Josh Allen engineered a game-winning drive late in the fourth quarter as the Buffalo Bills rallied from down 20-3 to beat the Baltimore Ravens 23-20. Tyler Bass kicked a game-winning field goal as time expired and the Bills improved to 3-1 on the season.
Buffalo's comeback marked the first time it overcame a deficit of 17 points or more since 2011 against the New England Patriots.
Josh Allen shook off a shaky start, finishing with 213 yard passing, 1 passing TD, 70 yards rushing and 1 rushing TD.
The Bills had no rhythm early on in the game as Allen threw an interception on the first possession and the Ravens offense took advantage and scored the opening touchdown. Buffalo continued to struggle on both sides, eventually falling behind 20-3 in the second quarter.
But Josh Allen found Isaiah McKenzie for a 4-yard TD before halftime to get momentum.
In the second half, the Bills outscored the Ravens 13-0. Allen had an 11-yard TD rush to tie the game up at the end of the third quarter. Late in the fourth, Jordan Poyer recorded his second INT of the game to prevent a Baltimore score.
Allen drove the Bills 77 yards down the field over the final four minutes to set up Bass' game-winner.
