21 points is decent against Buffalo.
We need to see what Buffalo's "fast" offense turns into this season before we can judge this performance.
That said ... when the game was on the line, they did stop them. That is a good thing.
When the game was on the line ... everyone stepped up on both sides of the ball.
Z, the defense gave up 14 points. 7 of the 21 points came on the fumble recovery that lead to a TD run. Also, just to note, 7 of those 14 points given up came on a 30 yard field. The D played well. I would like to see some more pressure brought but they still played well.
3rd down defense was especially notable. That's a fresh breath of air compared to last year's putrid 3rd down defense.
3rd down D was much improved from the year before. Looks to be vastly improved this year.
D overall quite good for Buffalo's SB in September and seeing them absorb those turnovers and momentum shifts like that, courtesy of our offense.
They were AGAIN ranked near the bottom on 1st downs last year. AGAIN 3 years running.
That's BB's great blown up offense your talking about. Back in the weeds for BB.
Mean while Anguan Bolden just made a great SF team better.
Back in the weeds BB. Back in the weeds.
