Before we say goodbye to Week 4 for good, let’s take a look back at what happened for a quick rundown of what happened and the injuries that matter.
The Bills were on the ropes again but got bailed out by John Harbaugh’s questionable decisions. Robert Salah cashed another receipt. But the most concerning thing that happened in the division was the handling of the Tua Tagovailoa situation in Miami. If the Dolphins are without Tua for an extended period, they’ll need to figure out how to make their offense work with Teddy Bridgewater.
Buffalo Bills – Buffalo was pushed to the brink once again, but they pulled off the victory against the Ravens. Trailing 20-3, Josh Allen chipped away at the lead and ran for 70 yards and a touchdown. Meanwhile the Bills defense made a huge defensive stop on the goal line.
Miami Dolphins – Tua Tagovailoa was knocked out of the game with a concussion after he took a brutal hit in the pocket. It was an ugly scene and it happened just days after he took a late hit in the Bills game that was either a concussion or a back injury. Either way it was two big hits on Miami’s starting quarterback and there’s no telling when or if he’ll return. With Bridgewater at the helm, the Phins decided to go heavy on Raheem Mostert, Trent Sherfield and Tyreek Hill this week, and go light on Jaylen Waddle and Chase Edmonds. There’s no telling if this target share was just this game or more of what to expect moving forward.
New England Patriots – The Pats lose another quarterback and needed to turn to rookie Bailey Zappe to help force overtime. Ultimately, the Pats lost the game but considering they were down to their rookie third-string QB, and pushed the Packers to the end of overtime, there are silver linings. Brian Hoyer left the game early due to a head injury. It’s difficult to determine any patterns or tendencies out of this game due to the change at quarterbacks. However, the Pats leaned on Damien Harris, Rhamondre Stevenson, and the defense to nearly pull it off.
New York Jets – With Zack Wilson under center for the first time in 2022, the Jets win their second game. Wilson threw for 252 yards, a touchdown with two picks. Braxton Berrios was a vulture and threw a touchdown pass near the goal line too. We don’t want to read too much into one game, but Wilson favored Corey Davis a lot, but spread the targets out evenly amongst six different receivers.
