Buffalo Bills: Rookie quarterback Josh Allen led his team to a victory for the first time in his career on Sunday. The Bills were a 17-point underdog. But there was no chest thumping from Allen after the game. He was 15-of-22 passing for 196 yards and a touchdown but was far from content. "There's still a lot of plays I'd like to have back from that game, a lot to learn from, a lot to improve on," Allen said. And he refused to call a much-discussed leap over linebacker Anthony Barr anything special. "There was a guy (Barr) maybe 3 yards in front of the sticks and I knew we needed a first down there and I think we went on to score on that drive. Obviously, it was a big play, but it was just another first down."
Miami Dolphins: It will be a case of role reversal when the Dolphins meet the Patriots on Sunday in Foxborough. Who would have thought the Patriots would be struggling with a 1-2 record and the Dolphins would be undefeated? Miami coach Adam Gase said it means nothing. "I don't look at records right now. It's too early. Nobody cares. I mean, at the end of the day, nobody will give as--- unless you win the last one. You've got to focus on one week, and that's what we need to do. When we get to that, when we get to Wednesday, we'll worry about them. Right now, our guys are going to get their things corrected from this game, and then, we'll move on to New England when it's time to move on."
New England Patriots: Coach Bill Belichick discussed his team's startling loss to Detroit and said New England's rough start correlates to a lack of execution and not effort. "We're just not having a lot of success in any area and I think as soon as we start having some you'll see a difference, but it's hard to have it when you're not making enough plays," he said. "We're not making enough plays in any phase of the game, so we've just got to perform better. I think the energy and the effort and all of that -- we're trying. Everybody's trying hard. We're just not getting it done, which is all that matters."
New York Jets: Could the Jets surround rookie quarterback Sam Darnold with one of the league's brightest talents? According to the New York Daily News, the team has contacted the Steelers to kick the tires about a trade for holdout All-Pro Le'Veon Bell. The running back has refused to sign his $14.54 million franchise tag tender, and he won't be on the sidelines when the Steelers face the Buccaneers on Monday night. The NFL trade deadline is Oct. 30, and the Jets have the cap space of about $17 million now and $90 million-plus next season to pay Bell, according to the Daily News. Bilal Powell and Isaiah Crowell currently are manning the position for the Jets, but they're no Bell. In five seasons in Pittsburgh, he has rushed for 5,336 yards and 35 touchdowns.
