Sunday in the NFL | Allen throws three touchdown passes as Bills crush Jets 32-6

Josh Allen threw three touchdown passes and the Buffalo Bills dominated the New York Jets 32-6 on Sunday.

In a duel between two teams from the Eastern section of the American Association, the Bills gave the Jets no chance, who scored points in six of their first eight offensive sequences.

“We played at an excellent level today,” Allen said. Every season there are ups and downs. There will be adversity. This is how you will bounce back. »

The Bills (6-5) scored more than 25 points for the first time in seven weeks.

The team built a 9-0 lead following three Tyler Bass field goals and Allen then led the charge for the Bills with three touchdown passes.

Allen extended his streak of games with at least one touchdown pass to 19, surpassing Jim Kelly’s team record of 18, spanning from the 1986 to 1987 season.

The Jets (4-6) lost a third straight game. Starting quarterback Zach Wilson was benched with 2:17 left in the third quarter. Tim Boyle finished the game.

After defending Wilson in recent weeks, Saleh said he would watch replays before making a decision on his starting quarterback.

“We will look at all of this,” Saleh said. I’m not going to answer these questions at this time. »

On the Bills side, they were guided by Allen.

“I like Josh,” said wide receiver Khalil Shakir, who scored a touchdown on an 81-yard catch and run. What I accomplished tonight is thanks to him. But tonight, it never stopped. »

Allen completed 20 of 32 passes for 275 yards. He was the victim of an interception. The Bills quarterback completed a 26-yard touchdown pass to Ty Johnson on fourth down and a yard to complete the team’s first offensive sequence in the third quarter.

Wilson’s nine-yard touchdown pass to Breece Hall with 45 seconds left in the first half was the Jets’ first touchdown in three weeks.

Wilson finished the game with seven of 15 successful passes, for 81 yards and an interception. Boyle completed seven of his 14 pass attempts, for 33 yards and also an interception.

The Bills’ recent acquisition, cornerback Rasul Douglas, threw two interceptions and recovered a ball. It was the Bills’ first interception in seven games as well.

The Bills and the Jets, who are not in their first duel, had some friction after the game. Bills offensive tackle Dion Dawkins got into a skirmish with Jets defensive lineman Michael Clemons in the tunnel leading to the locker rooms of the two teams.

“I’m not a Jets fan, they have some very disrespectful players,” Dawkins said.

Clemons did not speak to reporters after the game, while Sauce Gardner said he tried to stop the argument.

“There were a lot of emotions,” he said. It’s all frustration. I don’t have a problem with any of them. I just wanted to fix the situation. »

Jets player Tony Adams left the game temporarily due, according to team head coach Robert Saleh, to a dislocated finger.
