While the Dolphins' running backs had success last week against the Broncos, the focus of this offense has to be on their pass game. The duo of Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle is arguably one of the best in the NFL and has the speed to basically outrun every defense in the league.

The Bills entered this game knowing they were going to be missing Jordan Poyer, who was ruled out on Friday with an injury. This was not a game they wanted to be missing a starter but it would end up not being the only adversity they would face.

In the first half, Christian Benford left the game due to an injury and would be replaced by Dane Jackson. Benford would return to play on special teams until Tre'Davious White left with what is being considered a season-ending Achilles injury.

With all that said, the Bills still limited Tua Tagovailoa to only 282 passing yards, one touchdown and Micah Hyde came down with an interception. The Bills were able to hold Hill and Waddle to under 60 receiving yards each and only seven receptions combined.

It was a complete performance by the secondary, that tested their depth, but they continued to play lockdown defense. This could end up being the best performance from the Bills' secondary this season considering the injuries and the talent they were facing.
