On Sunday, the Bills’ special teams made a redemption after a major blunder in their loss to the Broncos last Monday. Reggie Gilliam, the running back, made a big play by breaking down Xavier Gipson, the Jets returner, and forcing a fumble that was recovered by Quintin Morris at the Jets’ 21-yard line. Despite their excellent field position, the Bills were unable to convert the drive into a touchdown.
However, after a short drive and a fumble, Jets defensive tackle Quinnen Williams sacked Josh Allen, forcing the Bills to settle for a field goal attempt by Tyler Bass. Bass successfully made a 48-yard field goal, giving the Bills a 3-0 lead with just 90 seconds left in Buffalo. The early success of special teams and defense gave the Bills an early advantage in the game.
