ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (WHEC) — The first week of the NFL season is behind us and it provided a lot of answers to the unknowns that existed.

We now know what it's like to watch football with little to no fans and we have more of a feel for where teams are at, not having had a preseason.


We expected consistent top-notch play from the Bills defense to carry over from last season, so we were really honed in on the offense.

Josh Allen had a good camp. How would that translate into games? How would offensive coordinator Brian Daboll use the new weapons around him?

We saw all of it and from home. Bills fans had a lot to cheer about.

For the first time in his career, Josh Allen threw for further than 300 yards in a game, a milestone stat for the third-year QB. But true to form, he wasn't afraid to take care of business himself.

He had 57 yards rushing on 14 carries and 1 touchdown, but he still has to keep himself healthy.

The Bills entered Sunday with six active linebackers. They came out with four injured: Matt Milano, Tremaine Edmunds, Tyrel Dodson and Del'Shawn Phillips.

We can hopefully exhale a cautious sigh of relief after Head Coach Sean McDermott's injury update Monday.

"They don't appear to be long-term injuries at this point, based on what we know, so we'll put them in the day-to-day category and we'll continue to update you guys as we get information," McDermott said.
