With at 28-3 with 8:05 left in third quarter, any team can get complacent and take their took off the gas peddle. That is exactly what Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills did Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams, allowing the Rams to rally. Allen not only threw an interception, but fumbled the ball as well, setting up the Rams to make a historic comeback. On the heels of those two turnovers, Jared Goff led the Rams to 29 unanswered points and a lead of 32-28 with 4:30 left in the game. Allen and the Bills responded with game ending score, as Allen found Tyler Kroft in the end zone with 15 seconds remaining. With the win, the Bills improve to a 3-0 start, the first time the franchise has started with that record since 2008. The Rams leave Buffalo at 2-1 after almost completing an amazing comeback.
The Bills were again led by quarterback Josh Allen, who ended the day completing 24 of 33 pass attempts for 311 yards and four touchdowns. While Allen did throw an interception and fumble the ball once, he also added four carries for eight yards and a touchdown. Allen has now contributed to twelve total touchdowns in the first three weeks of the season for the Bills, which is a franchise record. Jim Kelly held the record until yesterday, when Kelly contributed ten scores for the team during the first three games in the 1991 season.
