The Buffalo Bills took down the Denver Broncos  26-16 on Sunday in a rather surprising manner.

The Buffalo Bills defeated the Broncos at New Era Field on a super warm day to go 2-1 on the year and 2-0 at home.

The win proved a lot of “experts” wrong.

The play of the defense is no longer a surprise, but an expectation.

The defense played outstanding again. The Broncos were shut down in the second half scoring only three points.

However, the interesting story this week is the offense.

More from Empire Writes Back

Tyrod Taylor led the way, in what was arguably his best game as a Bill, throwing for 213 yards and two TDs.

Taylor, once again, threw no interceptions and was consistently able to keep drives alive.

LeSean McCoy has been shut down at the line of scrimmage the last two weeks, failing to rush for over 50 yards again on Sunday.

Shady was not shut down completely though. He had seven receptions for 48 yards.

Charles Clay crossed the goal line for another TD this year to get the game going early.

Back on defense, rookie Tre’Davious White played like a vet again and was able to haul in a Trevor Siemian pass for his first NFL pick.

Remember the name Ramon Humber? Well, you should start. He was all over the field again Sunday recording eight total tackles.

On Thursday night, Bills fans had to suffer as they watched former WR Sammy Watkins score two TDs and catch for over 100 yards in route to helping the Rams win on national television.

His trade counterpart, EJ Gaines, helped ease the pain. He too intercepted Trevor Siemian to help the Bills get the upset win.

The Bills completed the trifecta as their special team play was on point. Steven Hauschka was a perfect 4-4 on the day in field goals, including one for 55 yards.

A key play in the game was late in the 4th quarter when Von Miller was flagged for un-sportsman like conduct the keep the Bills’ drive alive and allow them to go ahead two scores late.
