After a three-interception game on Monday Night Football in Week 1, Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills’ offense bounced back nicely with a convincing win at home against the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 2.

Offensive spotlight: Allen started hot, leading three touchdown drives in the first half and throwing two himself. The Bills didn’t take their foot off the gas in the second half, adding two more offensive touchdowns to put the Raiders away. Allen finished the day with a near-perfect stat line, going 31-for-37 and 274 yards passing for three touchdowns and a 124.5 passer rating. Gabe Davis emerged as Allen’s top weapon, totaling 92 yards and a touchdown on seven targets.

Davante Adams was the lone bright spot on the Raiders’ offense, as he caught six passes for 84 receiving yards and a touchdown. Jimmy Garoppolo was unable to accomplish much through the air without Adams, throwing for just 185 yards and two interceptions on the day.

Meanwhile, the Raiders’ rushing attack wasn’t much better, as Josh Jacobs, specifically, ran the ball nine times for -2 rushing yards.

Defensive spotlight: Matt Milano was one of the defensive stars for the Bills in Week 1, and that continued again in Week 2. Milano has now produced an interception in both games to start the season. He was also a top-three-graded defensive player for the Bills last week, and on first review of Week 2, he appears likely to finish in that range again.

Rookie spotlight: First-round rookie tight end Dalton Kincaid got significantly more involved this week. He was targeted six times, which led to 43 receiving yards on five receptions.
