ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (WIVB) — The Buffalo Bills won their second game in a row, a 43-21 blowout victory over the Washington Football Team.
With a lot of talk of the power of the Washington defensive front coming into the game, the Bills offensive line stood up to the test and did not allow a single sack on Josh Allen throughout the game.
Thanks to the protection from his O-line, Allen left no doubt in Sunday’s performance, finishing 32 of 43 for 358 yards with four touchdowns through the air and one rushing TD in the win.
After Allen tossed two interceptions against the Dolphins last week, the Bills did not turn the ball over at all, and instead the Buffalo defense forced a fumble and caught two Taylor Heinicke picks to win the turnover battle.
With Sunday’s win, the Bills have outscored their opponents 78-21 over the last two weeks.
