In the third quarter, the Bills offense has found new life as they extended their lead over the Jets with a long touchdown pass by Josh Allen. With just 6:29 left in the quarter, Allen connected with Khalil Shakir for his third touchdown of the day, making it 29-6 in favor of Buffalo. The play was set up when Jets cornerback Sauce Gardner attempted to intercept the ball but missed, allowing Shakir to break through for an impressive 81-yard touchdown. This marked the longest play from scrimmage in the NFL season so far.
Before the long touchdown pass, Allen also scored a touchdown on the Bills’ first drive of the second half, connecting with running back Ty Johnson. In his first game with interim offensive coordinator Joe Brady calling the plays, Allen has completed 19-of-29 passes for 273 yards. Despite this success, it seems that the Jets are struggling to keep up and may not be able to make a comeback in the game.
