Second half was a different story for Josh Allen

At this point, Allen was playing okay, or "good enough" as the analysts would say, after throwing a questionable interception and leading his team to the end zone on one drive.

The Jets would get the ball at the start of the second half, and respond with a field goal after a series of passes and a big 20-yard run by Breece Hall.

Another questionable Allen interception would come on the following Bills drive. Allen and his offense were seemingly moving the chains with a series of short passes. Then, on the Bills ' yard line, Allen would throw another deep ball into double coverage, resulting in another interception.

A series of punts from both teams would occur. Allen would get the ball back on their 15. The offense was moving the chains again, as the Bills would get up to their 41-yard-line. Then, on 3rd and 2, instead of taking what the Jets would give him, Allen would try to hit Gabe Davis on a corner route, resulting in his third interception.

This would be the most costly turnover of the game, as the Jets would drive 57 yards, and Jets star wide-receiver Garrett Wilson would make a spectacular catch in the endzone, tying the game up 13 a piece.

Allen's fourth turnover would be on his very next snap, as he would botch the snap, recover it, then fumble the ball for the Jets to recover it on the Bills 27-yard-line. The defense would only allow a field goal on the drive, putting the Jets ahead by three.

Allen would have one of his better drives of the night, as he would lead the offense 43 yards on a series of completions to Diggs, setting Tyler Bass up with a 50-yard field goal, doinking the ball in off the back of the left up-right to send the game to OT.

The Bills would receive the ball first, resulting in a Spencer Brown penalty, an incomplete pass, a three-yard draw to James Cook, and another incomplete pass.

The game would then end with a terrible punt by Sam Martin, resulting in Jets' undrafted rookie Xavier Gipson returning it for 65 yards for a walk-off touchdown.
