The Buffalo Bills got off to a slow start against the Las Vegas Raiders after giving up a touchdown and went three-and-out on their first offensive drive. Since then, the Bills have scored twice and have been able to put pressure on Jimmy Garoppolo including intercepting him.

On the Bills' second touchdown drive, the Bills were able to put the ball into the endzone for a second time on a two-yard touchdown pass from Josh Allen to tight end Dawson Knox.

With that touchdown grab by Knox, he has tied Jay Riemersma for the second most receving touchdowns in a career by a Bills tight end (20 total touchdowns). Knox has been a go-to guy for Allen since he was drafted by the Bills in 2019 and he continues to be a safety valve for the offense. Expect Knox to eventually pass Riemersma this season as Allen will continue to target Knox. On that drive, Knox was targeted three times and caught all three passes for 10 yards and the score.

In addition to the touchdown grab by Knox, Allen has started off this game going 11-of-11 which ties his best completion streak to start a game since the Bills faced the Miami Dolphins in September of last season.

The offense has looked strong since their first offensive drive as they have had multiple players get involved. The only notable starter that has yet to get involved with the offense is rookie tight end Dalton Kincaid. The Bills will need to keep their foot on the gas pedal against the Raiders defense as they look to pick up their first win of the season.

The Bills have been safe with the ball up to this point, as the theme last week for them was turnovers. Look for Allen to keep targeting the short throws to his weapons which means Knox could potentially pass Riemersma on the all-time list for receiving touchdowns by Bills tight end.
