Buffalo Bills establish run, tally season-high in big win over New York Jets

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (WHEC) — The 45 points scored are also the most in a game for the Buffalo Bills since week 17 of 2020.

Buffalo ran for 139 yards and four touchdowns on the ground. It was a team effort, with Devin Singletary, Isaiah McKenzie, Matt Breida and Zack Moss each finding the endzone. Breida had two scores in total, his first being a touchdown reception that gave the Bills the first points of the game.

The score was only 10-3 with 1:53 remaining in the first half, but the Bills would go rampant, scoring 28 unanswered points in less than 10 minutes of game time. All of the endzone scores were by the offense, but it was the defense setting Buffalo up, picking off Jets QB Mike White twice in that timeframe.

Buffalo accounted for four interceptions overall, one each for Jordan Poyer, Levi Wallace, Taron Johnson and Tre’Davious White.

Through the air, Josh Allen was nearly perfect, completing 21-of-28 passes for his best completion percentage in a game this season. Allen’s 366 passing yards were also a season-high.

The win keeps the Bills on top of the AFC East at 6-3, but with the New England Patriots winning at home against Cleveland, it’s still a tight divisional race. The Bills currently edge out the Pats by 0.5 a game. Buffalo hosts New England week 13 on Monday Night Football. The Bills will travel to Foxboro for a rematch in week 16.

Next week, Sean McDermott’s squad will be back at home against Indianapolis.
