The Bills offense struggled in the first half of the game, relying on field goals to score points. However, they managed to find success in the third quarter when Josh Allen connected with Khalil Shakir for his third touchdown pass of the day. With just 6:29 left in the third quarter, the Bills’ lead against the Jets grew to 29-6.
On this 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 long touchdown pass, Allen 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 success so far, it appears that the Jets are struggling to find their offensive rhythm and may have a difficult time making a comeback in this game.
