In a disappointing Monday Night Football game, the Buffalo Bills suffered a tough loss to the Denver Broncos, giving up four turnovers in the process. Despite scoring a go-ahead touchdown in the final minutes, a pass interference penalty against Taron Johnson led to the Broncos securing a game-winning field goal, leaving the final score at 24-22.
Although Broncos kicker Wil Lutz initially missed the field goal attempt, the Bills were penalized for having 12 players on defense, giving Lutz a second chance, which he took advantage of.
This loss drops the Bills’ season record to 5-5 and pushes them down to 10th place in the AFC standings.
Josh Allen had a mixed performance, throwing for 177 yards and a touchdown while also scoring on the ground. Unfortunately, he also had three turnovers, with a fumble and two interceptions.
Despite the turnovers, James Cook had a standout moment, gaining 120 total yards, although he did fumble twice in the process.
The Bills’ offense struggled in the first half, facing a 15-8 deficit at halftime, hindered by three turnovers that negated positive plays.
The Bills’ defense, led by A.J. Epenesa with two sacks and three quarterback hits, provided opportunities for the offense to take the lead. Taron Johnson’s forced fumble in the third quarter, recovered by Rasul Douglas, led to a crucial touchdown run from Latavius Murray, a former Broncos player in 2022.
After a series of punts, the Bills and Broncos exchanged touchdown drives, but the Bills’ offense left too much time on the clock for the Broncos to set up a field goal attempt, ultimately leading to the loss.
Highmark Stadium experienced an emotional rollercoaster with Lutz’s missed field goal followed by the penalty against the Bills, resulting in a stunned silence from the home crowd.
The Bills will have a chance to bounce back when they host the New York Jets next Sunday at 4:25 p.m. at Highmark Stadium.
