The Buffalo Bills bounced back nicely from a Week 1 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, dominating the Miami Dolphins 35-0 Sunday in South Beach to even their record at 1-1.

Today’s edition of the Bills daily links leads off with what we liked (A.J. Epenesa, Greg Rousseau and the rejuvenated pass rush, Buffalo’s dominant defense, the return of a formidable ground game) and what we didn’t like (Josh Allen and the offense still haven’t found their 2020 magic) from another win over the Fish.
