Bills make a huge statement by beating the Seahawks, 44-34 (full coverage)

Never mind beating the now-impotent New England Patriots last week, as sweet and cathartic as that was for the Buffalo Bills.

On a remarkably gorgeous Sunday afternoon at Bills Stadium, the Bills achieved something far greater. They welcomed to town the NFC’s best team, the Seattle Seahawks and their dynamic offense led by MVP candidate Russell Wilson, and put on a dazzling show thanks to Josh Allen’s rejuvenated arm and a defense that forced four turnovers.

When it was over – and there were times when it seemed like it would never be over – the Bills owned a 44-34 victory that improved their record to 7-2 and dropped the Seahawks to 6-2.

It’s not too often that the Bills are involved in one of the marquee games on the NFL schedule, but just like they did last season in Dallas and then again in Pittsburgh, they rose to the occasion in a big way.

Their 44 points were the most they’ve scored in the Sean McDermott era, and it came thanks to a passing offense that, with the exception of a notable problem in pass protection, was nearly unstoppable. Allen completed 24 of 28 passes for 282 yards and three TDs in the first half alone.

He finished 31 of 38 for 415 yards, becoming the first Buffalo quarterback since Drew Bledsoe in 2002 to have two 400-yard games in the same season.
