Emotions rode high within the first few minutes of the first quarter for the Buffalo Bills.
Goosebumps from both frigid temperature and defensive tackle Kyle Williams’ last game provided a much needed spark against division rival Miami Dolphins.
In the Bills opening drive, Josh Allen and Bills looked to have great command of the Dolphins. Their nine play, 66 yard drive ending with a QB sneak resulted in the Bills first touchdown of the day.
Not long after, with momentum still on their side, Bills’ Tremaine Edmunds used his long reach in order to grab his first interceptions of his rookie campaign.
It took only one play, featuring the Zay Jones – Josh Allen connection that resulted in the Bills’ second touchdown.
On Miami’s next drive, Tre’davious White brought the house down with another interception.
By this point in the game, it was clear that Williams wouldn’t have to carry this group much longer. White and Edmunds led a group inspired to play their best in tribute of the 13-year vet’s honorable career.
As the Bills run support slowed down, the defense relatively tight up until the very end.
A route run and catch by Ryan Tannehill decreased their deficit by seven.
And with 0:39 seconds left to play in the first half, things got sloppy for the Bills offense. A pick six, 29-yard return by Reshad Jones tied the game up 14-14.
With one more half left in Williams’ storied career, we’ll see exactly how much is left in the tank. And if we’re talking money, Williams only needs one more sack in order to reach his $150,000 incentive.
