Bills win 40-0

Josh Allen and the rest of the Buffalo Bills have made their Week 1 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers feel like it happened in an alternative reality. 

The scoring got started in the first quarter on a 25-yard TD to Dawson Knox. Despite the final score, these were the only points scored in the first frame. 

The second quarter saw Tyler Bass put up three field goals, one from 33 one from 26, and the third from 21. 

Rainy weather in this one definitely contributed to rookie Davis Mills' woes as he already had turned the ball over a couple of times in the first half. The defense would finish the game with four interceptions and 3.0 sacks in this one.

Quarter number three, like number one, only featured one score, a 28-yard field goal from Bass. 

Three touchdowns were scored in the final quarter of this blowout. Josh Allen tossed a 1-yard score to Dawson Knox, his second of the game to kick off the scoring in the fourth, Zack Moss would add a 4-yard rushing score several minutes later, and backup quarterback Mitchell Trubisky would add a touchdown on a naked boot, also from 4-yards out. 

Buffalo improves to 3-1 and sit alone atop the AFC East while the Texans drop to 1-3. 

Buffalo will face the explosive Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium next week while Houston will return home to host the Patriots.
