Buffalo Bills scored 20 straight points to come back and beat the Baltimore Ravens in Week 4
On a rainy day at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore, MD, the Buffalo Bills versus Baltimore Ravens was a tale of two halves.
The opening drive for the Bills ended in disaster after a Josh Allen tipped pass led to a 27-yard interception return by Marlon Humphrey, which set up the Ravens’ offense in the goal-to-go territory.
After Baltimore took an early 7-0 lead on a J.K. Dobbins touchdown run, the Bills responded with a 38-yard field goal from Tyler Bass.
The Ravens then scored on each of its next three possessions jumping out to a convincing 20-3 lead.
Right before the half, Buffalo’s offense finally found its stride. Allen looked in complete control when he found Isaiah McKenzie for pay dirt, which capped an 11-play 76-yard drive to cut Baltimore’s lead to 10 heading into the third quarter.
Buffalo’s defense turned up the heat in the second half, blitzing Jackson which forced quick throws and inconsistency for the Baltimore offense.
The Bills found themselves down a touchdown after failing to convert a 3rd and 10 in Baltimore territory, resulting in a 39-yard Tyler Bass field goal.
The Bills would force the Ravens to punt on their next drive, and the offense would answer by driving 80 yards in just nine plays to tie the game at 20 a piece following an 11-yard scamper by Josh Allen.
After scoring 17 unanswered, the Bills’ defense stifled the Ravens, never allowing Baltimore to score another point.
On Baltimore’s last drive, with the score tied at 20, Lamar Jackson looked to the end zone on fourth down but found Jordan Poyer, who tallied his second interception on the day.
The Bills drove the field and never gave the ball back to Baltimore.
After a 12-play 77-yard drive, which took 4:09 off the clock, the Bills called on Tyler Bass to win the game. Bass nailed a 21-yard field goal to give the Bills the lead with no time left on the clock.
After an awful first half, Buffalo found its composure into the second half and came away with its first one-score victory in eight such games.
Next week, the Bills are in Orchard Park against the Pittsburgh Steelers, who dropped its Week 4 contest to the New York Jets falling to 1-3 in the standings.
