Los Angeles, Calif. (WGR 550) - It was a resounding season-opening win for the Buffalo Bills on Thursday night in Los Angeles.
Buffalo traveled to Southern California to face the defending Super Bowl champion Rams, where they managed to pull away with a dominant second half performance in a 31-10 victory at SoFi Stadium.
Bills quarterback Josh Allen had a large part to do with his team's success, completing an impressive 26 of his 31 pass attempts for 297 yards and three touchdowns to go along with two interceptions.
The 26-year-old also led the team in rushing yards, amassing 56 yards on 10 carries and another score.
After last year's stunning loss in the AFC Divisional Round game to the Kansas City Chiefs, Allen and the Bills had a lot they wanted to prove coming into Los Angeles. One main focus, however, was limiting mistakes.
"Just trying to be smart with the football. Allowing our guys to catch and run," said Allen during his postgame chat with the media. "I had a couple plays that I wish I had back tonight. I think every game you're gonna have those, but just allowing our guys to catch the ball in space and make some plays for us."
Allen had a lot of big plays for his team throughout Thursday night's contest, but his 53-yard touchdown pass to Stefon Diggs stuck out the most.
"Third down, just trying to make a play for the team, and just doing what I can do to get a first down for the team," Allen said. "I play hard, I wanna win games no matter how I can do it."
