The Bucs got a win last week at New England and the Tampa offense was kept under wraps. There were no such issues against the Dolphins at Raymond James Stadium as ageless Tom Brady threw for 411 yards and five scores – two each to wide receivers Antonio Brown and Mike Evans.
The Buccaneers’ defense sacked Miami quarterback Jacoby Brissett three times and forced him into two costly turnovers. Tampa amassed 558 total yards in the win.
The lone unbeaten team in the league was back home and took on the rival 49ers looking to win back-to-back games within the division. Kliff Kingsbury’s club had scored at least 31 points in its first four games but was kept in check by the San Frrancisco defense.
The Arizona defense kept Niners’ quarterback Trey Lance under wraps in terms of the passing game. The franchise is off to a 5-0 start for the first time since 1974 when they called St. Louis home.
A year ago, Sean McDermott’s club dropped a pair to the Chiefs – the second a 38-24 loss at Kansas City in the AFC title game. This time around, the Bills opened up a 24-13 at intermission. Then came a long weather delay but it did not affect the leaders in the AFC East leaders.
Josh Allen threw for 315 yards and three touchdowns and added 59 yards on the ground (1 TD). Buffalo forced four more turnovers and now leads the league with 15 takeaways.
