Bills quarterback Josh Allen threw for three touchdowns and ran for another.
Wide receiver Stephon Diggs finished with 122 receiving yards and one touchdown, while Gabe Davis and Isiah Mackenzie also caught touchdown passes.
While the Bills offense hummed, it was actually the Buffalo defense that stole the show.
They intercepted Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford three times and attacked him 15 times, including seven sacks.
It was a particularly meaningful win for Bills linebacker Von Miller, who signed with the Bills in the offseason after winning the Super Bowl with the Rams last year. Miller finished Thursday’s win with two sacks and three tackles.
And despite the strong win, Diggs said his team was still not ahead of themselves, citing mistakes, including two unsuccessful fumbles, as reasons to stay focused.
“So don’t ride that wave. We did some good things. We had four turnovers. Four turnovers can cost you a game.” Luckily our defense stepped up and they played a terrible game we just had to keep going and get better on offense we did some good things but we have to go back to the lab did not become.
football is back
Seven months after the last NFL action, the league is finally back. And seven months after he won the Super Bowl in February, the Rams are back.
In the tradition of the reigning champions, players and fans enjoyed a moment to celebrate last season’s title success, watching a commemorative championship banner lift into the rafters of SoFi Stadium.
However, despite the positive atmosphere in the stadium, it was the moving side that set the tone from the start.
An 11-play, 75-yard, 5-minute drive from the Buffalo offense blew the wind out of the stadium as Davis stepped into the end zone.
Stafford worked with star receiver Cooper Cup to equalize, but the second half was more one-sided.
The Bills’ three straight touchdowns on three straight possessions and the Rams’ offense struggling to move the ball built up a commanding lead.
Coming off a historic Triple Crown season last year, Kupp led the league in receptions, yards receiving and touchdowns, finishing with an impressive statistic line of 13 receptions, 128 yards and touchdowns. It wasn’t… enough for the repressed Rams.
Then Rams head coach Sean McVay signed a contract extension with general manager Les Snead hours earlier to take responsibility for the flat performance.
“We have to do better. There were a lot of decisions that we felt we didn’t put our players in enough places. It’s been a humbling experience, but we’re going to stay connected. We’re internal.” We’re going to look to and do a better job moving forward, but you give the Bills credit and we’ll move forward accordingly.”
