The Buffalo Bills went into Sunday's game as a nearly two-touchdown favorite. While that did not look like it would be the end result in the first half of their week 8 game against the Miami Dolphins, that turned out to be the case after the game ended.

The Bills beat the Miami Dolphins by a score of 26-11 in what was a bad first half on offense, and a more expected second half.

Bills quarterback Josh Allen completed 29 of 42 passes for 249 yards and two touchdowns; the majority of the passing yards and completions came in the second half.

Cole Beasley had his best game of the season, catching 10 passes on 13 targets for 110 yards, while Stefon Diggs and Gabriel Davis both caught touchdown passes.

The Bills only managed three points in the first half, but they returned to their old selves by the start of the second half.

Bills safety Micah Hyde says they just needed to "calm down" and that's what they did in the second half, outscoring Miami 23-8.

As for the defense, the Bills played well. The only real blemish was a long pass to tight end Mike Gesicki on a broken play to set up a 1-yard Tua Tagovailoa touchdown run.

The Bills defense forced two turnovers, including a Jordan Poyer interception to end the game.

The Bills are now 5-2 and atop the AFC East standings, while the Dolphins drop to 1-7 and have minimal playoff hopes in a competitive AFC.

The Bills next travel to Jacksonville to play the Jaguars next Sunday at 1 pm.
