Allen, Bills overcome 16-point deficit, stun Jets 17-16

The Jets were leading this game 16-0 with just under four minutes left to play in the third quarter before the Bills mounted a huge comeback with 17 straight points over the final 19 minutes of the game. Fortunately Will Brinson, John Breech, Ryan Wilson and Sean Wagner-McGough are here to break everything down on the latest episode of the Pick Six Podcast. The Bills defense looks quite strong but their offense is still working out the kinks.

But before we could advance to next week, we must first recap the monstrosity that was yesterday's game. Allen's job, along with the Bills' offense as a whole, is to make smart decisions with the ball and give this defense a lead it can work with.

Allen's first turnover came when he lost a fumble on the Bills' opening possession of the game. Gase went 23-25 during three seasons in Miami and missed the playoffs in the last two after guiding the Dolphins to a wild-card berth in 2016.

"We knew we were going to have a shot in the second half", Allen added. While not every turnover was Allen's fault, there were also a few errant passes that should've been intercepted by the Jets but weren't. The Jets offense scored zero points off of three turnovers.

Buffalo trailed 16-0 in the second half and entered the fourth quarter behind 16-3, but thanks to a lights-out defensive performance down the stretch and some big-time throws from Allen, the Bills came away with a pivotal Week 1 victory.

Darnold was a big part of the problem for the Jets.

The defense as a whole sputtered when it mattered most, in the fourth quarter - particularly when Mosley left the game.

It also marked the first time in Allen's career that he threw for over 250 yards passing. 15 more games to go.

Despite Gase's reputation as a creative mastermind, the Jets offense struggled to gain a rhythm with an offensive line lacking cohesion and unable to knock the Bills off the line of scrimmage. As for the ground game, they compiled just 68 yards on 21 carries.

Darnold completed 28 of 41 passes (68.3 percent) for 175 yards (6.25 average) and a nine-yard touchdown to running back Le'Veon Bell. "The offensive line, having not played in the preseason together, and still working out some of the kinks and everything, you kinda expect some hiccups here and there".
