Buffalo Bills win in Week 7 behind six field goals by Tyler Bass
The Buffalo Bills were able to come back and beat the New York Jets thanks to six field goals by rookie Tyler Bass.
The Buffalo Bills entered Week 7 hoping this would be a get-right game for them after losing their last two games. However, the Bills continued to struggle in the first quarter and a half of this game falling behind 10-0 to the winless New York Jets.
The offense struggled to move the ball as Josh Allen forced throws and even had a fumble that the Jets turned into a La’Mical Perine touchdown. However, after that touchdown, it was all Buffalo Bills as they were able to move the ball almost at will until they got to the red zone.
This resulted in six field goals made by rookie Tyler Bass, which was enough as the defense was able to tighten up and slow a Jets offense that welcomed back Sam Darnold, who missed the past two games.
Tyler Bass would end setting a Bills record for most field goal attempts in a game with eight and tie the franchise record for field goals made at six, which was set by Steve Christie.
The Bills would end up racking up 422 total yards as Josh Allen once again broke the 300 passing yard mark, which was his fourth game of the season surpassing that total. He also added 61 yards on the ground.
In addition to Allen, Devin Singletary and Zack Moss finally started to contribute as Moss had 73 yards from scrimmage and Singletary added 47 yards from scrimmage.
Meanwhile, the defense also stepped up and was one of the big reasons for the comeback. They were able to get pressure on Sam Darnold, which is something they have struggled with, and racked up five sacks. They also were able to force two interceptions, the first was made by rookie Dane Jackson in his first career NFL game. The second was by Jerry Hughes that essentially ended the game and any hope of a comeback for the Jets.
While there is still plenty for the coaching staff to work on, it was good to see the Buffalo Bills end their losing streak at 2 and now move to 5-2 with another divisional opponent next week against the New England Patriots.
