This victory over the Denver Broncos had to have been the rare viewing where the Buffalo Bills won all three phases of the game. Now allowing the Broncos to get the slightest chance at some type of success is what lowered their confidence and boosted the Bills’. The Bills improved to 8-3 for the first time since 1996 after a dominating 20-3 win. They send the Broncos to 3-8.

 

Offensive Power

Josh Allen and the offense racked up 424 yards on eleven drives in the game. Allen would pass for 180 yards and two touchdowns. He would also rush for 56 yards on nine carries.

The rushing attack for the Bills ended the game with 244 yards on the ground. Devin Singletary captured his first 100 yard rushing game of his career and the living legend Frank Gore surpassed Barry Sanders in career rushing yards to move up to third on the list behind Walter Payton and Emmitt Smith. He would finish the day with 65 yards.

Cole Beasley and John Brown both saw the endzone today. Brian Daboll continued to open the playbook more as time goes on. The offense has played exceptional the last two weeks and they took their opportunities when needed to.

 

Defensive Dominance

This is the first game where the Buffalo defense did not allow a touchdown since Week 9. The Broncos offense had no answers for four quarters and were shoved around by the Bills defense. They gave up four sacks and only gained 134 total yards.

Just when the Broncos had some sign of light after they picked Allen of, Tre’Davious White responded with an interception himself in Buffalo territory. White also played shutdown on Broncos’ young stud Courtland Sutton. He would have only one catch and it came in the first quarter on Denver’s first drive.

Ed Oliver and Star Lotulelei would have a sack each and Shaq Lawson broke through the Broncos’ wall to bring down Brandon Allen twice.

 

Moving Forward

The Bills head into the next portion of their schedule which will be without doubt their toughest stretch. Sitting at 8-3 with a current two game lead for a wild card spot, they set themselves up for a final run to reach the postseason. The Bills are on a short week as they travel to Dallas for a Thanksgiving showdown.
