Buffalo Bills lose on Tom Brady touchdown pass in OT
TAMPA BAY, FL (WHEC) — Buffalo used a 24-3 second half run to force overtime, where they lost on a Tom Brady TD toss.
Buffalo’s loss to New England on Monday Night Football had reporters asking Jordan Poyer and Micah Hyde if they were embarrassed about the way the Patriots defeated them on the ground. The Bills didn’t take too kind to that and six days later have the challenge of facing a man they know all too well – Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

For the second straight week, Buffalo gives up a 40-yard rushing touchdown. This time it’s Leonard Fournette from 47 yards.

Bucs knocking on the door.

Bills sustained a nice drive but couldn’t capitalize in the red-zone.
Mike Evans completes another long Tampa Bay drive in the red-zone. Buccaneers add to their lead.
Mike Evans is the perfect red-zone target for Tom Brady. Something Buffalo is really missing when they get in the final 20.— Mat Mlodzinski (@MatMlodzinski) December 12, 2021
Tampa Bay takes it in again, this time with a Tom Brady sneak. It’s 24-3, Tampa Bay, at halftime.

After their first drive, here’s how it has gone for the #Buccaneers:
TD, FG, TD, TD, Punt
Bills strike first in the third quarter on a Josh Allen run. Buffalo trails 24-10, but cuts into the lead nonetheless.
Looked like some pent-up aggression by Allen after running in for the #Bills‘ 1st TD of the day.— Jackson Roberts (@WHEC_JRoberts) December 12, 2021
Understandable. Very understandable.
It’s still Tampa Bay on top 24-10, heading into the fourth quarter.
Dane Jackson nearly makes a game-changing interception. Instead, Tampa Bay keeps possession and Ryan Succop drills a field goal to extend their lead to 27-10.
Josh Allen tosses his first passing touchdown to Dawson Knox. 27-17, Bucs.
The Dawson Knox touchdown at least gives Buffalo a chance to get it to a one possession game.— Mat Mlodzinski (@MatMlodzinski) December 13, 2021
Not just a safety blanket. He’s a part of this offense as much as anyone.
Josh Allen leads a drive to another touchdown to Gabriel Davis. Buffalo pulls within three, down 27-24.
Touchdown: Josh Allen to Gabriel Davis.— Mat Mlodzinski (@MatMlodzinski) December 13, 2021
That was the best Bills drive of the game and resembled the offense last year.
We have a game.
Matt Milano sacks Tom Brady on third down. Buffalo takes over, down three, with 3:05 left.
Tyler Bass ties it at 27-27 with 22 seconds remaining.
Bills Bucs: a tale of 2 halves. https://t.co/bKjbXeeR0S— Jackson Roberts (@WHEC_JRoberts) December 13, 2021
Overtime in Tampa Bay. Buffalo will receive the kickoff.
Tom Brady finds Breshad Perriman for the game winning score. Tampa Bay – 33, Buffalo – 27.
Truly as tough as it gets right. 33-27 Bucs is the final in OT.#Bills suffer back to back losses for the first time this year. (7-6).— Jackson Roberts (@WHEC_JRoberts) December 13, 2021
