The Buffalo Bills are heading in the right direction.
Josh Allen tied a career-high with three touchdown passes and ran for another touchdown Sunday to help Buffalo complete a season sweep of the Miami Dolphins by winning 37-20.
“Beastmode” was activated. Allen went 21 for 33 for 256 yards without a sack or turnover, and his passer rating of 117.7 was a career-high. He extended his streak of passes without an interception to 163.
The win gave the Bills (7-3) their best 10-game record since 1999. The Bills looked like a contender Sunday, at least compared to the Dolphins (2-8).
“That was our best game,” said John Brown, who caught two touchdown passes. “But we haven’t played our best game yet.”
South Florida native Devin Singletary, who played at Florida Atlantic, rushed for 75 yards. Singletary estimated he had about 100 friends and family at the game representing the Bills mafia.
Bills are moving in the right direction; I wonder which direction the Dolphins are heading?
Their two-game winning streak was snapped. And lost to Buffalo for the fifth time in the past six meetings.
Jakeem Grant scored for the Dolphins on a 101-yard kickoff return — his fourth career kick or punt return for a score. Grant also scored on a 7-yard run on a jet sweep.
“I thought we’d come in and be more competitive,” said the Dolphins’ quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, who threw for 323 yards.
Miami did not know what hit them. The Bills totaled a season-high seven sacks and allowed only 23 yards rushing.
DeVante Parker, who has redeemed himself in a Dolphins’ uniform, set up Miami’s first touchdown by turning a short pass into a 50-yard gain. That was all for the Dolphins highlights.
The beat goes on.
The Bills face another team with a losing record Sunday when they host the Broncos (3-7).
Next Sunday the Dolphins will play at Cleveland for the first time since 2013.
