McDermott says Dolphins offense is 'almost revolutionary'

Bills head coach Sean McDermott adds Miami has "unreal team speed"

Buffalo, N.Y. (WGR 550) - Football coaches always say they'll take 24 hours to enjoy a win or think about a loss before turning the page to the next opponent.

While that may be the case for the Buffalo Bills, coming off a 37-3 victory over the Washington Commanders on Sunday at FedEx Field, there's already been a lot of focus and attention paid to the next team on their schedule, the Miami Dolphins, who scored 70 points against the Denver Broncos on Sunday at Hard Rock Stadium.

Bills head coach Sean McDermott, who is also the team's defensive play caller, will be tasked with slowing down that offense in a key AFC East division game for both clubs.

"They have unreal team speed on the offensive side. That's really where my focus has been the last hour or two," said McDermott during his weekly Zoom call with the local media on Monday. "It seems like they added to it this offseason."

The 3-0 Dolphins are leading the league, averaging a historic 43.3 points per-game through the first three weeks. The Bills, 2-1, are second in the NFL, averaging 30.3 points per-game.

"Their schematics are almost revolutionary in what they do," McDermott said of the Dolphins' offense led by head coach Mike McDaniel. "Coach McDaniel is very creative and does a lot of things to get you out of position on defense."

Bates day-to-day

McDermott said offensive lineman Ryan Bates is day-to-day with an ankle injury. Otherwise, the Bills appeared to come out of the game in Washington mostly healthy.

The team will be off on Tuesday and back on the practice field Wednesday afternoon.
