What an upset.
What a game.
What a win.
The Buffalo Bills pull off the upset of the week by beating the Atlanta Falcons, 23-17.
Buffalo is now 3-1, while the Falcons lose thier first game of the season.
Bills defense stops Ryan: The stingy Buffalo Bills defense was harassing Matt Ryan all game and made him commit three turnovers. Tre’Davious White scored on the fumble and Micah Hyde had two interceptions. Jerry Hughes was a bull all game. Of course it does help that Julio Jones and Sanu left the game, but I’m not complaining. A total team defensive effort. I know this defense is really good, but I would’ve never thought they could do this to Atlanta.
Offense does enough: Bills offense put together a few good drives and put up points when they needed to. LeSean McCoy ran well, offensive line seemed to have thier way. Tyrod Taylor found his long ball with Charles Clay. If this offense can sustain drives, play turnover free, it’s a nice compliment to the defense.
Hauschka clutch again: A 55 and 56 yard field goals came huge in this football game. He’s a huge weapon when this offense can’t convert on the other side of the field.
Final thoughts: The Bills continue a surprising start to the season with a win over the defending NFC champions. It’s their biggest win road win of the drought.
But just like Sean McDermott said, “hold your horses.”
Plenty of season left. It looks like these Bills are for real.
