Bills Fall to Jets in OT on Game-Winning Return TD
A defensive scuffle transpired at MetLife Stadium on Monday night when New York Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers exited the game after his team's first series.
Nevertheless, it was Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen who crumbled under the relentless defensive pressure,
committing four more turnovers as the Jets rallied to a 22-16 overtime victory, clinched by rookie Xavier Gipson's spectacular 65-yard punt return for a touchdown.
Plagued by three interceptions courtesy of Jordan Whitehead, a fumble, and an unyielding pass rush that pursued him throughout the night, Allen failed to elevate the Bills.
All three of his interceptions resulted from ill-advised, forced throws to well-covered receivers.
Whitehead's third interception set the stage for a late fourth-quarter touchdown that knotted the score at 13-13, thanks to a successful extra point.
During Buffalo's ensuing possession, Allen mishandled a shotgun snap, recovered it, attempted a run, only to fumble once more, granting the Jets an opportunity for a quick, go-ahead field goal with 1:48 left.
Although the Bills trailed for the first time with under two minutes remaining in regulation, they managed to advance sufficiently during their final series.
This allowed Tyler Bass to successfully kick a 50-yard field goal, narrowly grazing the left upright but ultimately falling through the other side as time expired.
