The Buffalo Bills carry immense pressure during the 2022 NFL season after being named one of the favorites to win Super Bowl LVII.
Save for their Week 3 loss to the Miami Dolphins, they have been fulfilling those expectations throughout the first four weeks.
While their offensive production has taken a hit, their defense has their back, especially in the second half.

The Bills’ public relations department tweeted, “The Bills have only allowed seven points in the second half this season. That marks the fewest second-half points allowed by a team through four games since the 2009 Denver Broncos (7 points).”
Only the Dolphins have scored against the Bills in the third and fourth quarters.
If not for that three-yard touchdown run by Chase Edmonds, Buffalo might have won that road game and be 4-0 instead.
Still, the Bills defense went back to its dominating ways in Week 4 versus the Baltimore Ravens.
Lamar Jackson and company raced to a 20-10 halftime lead, only to be outscored in the second half, 13-0.
Tyler Bass‘ field goal conversion with no time left gave Baltimore their second defeat at home this season.
Aside from shutting down opponents, the Bills have collected six interceptions in the second half, four courtesy of Jordan Poyer.

Their exploits on defense make them the second-best team in terms of total yards allowed at 234.5 per game.
They are second in passing yards allowed (150.8) and third in rushing yards allowed (83.8) per game.
The Bills are surrendering 14.5 points per contest, the second-best rate in the league.
