2.) Buffalo Bills’ defense allows no rushing touchdowns
The Bills have allowed two touchdowns against them heading into Week 4, both were receiving touchdowns by Garrett Wilson and Davante Adams. Through three weeks, the Bills are allowing 110 rushing yards per game, but have only 80 yards per game the last two weeks. One of the major struggles the Bills faced in prior seasons was the lack of stopping the run. They have turned it around this season and look to slow down the Dolphins’ rushing attack.
Miami has established the run early on in the season with Raheem Mostert and rookie running back De’Von Achane, who together, have combined for 448 rushing yards, 8 touchdowns and 19 first downs. In their Week 2 performance against a Bill Belichick defense who tends to take away the run, Miami managed to run for 145 yards and that was before rushing for 350 yards last week against the Broncos.
The stats look scary for sure, but the Bills defense is built to slow down the run and they will look to take away the run game of Miami and focus on the passing attack.
