Buffalo Bills’ offense back on track, scoring in ten straight quarters and counting

The Buffalo Bills had a blistering start to their season, with MVP candidate Josh Allen leading the offense to more than 30 points per game on average and a 4-0 start. After a lull for the middle portion of the season, the offense has kicked it back in gear. They’ve scored in each of the last ten quarters and could extend that streak next week against the Los Angeles Chargers.

In those ten quarters, Buffalo has 91 points—a pace that would average more than 36 points per game. The league leaders are hovering just under 32 points per game for the 2020 season.

The last quarter they were held scoreless was the second period against the New England Patriots. In that quarter, Buffalo had two meaningful drives. One stalled after five plays gained 12 yards. Later, the Bills drove down and had 2nd-and-3 on the Patriots’ 36 when a holding call knocked them out of field goal range. On 3rd-and-long, Allen threw an interception.

Buffalo will look to add to the scoring streak next week when they play the Chargers, who have given up points in each of their last ten quarters of play (before they play the New York Jets this Sunday).
