Hall of Fame coach Tony Dungy says the Buffalo Bills showed favorite traits in the Super Bowl during Thursday night’s dominant win over the defending Los Angeles Rams.

Sean McDermott’s streak topped his streak and edged out on the way to a 31-10 victory at SoFi Stadium after a rampant defensive performance and featured quarterback and rival MVP Josh Allen.

Offensive coordinator Ken Dorsey excelled in his first regular season outing since succeeding New York Giants coach Brian Dabol, while quarterback Matthew Stafford endured a scorching opening day as he was sacked seven times and intercepted on three occasions.

“They really made a statement, we’ve known about their attack and Josh Allen, they’ve looked great at moving football,” Dungey, the former Super Bowl-winning coach, told Sky Sports.

“But I was really impressed with their defensive encounter. Their defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier told me he was going to play some conservative coverage to protect this young high schooler, and he was counting on the front to really stand up and they did a great job stopping my run in rushing passersby who arrived after Matthew Stafford.

“I thought the improvement on the defensive side at Buffalo made them look like the favorites in the Super Bowl.”

The Bills were an infamous 13 seconds away from reaching the AFC Championship, and likely went on to meet the Rams in last year’s Super Bowl when they saw the Kansas City Chiefs shoot a late field goal to send the division round excitement into overtime as the Reds would run out of 42 to 36 winners.

Despite the loss, the season played a role in Allen’s continued and huge growth under the position after the overwhelming skepticism that greeted him upon his arrival in the NFL as a first-round pick of 2018.

Thursday night’s show sparked Allen’s improved experience even more as the Bills seek to maximize their championship run this season. He finished the game 26 of 31 passes for 297 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions while running the ball 10 times for 56 yards and score.

“He really seems to have the timing and harmony with his receivers,” Dongye added. “He’s very confident throwing the ball, he doesn’t do weird things, he doesn’t throw it in traffic.

“I was really impressed by his maturity and this thing we talked about ‘How subtle would it be?'” “This is not even a topic of conversation anymore.”

Dungey also insisted that he did not worry about the volume of charges Allen received on the ground in a hasty attack that was successful through Devin Singletary.

Allen’s out-of-pocket threat has been demonstrated by 2,325 rushing yards for 31 touchdowns over the previous four seasons, including 763 yards for six runs at a league high of 6.3 yards per carry in 2021.

“He’s a big, strong guy and of course you can get hurt in any game but I don’t think I’d be too concerned about that,” Dungey explained.

“The thing I’ve noticed, just watching the game and seeing the warm-up before the game, just even the features we did at the Bills before the game, he is without a doubt not the captain of this team.

“I think in the past years he was young, exciting and they wanted to see him do more and more things, but now everyone in this team looks at him.

“He’s the bell cow and I think they’re going to follow him away, it sounds exciting to me.”
