Buffalo Bills take down Cleveland Browns after Tyler Bass’s big day
DETROIT, MI (WHEC) – The Buffalo Bills put together a 31 to 23 win over Cleveland to stop a 2-game losing streak. 19 of those points belonged to Tyler Bass.
The Bills kicker was 6-for-6 on field goals, tying his career-high for most FGs made in a game. He was also good on his only extra point attempt.
The Bills battled through what looked like some struggles you could blame on a wacky week of travel getting from snowy Orchard Park to Detroit, Michigan.
Still, Josh Allen was 18-27 for 197 yards and a touchdown. He also didn’t throw any interceptions, something that had become a cause for concern after three straight games with at least two picks.
Dawson Knox, Gabe Davis, and Stefon Diggs each went for at least 40 receiving yards, putting together a balanced attack through the air. On the ground, Devin Singletary scored a touchdown, his third in the last two weeks.
Defensively, the Bills allowed 396 yards of total offense, but came up with some big 3rd and 4th down stops, forcing the Browns to settle for field goals on a few occasions. Matt Milano put together a big game, finishing with 12 tackles, 3 of them for a loss, 1 sack, and a fumble recovery.
Despite it not being the prettiest game, the players and coaches at One Bills Drive were only concerned about coming out on top.
“We easily could of folded and allowed it to be an excuse for us, but again, trusting the guys that we have in this locker room that are true professionals, that do things the right way,” said Allen.
With the win, Buffalo (7-3) moves up to second place in the AFC East, with only a tiebreaker separating them from the first place Miami Dolphins.
Buffalo has a short turnaround, before they head back to Detroit for a Thanksgiving Day matchup with the Lions.
