Bills 7, Packers 0: Dawson Knox 1-yard TD

After a fourth-down stop of the Packers, the Bills marched 61 yards in eight plays to score the game’s first points. Josh Allen converted 3rd-and-14 with a 20-yard run, and then his legs produced the touchdown when he scrambled left and found tight end Dawson Knox wide-open for the score. Devin Singletary ripped off a 30-yard run to get the drive on the move. The Bills already have 66 yards rushing.

Bills 14, Packers 0: Stefon Diggs 26-yard TD

The Bills needed only four plays to go 51 yards and score again early in the second quarter. Devin Singletary had a 16-yard catch, and then Stefon Diggs cooked Rasul Douglas on a double move for the touchdown. Josh Allen already has two touchdown passes. Can the Packers respond to more adversity?

Bills 14, Packers 7: Romeo Doubs 19-yard TD

The Packers are alive! A long scoring drive powered by the run game found the end zone on Aaron Rodgers’ 19-yard touchdown pass to rookie Romeo Doubs. Aaron Jones rushed for 44 yards on the march. This team needed a spark. Maybe this 12-play scoring drive will provide it.

Bills 21, Packers 7: Isaiah McKenzie 7-yard TD

The Bills immediately responded, going 80 yards in eight plays – aided by a 15-yard penalty on Quay Walker – to get into the end zone for the third consecutive drive. Rookie James Cook had a 17-yard run. The Bills are just gashing the Packers defense in the first half.

Bills 24, Packers 7: Tyler Bass 42-yard FG

The Bills scored on four straight possessions to end the first half. A 53-yard completion from Josh Allen to Stefon Diggs set up the field goal as the second quarter finished. Can the Packers overcome a 17-point deficit in the second half and avoid a fourth straight loss? Green Bay gets the ball to open the third quarter.

Bills 24, Packers 10: Mason Crosby 38-yard FG

The Packers thought they had a touchdown to open the second half, but an offensive pass interference penalty on Robert Tonyan negated the score and eventually led to a field goal try. Aaron Jones and A.J. Dillon both gashed the Bills for big runs, but Dillon and Josiah Deguara left during the drive with injuries.

Bills 27, Packers 10: Tyler Bass 38-yard FG

Still looking for a defensive stop. The Bills gained 51 yards in eight plays to set up a field goal and reclaim a three-score lead. Buffalo has scored on five straight possessions. A 29-yard connection between Josh Allen and Gabe Davis was the big play.

Bills 27, Packers 10: Rasul Douglas interception

A positive play from the Packers defense: Rasul Douglas undercut Josh Allen’s off-schedule throw attempt and made the interception near midfield. It was the first stop for the Packers in six drives on defense. But one play later, Aaron Rodgers was intercepted on a tipped pass, giving the ball right back to Allen and the Bills in the fourth quarter.

Bills 27, Packers 10: Jaire Alexander interception

The Packers prevented a blowout situation when Jaire Alexander picked off Josh Allen inside the 5-yard line with the Bills threatening to put the game away. Alexander made a tumbling catch of the low throw. The Packers still trail by three scores with 10 minutes left.

Bills 27, Packers 17: Samori Toure 37-yard TD

The Packers made something of Jaire Alexander’s interception by going 95 yards in eight plays to score the team’s second touchdown of the night. Aaron Rodgers bought time and found rookie Samori Toure for a 37-yard touchdown. It was the first touchdown of Toure’s NFL career.
