bills shutout a team was in 2016 when they beat the New England Patriots by a final score of 16-0.

The quarterback that game for the Patriots was Jacoby Brissett, who played most of the game Sunday for the Dolphins, as he replaced Tom Brady who was serving the final game of his suspension for ‘Deflatgate’.

While there is plenty of room for improvement, this was one of the more dominating performances by the Buffalo Bills. Last year, the Bills would build big leads but there was a few times that teams would come back and cut into the lead. That didn’t happen against the Dolphins as the defense was able to keep the pressure on the offense and shut them down at every turn.
