The Buffalo Bills (3-1) thoroughly dominated the Houston Texans (1-3) en route to a 40-0 victory on a rainy Sunday at Highmark Stadium.

Today’s edition of the Bills daily links recaps the good (how about that suffocating defense, the tenacious pass rush, the ground game, and Tyler Bass!) and the bad (red zone offense, Josh Allen’s first pass of the day, Matt Milano leaving with a hamstring injury) from Buffalo’s second shutout victory in the last three weeks.

It’s never too early to shift focus to Buffalo’s huge Week 5 clash vs. the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday Night Football.

Odds and ends

Tight end Dawson Knox is raising money to help pediatric cancer patients, LeBron James weighs in on the greatness of Josh Allen, and Erie County makes an investment in Highmark Stadium.
