Tempers flare and Allen shines as Bills beat Jaguars

Local News

Flags weren’t the only thing thrown Sunday at New Era Field.

Josh Allen was throwing fist pumps.

Leonard Fournette and Shaq Lawson were just throwing their fists.

There was plenty of trash talk leading up the rematch of last years AFC Wild Card game.

In his first action since week six in Houston, Josh Allen had a perfect first quarter.

The Bills rookie complete four of five passes for 125 yards, a touchdown and a 158.3 passer rating.

Most of those yards came on Allen’s best pass of his young career. A 75-yard strike to Robert Foster for a touchdown. The longest touchdown pass by a rookie in Bills history.

The fighting Doug Marrone’s answered in the second quarter with a pair of Leonard Fournette touchdown runs to tie the game up heading to halftime.

Tempers flared in the third quarter.

After a long completion to Donte Moncrief put the Jags at the Bills one, a fight broke out after the play.
Fournette and Shaq Lawson threw punches and were both ejected from the game. Lawson had to be restrained from Fournette as the two headed toward the tunnel.

Once the scuffle was cleaned up, the Jaguars missed a 42-yard field goal and the game remained tied.

On the first play of the 4th quarter, Allen executed a QB draw right up the gut and scored the eventual game-winning touchdown from 14 yards out.

Allen set a franchise record with 99 rushing yards, the most ever in a game by a Bills quarterback. The previous record was 79 held by Tyrod Taylor. 

Allen was the team’s leading rusher again while LeSean McCoy rushed for 47 yards on 17 carries.

The Bills win their second game in a row for the first time this season.
