It wasn’t just the Bills players stepping up to protect their $258 million franchise star, but “Bills special teams coordinator Heath Farwell was screaming at Byron Jones after that play. Love to see that,” WKBW’s Matthew Bove tweeted.

Video of the third quarter altercation posted on Twitter showed the Allen was also extremely heated following the late push.

Following the personal foul, Allen was sacked by Miami’s Emmanuel Ogbah, forcing the Bills to punt the ball.


Allen Was Expecting a ‘Hostile Environment’ in Miami

Bills vs Dolphins

Even though the Bills have been 7-1 against the Miami Dolphins since McDermott took over as head coach in 2017, Allen was not taking anything for granted before heading to Miami Garden to take on their AFC East rival.

It was just last season the Bills routed the Dolphins 56-26, and Buffalo expected to face a team wanting nothing more than sweet revenge. “We’re focused on going into a hostile environment and trying to execute,” he said on facing the Dolphins in Week 2.

The Dolphins were the only AFC East time to snag a win during Week 1, and a Bills loss in Week 2 would give Miami an early lead in the division. As it stands, Buffalo is favored by 3.5 points while the game has an over/under of 48.5, per Sports Illustrated.

“Going back to last year’s season finale, the #Bills have outscored the Dolphins 84-26,” Buffalo beat reporter Jay Skurski tweeted on Sunday.


Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa Went Out With an Injury in the First Quarter

While Allen was not injured in the late push by Jones, the Dolphins starting quarterback, Tua Tagovaila left the game in the first quarter with a rib injury, which instantly brought down the level of competition expected on Sunday.

While Tagovailoa was initially questionable to return, during the third quarter, Tagovaila was officially downgraded to out.

Backup quarterback Jacoby Brissett stepped in for the Dolphins, but he wasn’t able to get anything going on offense. Miami went down 28-0 after Bills running back Zack Moss ran in the ball for a 7-yard touchdown in the first few minutes of the fourth quarter.

Moss was noted as a healthy scratch in Week 1, which had numerous analysts around the league scratching their heads. It appears head coach Sean McDermott and offensive coordinator Brian Daboll realized they needed to switch up the backfield in Week 2, a move that’s paying off big time against the Dolphins.
