Los Angeles, Calif. (WGR 550) - The Buffalo Bills started their 2022 campaign with a bang on Thursday night, defeating the reigning Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams, 31-10, at SoFi Stadium.
The Bills played an all-around game on Thursday, having big plays from both the offense and defense. Bills quarterback Josh Allen threw for 297 yards and three touchdowns, while the defense combined for seven sacks and three interceptions.
Bills head coach Sean McDermott spoke with the media following the Bills' Week 1 win, emphasizing the idea of taking things one game at a time.
"It's just about one game. We came together in the second half, and played good complimentary football," said McDermott of his team.
The beginning of a new season brings players getting new starts. One part of the team that saw some big additions was the defensive line.
"I felt the [defensive] line. You could feel them make an impact and factor in the game. When you can do that, it helps you in the back end as well," McDermott said. "We got those Buffalo fans in the stadium behind us a little bit that helped too. I love watching our [defensive] line get the crowd into the game especially when we're on the road like that. I appreciate 'Bills Mafia' showing up and showing out like they did."
