When it was unofficially official that Sean McDermott would be the play caller for the defense of the Buffalo Bills, this brought hope and excitement as to how this defense could be changed for the better from last season.
Through three weeks, the defense has been amazing. There is no other way to say it other than Buffalo has asserted dominance on the defensive side of the ball. They haven’t allowed more than 200 passing yards in a game, they have 9 takeaways (5 against the Commanders), only have allowed 31% of third-down conversions to be converted, and have only allowed two red zone touchdowns out of a possible seven tries.
A touchdown hasn’t been scored against them since the first defensive drive against the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 2. Since that drive, the Bills defense has forced 7 takeaways and come up with 5 sacks. This defense is playing at an elite level and they have arguably their biggest test of the year early on in the season as they host the Miami Dolphins, who are coming off a 70-point performance against the Denver Broncos.
Whenever the Bills and the Dolphins play, it gets feisty and it is usually always close. The Dolphins’ offense will be looking to continue their dominance on offense but they will have to get past this Bills defense in order to do so.
