Bills 37, Commanders 3 | Game Recap, highlights + stats to know
The Buffalo Bills got their second win in a row in a dominant road victory over the Washington Commanders. The defense had four interceptions and the offense held the fearsome Commanders' pass rush to no sacks and a single quarterback hit.
Linebacker Terrel Bernard was all over the field Sunday, snagging the first interception of the day and tallying two sacks, seven total tackles, one pass defensed and a fumble recovery. Bernard, who got the first and second sack of his career Sunday, also had an interception in last week's win over the Las Vegas Raiders.
Safety Micah Hyde and cornerback Tre'Davious White also finished the game with an interception. After missing most of last season with a neck injury, Hyde's pick was his first since Jan. 15, 2022 against the New England Patriots. White prevented another potential scoring drive by picking off Howell in the end zone.
In the fourth quarter, A.J. Epenesa recorded his first career interception as Howell attempted to sail a pass over the 6-foot-6 defensive end. Epenesa snatched the ball out of midair and ran it back for a 32-yard touchdown. Epenesa also finished the game with a sack.
Quarterback Josh Allen looked sharp, completing 20 of his 32 passing attempts for a touchdown and an interception. He also had 46 yards on the ground, including a 10-yard touchdown scramble. Allen led the Bills to their ninth victory over Washington in their last 10 matchups, finding nine different receivers in the process. The Bills offense converted nine of their 15 third downs.
