The Buffalo Bills seemed to be entering Week 8 with their back against the wall. They had gone 1-2 over the past three weeks and coming off the worst performance of the season in a 29-25 loss to the New England Patriots.

Right from the start though, the Buffalo Bills tried to put that behind them with the defense forcing a quick punt by the Bucs before Josh Allen was able to move the ball down the field and set them up in field goal range for the first score of the game.

It was more of the same on the Bills second drive but failed to convert a 4th and Goal from the 1 yard line. The good news was the defense continued to contain the Bucs' offense and the Bills would score a touchdown to take a 10-0 lead in the second quarter.

The Bucs would tie it up with 10 straight points from a field goal and then a touchdown after they secured an interception on a pass that was tipped up into the air. The Bills would answer with 14 straight points to build a 24-10 lead and would go on to win 24-18 after a late Bucs touchdown in the fourth quarter.

These are some initial thoughts from the Buffalo Bills Week 8 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
