After a scare in the second half, the Buffalo Bills managed to pull out a victory over the Cincinnati Bengals and improve to 3-0 on the year. The Bills are 3-0 for the first time since 2011.

Josh Allen finished the game with 243 yards with one touchdown and an interception, and also added on 46 rushing yards. Frank Gore took over as the Bills leading back with the injury of Devin Singletary and led the team with 76 yards and the game winning score.

The development of tight end Dawson Knox started today as he reeled in three catches for 67 yards and one score. He also added a monster stiff arm and truck stick to two defenders.

 

The Bills defense played absolute lights out in the first half, not allowing a first down until late in the second quarter while the offense jumped out to a 11-0 lead. The second half was a different story.

When It Mattered The Most

After a horrendous second half performance, both the Bills’ offense and defense got the job done in crunch time. Allen drove the ball down the field and was able to setup a touchdown run for Gore with less than two minutes left in the game. Up 21-17, the defense then had to pull their load.

Tre’Davious White sealed not one but two interceptions on the day, one of which was a the game-winning pick.

The Bills send the Bengals to 0-3 and the Bills are undefeated for at least one more week. The Bills will now have their hands completely full with the defending Super Bowl Champions coming to town next Sunday. The Patriots will roll into Orchard Park at 3-0 and take on the Bills who sit at 3-0 as well. Tune in for a physical game.
