  • Broadcast information Vikings vs. Bills

The Bills dominated Kirk Cousins and the Vikings on Sunday, forcing three turnovers en route to a shocking 27-6 blowout victory.

The performance likely sparked memories for Beane of a Wyoming win last November over Colorado State in which Allen led the Cowboys in both passing (138 yards) and rushing (60 yards). Minnesota is a really hard place to play and Allen made it look easy on a 75-yard touchdown drive to start the game.

Though Allen took three sacks and fumbled three times, the Bills were able to recover all of them.

You would think without running back LeSean McCoy and being on the road, the Bills would have a very hard time running the football. I could spin zone this to say that this would have given the Vikings the ball back, the offense could have driven down the field and someone could have scored to get out to a 7-0 lead.

Cousins was outplayed by Allen, a rookie making his second career start.

"He was decisive early, and that's important", coach Sean McDermott said.

The team released it's game day roster ahead of its matchup against the Vikings, and the running back wasn't listed as active. Under pressure, he was driven to the ground for a sack and a loss of seven yards. The Vikings beat the Bills in all three meetings under Green. C Russell Bodine, who started in place of Ryan Groy, limped off with leg cramps in the third quarter. Lewis left with an injury in the fourth quarter, as did Murphy (ankle).

In addition to Cook, the Vikings played without defensive end Everson Griffen (knee), punt returner Marcus Sherels (rib) and tight end David Morgan (knee).

The Vikings (1-1-1) have returned from the NFC championship game appearance with again one of the strongest rosters in the league, a desirable mix of experience and potential going on five seasons under the guidance of Zimmer and his staff. They came into Sunday without the services of LeSean McCoy. Cousins and the Vikings are now 1-1-1 on the year, facing the Rams in Los Angeles on Thursday night.
