After a rough outing in Week 2, both the Bills offense and defense bounced back against Miami in a 41-14 rout at Sun Life Stadium on Sunday.

A week after surrendering 507 total yards to New England, the Buffalo defense shut down the Dolphins, picking off the Ryan Tannehill three times, including a pick-six late in the second quarter as the Bills opened up a 27-0 halftime lead.

Tannehill was held to 297 yards passing. He threw two touchdown passes in the second half.

The Buffalo run defense was stout as well, limiting the Dolphins to just 102 yards as a team. Jonas Gray led Miami with 48 yards while Lamar Miller had just 38.

Offensively, Tyrod Taylor picked a part the Miami secondary on the Bills first two series connecting with Charles Clay and LeSean McCoy for touchdowns.

Clay, who played for Miami from 2011-2014, had five catches for 82 yards in his return to South Beach.

McCoy had just 16 yards rushing.

Fellow running back Karlos Williams continued to dazzle, rushing 110 yards and his third touchdown of the season, a 41-yard scamper to give Buffalo a 41-14 lead late in the fourth quarter.

Sammy Watkins finished with one catch for 39 yards but left the game and did not return after suffering a calf injury.

The Bills return home next Sunday to host Eli Manning and the New York Giants. Kickoff is scheduled for 1 p.m. at Ralph Wilson Stadium.
