The Buffalo Bills and Miami Dolphins were expected to be a high-scoring matchup and that has lived up to the hype early on. The Buffalo Bills would score first with a Josh Allen throw to Gabe Davis for an 18-yard touchdown.
The Dolphins responded with a touchdown of their own on their opening drive and the pressure was back on the Buffalo Bills to respond. They did just that with a one-yard touchdown run by James Cook.
The Buffalo Bills got a little lucky on that touchdown though as the handoff was not clean between James Cook and Josh Allen. However, the Bills quarterback would make up for it as he would push Cook across the line for a touchdown.
Buffalo Bills establish the run early against the Miami Dolphins
While Josh Allen is one of the best quarterbacks in the league, this game seemed to set up better for the run game. The Dolphins defense has struggled stopping the run and by leaning on the run game, it also keeps Tua Tagovailoa off the field.
The Bills did just that on their second drive as they would run a 10-play drive that went over five minutes. Through their first two drives, the Bills have 10 run plays compared to eight pass plays with James Cook leading with six rushing attempts and 23 rushing yards.
However, Latavius Murray had the big play early as he would break a 29-yard run on that second drive and is currently the leading rusher with 34 rushing yards. Josh Allen also has one rush attempt for three yards.
The Bills offense may not be as fast as the Dolphins but they have been very methodical moving the ball down the field, which works in favor to Buffalo. This seems like it will be a back and forth game and whoever has the ball last might be the one who wins.
