Buffalo Bills offense inconsistent in the second half

In the second half, the offense would still fail to do anything with the ball, as the Bills had only two possessions in the third quarter, due to Jacksonville's long possession time. At the start of the fourth quarter, the Bills would look to shift momentum after Lawrence's second turnover, giving the Bills the ball back on their 32-yard-line. 

This drive included a penalty (which was a common theme in this game) that killed the momentum, resulting in a third and 15, forcing Allen to put up a 50/50 ball to Diggs that resulted in an interception, giving Jacksonville the ball inside the 10-yard line. 

The Jaguars would then drive 71 yards for a touchdown, which seemingly looked like the nail in the coffin with around six minutes left in regulation.

However, there would be some chaotic drives that would occur. Allen would rally the offense and lead an 81-yard touchdown drive in less than four minutes. 

Lawrence would then respond with a one-minute, 75-yard touchdown drive, capped off by a 35-yard Travis Etienne run. Allen would get the ball on the 25, hit Harty way downfield for 45 yards and Gabriel Davis for 29 yards, then cap off the drive with a three-yard touchdown run, only taking 45 seconds off the clock!

The Bills would try an onside kick but failed to recover, letting the Jaguars run down the clock with seconds left for the Bills to get the ball back and turn over the ball off a failed lateral by Diggs.
