In the first half of Sunday’s game against the Jets, the Bills struggled to provide the offensive performance that we have seen in past games. However, they managed to avoid the turnovers that have been common under offensive coordinator Ken Dorsey’s tenure and took a narrow lead at halftime. Running back James Cook scored a five-yard pass from Josh Allen, and the Bills opened up a comfortable 16-point lead with field goals on their first three possessions.
The Jets, however, were able to score their first points of the day before halftime on a touchdown pass from Zach Wilson to Breece Hall. Despite missing a two-point conversion, the Jets rallied and narrowed the Bills’ lead to 16-6. The Jet’s score was set up by an 18-yard pass from punter Thomas Morstead to defensive back Brandin Echols on a fake punt, a roughing the passer penalty, and two other Hall catches for 26 yards.
During this drive, Bills safety Taylor Rapp was injured at the end of Hall’s touchdown and had to be taken off the field in an ambulance. However, Rapp was able to move on his own as he was being taken away. This drive was the only extended drive of the half for the Jets, who had only 28 yards and three first downs before that possession – showing that the Bills have had better success on that side of the ball so far.
Allen has thrown for 128 yards, a touchdown, and an interception on a Hail Mary at the end of
