It was a dominating victory for Buffalo on Sunday Night Football at Levi’s Stadium. The Bills played a heck of a game. The offense was humming and the defense was stout en route to the Bills most impressive showing of the season. The Bills record now sit at 8-2 as they aim for a top spot in the conference. Here are some takeaways from Sunday’s game.
Allen goes crazy
It was another great game from Josh Allen who has come into his own this season. On Sunday he was outstanding going 33 of 35 for 332 yards and four touchdowns. His quarterback rating was an impressive 144.2 and he had total control of the game. With the Bills in line to finish towards the top of the AFC and their quarterback taking another huge leap, Bills fan can finally say it: The Bill have found their franchise quarterback.
Singletary runs well
Devin Singletary has had an up and down season, with some impressive games and some disappointing efforts. He had one of his better games on Sunday. On 18 carries Singletary totaled 101 yards averaging 5.6 yards per attempt. If the Bills can continue to get outing like that from Singletary, along with Josh Allen’s improved play, the Bills offense could be lethal moving forward.
Third down defense
Ever since the Kansas City game, the Bills defense has been significantly better on third down. On Sunday this trend continued. The Bills held the 49ers to just 4/11 on third-down conversions, which was huge in getting the ball back to their eager offense. The Bills had a wakeup call in that heartbreaking loss to the Chiefs and since then have been excellent in getting off the field on defense.
John Brown erupts
John Brown had by far his best game of 2020. He had 10 catches for 129 yards and two touchdowns. For weeks it’s been Stefon Diggs who’s been going off for the Bills, but the 49ers were doubling him all game. This led to John Brown being isolated with the number two cornerback all game long. This game is a perfect example of how lethal this Bills offense can be. You can take out Diggs, but there are guys like Brown, Dawson Knox, and Cole Beasley to worry about too.
The Bills will be at home next week as they take on the (3-7) Miami Dolphins at New Era Field.
