Josh Allen’s 24–18 victory over the Buccaneers puts the Buffalo Bills back on track.

About the Bills:-

The Buffalo Bills, professional American football team, the are based in the Buffalo-Niagara Falls metropolitan area. The Bills, one of the National Football League’s member clubs, are located in the American Football Conference East division. Highmark Stadium in Orchard Park, New York serves as the team’s home field.

The Bills hosted the visiting Buccaneers on “Thursday Night Football,” and they gave them a rock fight of a night. The Bills won 24–18, improving their record to 5–3 on the season.

Meanwhile, the Buccaneers’ early promise from Baker Mayfield and the offense gave way to more serious worries as they dropped to 3-4 and a full game behind the NFC South-leading Atlanta Falcons.

On the opening drive of the game, the Buffalo Bills offense set the tone for what they wanted to accomplish.

The following details each team’s performance:

After saving some no-huddle play for late-game situations in recent weeks, the Bills moved the ball quickly down the field. On the second play, Josh Allen was able to use his legs for an eight-yard gain. The 10-play, 77-yard drive was capped off by a 37-yard field goal by Tyler Bass, the kicker, but more significantly, it demonstrated an early change in the capabilities of the Bills attack.

Josh Allen’s rushing touchdown and a Tyler Bass field goal gave Buffalo a quick 10-point lead. The latter of those scores occurred after the Bills had forced a punt and returned it to the Tampa Bay 23-yard line after being stopped on the goal line on their previous drive. After a cutback for a 13-yard touchdown, Allen scored by scurrying out of pressure and outpacing three Bucs defenders to the end zone. With that, he tied Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback Steve Young for the second-most running touchdowns by a quarterback in history with his 43rd career score. Allen needs 33 more to surpass Cam Newton’s 75-yard NFL QB record.

The Bills scored 17 points against the Buccaneers after combining for 10 points in each of the previous three games’ opening halves. Many offensive players participated, and the offense orchestrated five drives of eight plays or longer, taking early control of the game. This was something that had been missing routinely in recent weeks and became increasingly problematic as the game progressed. With seven rushes for 42 yards, including a running touchdown, Allen made good use of his legs. Only his third 300-yard passing game of the season, the quarterback completed 31 of 40 throws (77.5%) for 324 yards, two passing touchdowns, and an interception. It was also his greatest throwing effort in weeks.

The Bills (5-3) had success with Allen throwing for 324 yards on 31 of 40 passes, capping a week of doubts about his “low-energy” style and Buffalo’s sluggish offensive execution.

This was a positive development for the Bills, but they still have work to do as some of their problems carry over into the second half. With more challenging opponents to come, it was sufficient against Tampa Bay.

After the Bucs mounted their own field goal drive and narrowed the margin to seven points, Allen created a significant opportunity for Tampa by intercepting a pass that Antoine Winfield had tipped into the air. Given that Allen hasn’t started consecutive games without committing a turnover since 2020—now 42 games in a row—it wasn’t shocking. The game was soon tied at ten two plays later when Tampa Bay Pro Bowl wide receiver Chris Godwin, who finished with 54 receiving yards on five receptions, found the end zone on a short, three-yard slant.

In a few words, describe the game:-

The defensive problem of giving up big drives late in games returned, so it wasn’t flawless or even close to it, but after previous troubles against beatable opponents, all three units occasionally raised their game and earned the victory.
