Recapping the annihilation of the Jets

Buffalo’s offense was criticized for failing to score a touchdown while All Pro quarterback Josh Allen had reverted to some of his hero ball ways in a shocking loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars. All that was a distant memory on Sunday as Allen looked incredibly sharp, moving the offense up and down the field at will. Buffalo rolled up a season-high 489 yards of offense, scored a critical touchdown right before the halftime, and got itself back on track in a demolition of the Jets. Allen had success throwing on first down, the running game found room to run, the entire secondary came away with big turnovers, and offensive lineman Spencer Brown and tight end Dawson Knox made their triumphant returns to the lineup.

Report card, observations, reactions to Week 10 win

Buffalo’s offense set a season-high for yards of offense (489), the Josh Allen-to-Stefon Diggs connection is once again clicking, and Buffalo’s stout defense picked off Mike White four times and didn’t allow a touchdown until garbage time. It all adds up to a convincing win as the Bills got their groove back on Sunday.
