Bills vs Dolphins Recap

What a way to close out the year. The Bills completely man handled the Dolphins, winning decisively 42-17. Everything seemed to click for the Bills as the game started. The Bills were able to put up 14 quick points in the first quarter, and then were met with a little resistance, as they Dolphins tied the game up at 14-14 entering halftime. In the second half, the Bills out scored the Dolphins 28-3. Overall, the Bills simply outplayed the Dolphins in all three phases, out gaining the Dolphins 381 yards to 225. On top of that team performance, Kyle Williams also got his warranted send-off and caught his first career pass.

Moving on the the other star of the day, Josh Allen his best day as a pro. Allen finished the day going for 17-26 for 224 yards with three touchdowns and an interception. Allen also ran for 95 yards and two touchdowns as well. If Allen can replicate even half of this stat line for the majority of the season, the Bills will be in contention for Super Bowl. The likelihood of that is highly improbable, but just the thought of that should help attract some free agents to the team, if they needed any more convincing. Now, it’ll be up to Allen to work on his consistency, so these types of games don’t happen far and few between.

Although the Bills finished 6-10 on the season, this team has several of the needed pieces already in place to make some noise in the 2019 season. Wisely spending during free agency, retaining young and talented players and finishing with a strong draft should pay dividends for this team, and may very well put them back into the playoffs.

Look for a complete breakdown the season and our continuing coverage of the Bills in the coming days.
