The Dolphins got bashed on their own turf by the Bills 35-0 in one of the most lopsided wins you're likely to see in the 2021 NFL regular season.

The deficit equals the same margin of victory between the Saints and Packers in Week One.

Josh Allen (25) played a better game than his season debut a week ago, completing 17 of 33 pass attempts for 179 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception.

Running back Zach Moss didn’t have a flashy game on the ground for the Bills but ran for two touchdowns himself.

The Bills’ defense can be considered the real stars of the show, attacking with a game plan that was meant to flip the script from a lackluster showing last week. They played tough, even knocking out Dolphins starting quarterback Tua Tagovailoa early in the first quarter.

Buffalo’s defense also allowed only 216 yards of total offense, and that constant pressure also forced two fumble recoveries and an interception on Miami backup Jacoby Brissett in the second quarter.

The Bills jumped out to a quick 14-0 lead to start the game, but Miami’s defense forced a fumble recovery of their own and an interception to keep the score down heading into the half.

But Buffalo adjusted and came out to start the second half with another touchdown drive to boost the score up to 21-0, and held on to the momentum through the rest of the game.

This was the sixth consecutive win over the Dolphins and the second-straight game that the Dolphins were blown out by at least 30 points.

Next Sunday, the Bills (1-1) head back home to face the Washington Football Team (1-1) while the Dolphins (1-1) head out to Vegas to take on the Raiders (2-0).
