Bills, Eagles still flying high in NFL

·2-min read

Buffalo and Philadelphia have both recorded impressive wins to be just two of six teams still perfect a fortnight into the NFL season.

After the Miami Dolphins, Kansas City Chiefs, New York Giants and Tampa Bay Buccaneers went 2-0 on Sunday, the Bills thrashed Tennessee 41-7 and the Eagles were 24-7 winners over Minnesota on Monday night.

In New York, Josh Allen threw four touchdown passes, including three to Stefon Diggs, and Buffalo rolled past the Titans in their home opener.

The Bills followed a season-opening 31-10 rout of the Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams by throttling an opponent that have been their nemesis in each of the past two seasons. Reggie Gilliam and Matt Milano also scored TDs for Buffalo.

Allen topped 300 yards passing for the 15th time of his career, completing 26 of 38 attempts for 317 yards, and sat out the entire fourth quarter. Diggs had 12 catches for 148 yards. He has exceeded 100 yards in each of his first two games, a feat accomplished previously for the Bills only by Hall of Famer Andre Reed.

"When we execute, how we know we're supposed to execute, success typically leads to success," Allen said.

"We're just trying to be the best version of ourselves."

Tennessee, the two-time defending AFC South champions, were coming off a 21-20 season-opening loss to the Giants and opened 0-2 for the first time since 2012.

"We got our (butts) kicked, plain and simple," coach Mike Vrabel said after the most lopsided loss in his four-plus seasons coaching the Titans.

"We're going to go back to work and try to figure out how to win a football game."

In Philadelphia, Australian offensive tackle Jordan Mailata played his part in the Eagles' staying unbeaten.

Jalen Hurts had 301 total yards in the first half in the breakout game of his young career while trying to prove he is the franchise QB in his second year.

In his 21st career start, Hurts finished with 333 yards passing and a touchdown plus 57 yards and two scores on the ground.
