The start to the Buffalo Bills vs Miami Dolphins matchup was a drive that most if not all fans expected, the first team possessing the ball driving down the field and getting six points. The Dolphins won the coin toss and deferred, which put the Bills on offense first. The Bills took the ball and ran 8 plays for 75 yards that ended in an 18-yard touchdown pass from Josh Allen to wideout Gabe Davis.

With this touchdown pass, Allen has tied former Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton for the third most total touchdowns in a player's first six seasons (184 total).

It was a mixture of 4 pass plays and 3 run plays, with James Cook and Latavius Murray getting involved in the run game. The play that set the Bills up for their first touchdown was a pass from Allen to Stefon Diggs for 17 yards, in which Dolphins' defender Kader Kohou pushed Diggs while he was out of bounds which tacked on another 15 yards for the Bills' offense. Allen would then find Davis down the sideline and placed the pass perfectly for Davis to walk into the endzone.

Diggs, Dalton Kincaid, Deonte Harty and Gabe Davis were involved in the passing game and it looks like Allen is comfortable to start out. In order to keep this Vic Fangio defense on their heels, the Bills will need to continue running the ball effectively and keep spreading the ball out to other weapons.

The Dolphins' defense will look to adjust to the offensive scheme of Buffalo, but this is where Allen will need to stick to the game plan by running the ball and giving Allen time to look for a receiver down the field. Perhaps, Buffalo may need to also get running back Damien Harris involved more and have a rotation in the backfield.
