The (*2*)Buffalo Bills beat the Tennessee Titans in convincing style on Monday night time, including to the lore of the 2022 season. A 41-7 Week 2 win gained’t hand them the Super Bowl, however Buffalo has accomplished the whole lot requested of them up to now in the season.
As we end off Week 2, listed here are my takeaways from the sport.
Allen and Diggs reign ideally suited
This is precisely the way you win an MVP. Throw out two large performances to begin the season on nationwide TV and get a host of touchdowns and let the sector chase you. The connection between the 2 has at all times been nice, however those two had the sport in their lives on Monday. On 14 goals, Stefon Diggs had 12 receptions, 148 yards, and 3 touchdowns together with a bomb the place Diggs became the rookie cornerback inside-out. (I wrote that stat line in the 3rd quarter, now not anticipating it to be the general quantity since the Buffalo protection became the screws.) That used to be the tale of the night time, in point of fact; Diggs schooled the defender and Josh Allen discovered him. With broad receiver Gabe Davis sidelined on a bum ankle, Diggs used to be the whole lot Buffalo wanted at the night time and Allen used to be more than pleased to feed him.
Grounding Derrick Henry
The Bills completely managed the road of scrimmage in opposition to the Titans, and Tennessee took their megastar operating again out of the sport in the 3rd quarter. When the Bills took the 27-7 lead, Henry had 11 carries for 14 yards. That comprises 5 carries for ten yards in opposition to mild containers (six or fewer) according to ESPN. He completed with 13 carries for 25 yards and a goal-line punch in. The Titans pulled him from the sport with 19 mins left along Ryan Tannehill.
Defensive accidents pile on Buffalo
There used to be a frightening scene proper earlier than the top of the primary part when cornerback Dane Jackson used to be loaded into an ambulance following a vicious hit that bent again his head and neck. Safety Micah Hyde left the sport with a neck harm. Defensive take on Jordan Phillips and linebacker Matt Milano left the sport close to the beginning of the fourth quarter. With a brief week earlier than going through the high-powered (I mentioned it) Miami Dolphins offense, the Bills will have to be involved. Defensive tackles Ed Oliver and Tim Settle overlooked the sport with their very own accidents.
Jordan Phillips is his absolute best self
Head trainer Sean McDermott likes to mention that avid gamers come to the Bills to be the most efficient variations of themselves and nobody proves it greater than Jordan Phillips. The large 6’6”, 330-lb defensive take on used to be all over where once more on Monday. He had pressures and tackles, positive, however he used to be additionally a key member of the staff pumping up the gang after large performs. He loves it right here, feeds off the fanatics, and it presentations at the box.
Linebacker a laugh night time
The Bills’ linebackers have been in all places. Even Tyrel Dodson, who caught to big groups, had a fumble restoration on a punt go back. Tremaine Edmunds and Matt Milano have been simply in all places. Edmunds had a phenomenal sack on a play-action go strive after which when shedding into protection, he tipped a go together with his lengthy fingers that used to be picked by means of protection Jordan Poyer. Milano had his personal select, taking it again for a landing because the exclamation level for the sport.
Celebrate the joys
So many people take into accout video games at the flawed facet of ratings like this. I am hoping y’all are having a laugh.
