Buffalo scored a big road win in South Florida, beating Miami 41-14. The Bills started fast and didn’t let up. Quarterback Tyrod Taylor had a big game, finishing 21/29 for 277 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions. Rookie Karlos Williams rushed the ball 12 times for 110 yards and a score. Former Dolphin tight end Charles Clay got on the board first for the Bills with a 25 yard touchdown reception. The Buffalo defense forced three Ryan Tannehill interceptions and returned one for a score.

Ground and pound. LeSean McCoy is averaging about 49 rushing yards per game this season, but that hasn't stopped the Bills from leading the NFL in rushing.

They went to Miami and showed they will be a factor in the AFC East. That defense was dominant for much of the game.

When the Bills play disciplined and avoid the unnecessary penalties, they have a dominant defense that can generate pressure and stop the run. On the offensive end, quarterback Tyrod Taylor continues to prove doubters wrong.

That was a butt-kicking by the Bills down in Miami. Everyone got in on the act: the pass rush, Ronald Darby, Corey Graham, Chris Hogan, Bacarri Rambo, Tyrod Taylor, Marcell Dareus, Karlos Williams, Joe Ferguson ... OK, maybe not the last guy. But don't tell me the guys from the '70s and '80s Bills didn't love watching Miami get dominated from kickoff to gun. Week 2's loss to the Patriots already seems well in the rearview -- that's how you answer a Sit down! from the ruler of your division.

Maybe workers can resume construction on that Tyrod Taylor statue now? Here's to hoping the blueprint wasn't burned, because after a stumble against the New England Patriots, lowlighted by three interceptions and eight sacks, the Buffalo Bills' answer at quarterback looked at ease again in Week 3.

Taylor is in his natural environment when rolling out and asked to make throws on the run. He did that often during a win over the Miami Dolphins while completing 72.4 percent of his throws.

The 26-year-old also threw three touchdown passes without an interception and without being sacked. Soon enough his Week 2 woes against the Patriots could look like a minor blip and far from the norm for Taylor.
