Bills join an NFL-wide trend with a 10-point comeback victory + 9 other numbers to know from Week 7


22 - The Bills overcame a 10-point deficit to defeat the New York Jets, 18-10, making them the 21st team this season to overcome a deficit of at least 10 points to win in 2020. Then the Arizona Cardinals did the same thing on Sunday night beating Seattle in overtime after falling behind 10-0 early to make it 22 teams.

The 2020 season now has the second-most teams to come back from a deficit of at least 10 points to win through Week 7 in league history. Only the 1987 season had more such comebacks (23).

300 + 50 - Josh Allen threw for 300-plus yards and ran for 50-plus yards in each game against the Jets this season. The only quarterbacks in last 70 years to have more than two games in their career with 300 + 50 are Steve Young (8), Michael Vick (4), Cam Newton (3), and Russell Wilson (3) according to Football Perspective.

4 - The Bills defense only allowed 4 yards in the second half, marking the fewest yards allowed in the second half by the Bills since at least 2000.

6 – Buffalo's six sacks on defense is the high water mark for the season so far in a single game. In fact, the Bills six QB takedowns on Sunday against the Jets is more than they've had in the last four games combined (5).

30 – Josh Allen's 30 completions on Sunday were the second most he's had in a game in his career. Buffalo's QB stayed patient and took the underneath throws that the Jets were willing to give to him and still finished with over 300 yards passing. The only time Allen had more completions than he did Sunday was in Week 1 against this same Jets team (33).

30 – Sunday's win marked the 30th in Sean McDermott's head coaching career with the Bills, moving him past Wade Phillips and into fourth place on the team's all-time wins list. He's now just seven victories behind Chuck Knox.

232 – This was the total net yardage differential between the Bills and Jets on Sunday. Buffalo rolled up 422 total net yards on offense, while the Jets managed just 190. It was the largest net yardage differential between the Bills and an opponent this season.

The last time the Bills had a greater net yardage differential in a game was in Week 12 of the 2019 season when they outgained the Denver Broncos by 290 total yards (424 to 134).

130 – The fourth quarter continues to be a strong one for Josh Allen. Buffalo's signal caller leads the AFC in fourth-quarter passer rating with a 130 rating. He also ranks third in the league.

Allen is completing almost 75 percent of his passes in the money quarter while averaging almost 11 yards per attempt with five touchdowns and just one interception.

106 – Buffalo's total penalty yardage in Sunday's game were the most in almost two seasons. Their 106 penalty yards were the most since A Dec. 2nd, 2018 game against Miami when they had 120 penalty yards. The team's 11 penalties against the Jets was just the third time in the last 19 games that the team had double-digit penalties assessed against them.

Top 5 – Andre Roberts delivered another big play in Sunday's win with a 58-yard kick return to set the Bills offense up in Jets' territory. That kick return helped lift Roberts into the top five in the league in kick return average. He currently ranks fourth with a figure of 29.3 yards per return.

Roberts also ranks third in the league in punt return average (13.1). The only other player in the league who ranks in the top five in both kick and punt return average is Roberts' former teammate and current Pittsburgh Steeler, Ray-Ray McCloud.
