Josh Allen's fumble in third quarter

After the two teams traded punts to start the second half, the Buffalo Bills were moving the ball down the field. They reached just outside of the red zone and faced a 3rd and long but were well within Tyler Bass' range.

Unfortunately, Christian Wilkins made a great move on rookie O'Cyrus Torrence that didn't give Josh Allen any time in the pocket. Allen would try to avoid the rush but Wilkins got his hand on the ball to knock it free and would be able to recover it before the two players reached the ground.

It would be the third turnover for Josh Allen but also the last one as the Buffalo Bills took control really from that point on with 14 straight points. The game could have been very different, and may not even been competitive, if the Buffalo Bills could have avoided some of these mistakes.
