Bills defense makes it personal
While many Bills players and coaches shy away from paying attention to what is said about them or their opponent each week, it was hard to not see the hype the Dolphins offense received after scoring 70 points the week before.
“We heard a lot about it,” safety Micah Hyde said.
On Sunday, the Bills defense showed they were up for the challenge, and then some.
“We tried to wake everybody up and make people talk,” DT Ed Oliver said. “We want everybody to know that this defense is for real, we got special guys.”
The Bills sacked Tua Tagovailoa four times, tied for the second-most of his career and most in a game since November of 2022.
“Yup. That’s where the game starts. And we talked about that quite a bit. You can never take that for granted,” McDermott said of the success up front.
After allowing touchdowns on the first two possessions, the Bills defense started to keep pace with Miami’s speed, growing more comfortable series by series. The Dolphins were held scoreless from the 12:46 mark of the second quarter until the 9:30 mark of the third quarter — a span of over 15 minutes of game time that Buffalo used to open up a 31-14 advantage.
