After 16 regular-season games and another two postseason games, the Bills found themselves in the Super Bowl taking on the mighty New Orleans Saints. A chance for the franchise to get its first Lombardi Trophy in team history. The Bills played a stellar game as they trounced the Saints 38-14. Here are some key takeaways from the game.
The Bills offense was awesome throughout the 2020 season, ranking first in the NFL in total offense. However, Sundays showing was on a whole different level. The Bills offense slashed the Saints defense as they finished the game with 595 yards of total offense. They were clicking on all cylinders during the game and obliterated a strong defense.
Singletary and the run game
More specifically, the running game for the Bills, led by Devin Singletary, was unstoppable on Sunday. The Bills had 245 yards rushing as a team, the most they’ve had in a game all season. Singletary led the way with 20 carries for 145 yards, a 7.1 yard per carry average. He was impressive as was Stefon Diggs one rushing attempt which he took 74 yards to the house.
Diggs win the MVP
Speaking of Diggs, he was named the Super Bowl’s MVP following the game. It was an incredible showing by Diggs, who cemented himself as one of the top wideouts in football this season. Diggs had five receptions for 90 yards and a touchdown to go along with his one rushing touchdown. He was a game-changer all season and it showed on Sunday.
Pass rush eats
The Bills pass rush was a problem for the Saints as they got to Jameis Winston several times on Sunday. The Bills sacked Winston four times, all of which were by a different player. They got constant pressure on Winston all game which led to their Super Bowl win.
