Defensive slugfest ensues, Jets get the divisional win in December
In a game that really didn’t mean anything to the Buffalo Bills, the New York Jets took advantage of the short time that Josh Allen played and took a regular-season finale win, 13-6. No scoring happened until a Jets field goal by Sam Ficken, who missed his first two kicks. Stephen Hauschka of the Bills added one of his own in the third quarter to tie the score at 3-3.
Buffalo’s only lead came early in the 4th quarter with another field goal. However, just like the week 1 2020 matchup mentioned beforehand, Crowder scored on a 1 yd TD pass from now-Carolina Panthers quarterback Sam Darnold.
Bills backup QB Matt Barkley went 18-35, for 232 yards and 2 INT’s. Maybe this was part of the reason the Bills decided to bring him in over Mitch Trubisky this offseason. We’ll see in time how this Trubisky move plays out and if it was the right one for the Bills.
