Buffalo Bills 6, Baltimore Ravens 10: Second-half open thread

New, comments

Josh Allen needs to correct himself, and quickly.

The Buffalo Bills haven’t solved the Baltimore Ravens yet, and they trail them 10-6 at halftime. The Ravens brought their trademark misdirection offense to the fold, but the Bills have mostly held their own at this point in the game. The Ravens do have ten points scored, but they’ve also punted three times. Buffalo also intercepted Lamar Jackson, his first interception since Week 5.

That said, the Baltimore defense is the star here. They’ve blitzed the hell out of Josh Allen, who hasn’t been comfortable yet in this game. Allen’s missed several deep blitz-beater throws, and the only working tactic on offense has been a ground-heavy pin and pull attack. Allen lost a fumble after taking a sack in the pocket, which the Ravens turned into points.

Allen’s been under so much duress, he did injure his ankle late in the second quarter. He’s still out there, and he led the team through their two-minute drill at the end of the half. He finally found a passing rhythm late in the half, but the Bills had to settle for a 47-yard field goal attempt, nailed by Stephen Hauschka.

Injuries

Josh Allen had his foot stepped on late in the second quarter, and limped off the field. The training staff taped up his ankle, and he’ll probably play as long as he can handle the pain.

Ravens tight end Mark Andrews injured his right knee in the first quarter. The team’s leading receiver, he’s questionable to return.
