Recapping the rout of the Saints
Tight end Dawson Knox continued his assault on Buffalo’s single-season record books for tight ends, while Ed Oliver and Buffalo’s run defense held the Saints to only 1.8 yards per rush, the lowest total by a Bills opponent this year. We recap the victory, which was not without its flaws as Josh Allen threw a pair of interceptions, the offensive line continued to struggle with penalties and protection, and Buffalo saw its All Pro cornerback, Tre’Davious White, leave with a potentially serious knee injury.
