The Buffalo Bills had a crucial win, albeit in Week 2 of the NFL season, but they were able to secure their first win of the season and more importantly a Divisional win against the Miami Dolphins 35-0. Here is The Good, The Bad and The Ugly from the game on Sunday.

Coming off of a Week 1 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Buffalo Bills will look to rebound against the Miami Dolphins in this Divisional Matchup. While the Bills have enjoyed some success against the Dolphins (winning 5 out of the last 6) the Bills will have to correct some mistakes made last week to do so.

With expectations as high as they could be at One Bills Drive and beyond, the Buffalo Bills were stymied by the Pittsburgh Steelers 23-16, ending a 7-game home winning streak dating back to October 19th of last year (when they fell to the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday Night 26-17). While you are going to hear several reasons from “experts” as to why the Buffalo Bills fell to the Steelers, Hashtag Sports decided to throw their hat into the ring with some observations from Sunday in The Good, The Bad and the Ugly.

A common theme for experts and amateur content creators is to give their fans the "keys" to look for in a game. So, keeping with that theme, Hashtag Sports has 4 things that you should look for in today's matchup with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Brandon Beane’s press conference was a Master Class in giving enough to answer a question all the while creating more intrigue. While this is solely opinion, Beane saying that they can look for more long-term solution than short term answers said what we all know; Beane and head coach Sean McDermott will not be expecting 100% snap counts played by this years first round pick. Nor should they to be honest considering they are picking at what is widely considered the start of the second round at selection 30, although the only Beane and McDermott first round drafted player in Buffalo to start less than 91% of their games is Ed Oliver.
That's right. Josh Allen's burly center is staying in Buffalo after agreeing to a salary reduction for the 2021 season.
What's the impact to the Offense? What about Mongo? Are they going to be paying more money to Morse in later seasons now?? All this and more....
Are the Buffalo Bills really trying to build for a life without Brian Daboll? The truth is, the offensive system they run does require different skill sets than a more traditional offense and with the selections of Davis and Hodgins in the 2020 Draft, we might have started to see the smoke signals that Buffalo is preparing for the day when Daboll exits
As the 2021 NFL Draft approaches (and with the Buffalo Bills now absent a J.J. Watt signing since it was announced today he will be joining the Arizona Cardinals), the focus to improve the Defensive End position now shifts to the NFL Draft. The Bills sit near the bottom of the first round, holding selection number 30, but to find value at the position, will they need to move up or down?
Selfishly, one of Hashtag Sports wants the Bills to get David Johnson if he is cut by the Cardinals. Here is a hint.. its not Mario.
With the Carolina connection still strong with Beane and McDermott, could Greg Olsen find himself in a Buffalo Bills Uniform in 2020?
