Dolphins 20 vs 48 Bills sumamry, stats, score and highlights | NFL Week 4
Allen didn't even play the final few minutes of the fourth quarter. That's how in control the Bills were in the second half. Before heading to the bench he threw for 320 yards on 21/25 passing and four TDs, not to mention this 11 yard run to add to the Dolphins misery.
Stefon Diggs completed his hat trick of TDs with his 13 yard TD catch after shaking his defender out of his shorts. He ended the night with 6 catches for 120 yards and three TDs.
The Bills have the most takeaways in the league, and against the league's most high powered offense they forced Miami into a fumble and this Tua pick that Hyde was waiting for after the QB just let it sail over his receiver.
Miami tried to mount a comeback out of the break, scoring a quick TD to start the third quarter but that would be the last time the Dolphins saw the end zone. Buffalo's defense locked them down the rest of the way and Allen would stretch the lead out even more in the final quarters
This was all Diggs right here on this long TD catch and run. Watch him spin out of one tackle and break another for a 55 yard sprint to the end zone and his second TD of the night.
Three drives, three TDs to start the Bills day. Allen wiggled right just enough to free up Diggs for the first of Diggs' three TDs on the night.
Achane evened things up on the Dolphins second drive as both teams exchanged blows to start the game. Achane had two TDs in the first half, but that was the last sign of life we saw from the Dolphins in the first half.
Cook got his piece of the pie with this TD from a yard out on the Bills second drive of the game. Cook ended the game with 12 carres for 29 yards, and the Bills had a total of 104 yards rushing.
Neither team looked like they were going to be stopped in the first quarter. The Bills scored on their first drive and the Dolphins answered right back with a TD from De'Von Achane.
Boy oh boy were there a lot of highlights in Buffalo on Sunday. Where do I start? I guess from the beginning with this TD pass from Allen to Gabe Davis for the first of his four passing TDs in the blowout win.

WE ARE UNDERWAY FROM ORCHARD PARK!!!
The Bills will get the ball to start the game and there is Hamlin on the field on the return team.
What an incredible sight this is. Damar Hamlin returns to the Bills only 10 months removed from nearly dying on the field in Cincinnati back in December. He has been given a clean bill of health and Hamlin should see some snaps today in the biggest game of the season.
The Dolphins might be undefeated but they go into Orchard Park as three point underdogs and the Over/Under is set as 52.5.
The over might be very tempting, but in all too many of these games between offensive juggernauts, the game ends up lacking in points. That doesn't mean I'm going to take the under, instead I am taking the Bills to cover at home. The Dolphins haven't played great teams just yet, and I think they get tested tonight.
Waddle will play tonight
The Dolphins have the best one-two WR combo in the league. That is not up for debate. That’s a fact. Tyreek Hill and Jalen Waddle have been lighting up secondaries for the last few seasons in South Beach and as the weeks pass the chemistry only gets better and the offense gets even more explosive. Last week Jaylen Waddle missed the blowout win against the Broncos, but will be back for Miami today in Buffalo. Waddle will no doubt be looking up to make up for lost time and what would have surely been a TD or two against Denver last week.
Tua doing the double
I don’t thing there is any question of who the MVP of the first month of the season was. Tua is so far ahead of the pack that it’s hard to even come up with someone who could be considered for second, and honestly his teammate Tyreek Hill would probably be the next on that list. Through three games this season, he has 1,024 yards, eight touchdowns and two interceptions, What’s incredible, other than the sheer madness of those numbers is the fact that his stats are identical to the first three weeks of last season.
Bills Mafia back at home
It wasn’t exactly how the Bills planned to start the season, but their Week 1 loss to the Jets might have served as a wake up call for a team that has been knocking on the door to the Super Bowl, but have yet to see it open. The city of Buffalo is desperately craving their first title in franchise history after four straight heart breaks in the Super Bowl back in the 90s. The belief in Orchard Park is that the Bills have the team to do it, but that has been the feeling for the last couple years. Bills fans will no better than anyone that you have to capitalize when you have the chance, because they don’t come around every few years.
Fins up north
For some reason people came into this season questioning if the Dolphins would be able to replicate their incredible start to last season. Tua suffered a couple of scary looking concussions and the Dolphins offense never really recovered, but he came into this season healthy and Miami might look even more dangerous than they did last year. The defense is no doubt a question mark, but if they can keep up this pace on the offensive end all year they won’t have to worry about defense.
Dolphins last week
Miami didn’t just hand Denver an epic beating last Sunday from Hard Rock Stadium, they made history becoming the fourth team to score 70 points is an NFL game. They needed just a minute and twenty three seconds for Tyreek Hill to enter the endzone with a 54 yard TD catch and sprint. They didn’t slow down for the rest of the game. Tua Tagovailoa went 23/26 for 309 yards and 4 TDs, and back up Mike White had another touchdown on one of his two throws of the day. De’Von Achane had 203 yards rushing and two TDs on 18 carries as the Dolophins racked up 350 yards on the ground. They had a chance to break the all time single game points record but took a knee instead of kicking a field goal.
Buffalo last week
The Bills went into Washington and took on a Commanders team that was undefeated threw two weeks. Many people were using their game against the Bills to see if the Commanders were for real, and Josh Allen and the Bills answered that question with a thumping win over Sam Howell and Washington. Buffalo put up 37 points, but Allen had a normal day going for 218 yards and a TD with one INT. It was the defense that locked down the Washington offense, picking Howell off four times, one of those going for a TD, and sacking him nine times and holding them to a total of 230 yards. If it wasn’t for the Dolphins drubbing of the Broncos the Bills would have had the performance of Week 3.
We are live from Highmark Stadium
Hello everyone and welcome to Orchard Park where the the Bills are back home coming off of two convincing wins after their Week 1 overtime loss to the New York Jets. Their opponents weren’t the toughest over the last couple weeks, but their offense has ignited and the defense gave up 13 total points against the Raiders and the Commanders. The Dolphins are one of, if not the best team in the league, and their 70 point performance last week only confirms that. They crushed the Broncos on a historic day in Miami, but their only two wins over the Patriots and the Chargers came in one possession games so there are still questions about this team, especially on the defensive end.
Dolphins vs. Bills
