The Bills offense has been struggling in the first half, relying on field goals to keep their lead against the Jets. However, in the third quarter, things started to turn around for them. With just 6:29 left in the period, Josh Allen connected with Khalil Shakir for his third touchdown pass of the day. This extended the Bills’ advantage to 29-6.
On the play, Jets cornerback Sauce Gardner attempted to intercept the ball but missed, allowing Shakir to break through for an impressive 81-yard touchdown. This marked the longest play from scrimmage in the NFL season so far.
Prior to this touchdown, Allen had also scored a touchdown on the Bills’ first drive of the second half, connecting with running back Ty Johnson. In his first game with interim offensive coordinator Joe Brady calling the plays, Allen has completed 19-of-29 passes for 273 yards.
Despite their struggles in the first half, it appears that the Bills are starting to find their footing and take control of the game. Meanwhile, the Jets seem to be struggling to find any offensive momentum and have yet to attempt a shot on target after three quarters.
