The Buffalo Bills opened up the second half with great field position after returning the kick all the way to the Denver Broncos 43 yard line. Josh Allen quickly found Cole Beasley down to the 21 yard line after having great protection on the play.
Allen had all day to throw again, but De’Vante Bausby jumped the route at the end zone and almost came away with the interception. Beasley got involved on the next play for a 10 yard pick up and a first down just outside the ten yard line.
A holding penalty put the Bills back to the 21 yard line for a first and 20. A quick pass underneath to Beasley down to the 14 set up a quick pass to Stefon Diggs for a five yard gain. On third and seven from the eight yard line, Allen felt the blitz and found Gabriel Allen down to the two yard line just shy of the first down.
Well it was shy of the first down, but the refs made a terrible spot to give them the first and goal from the one yard line where Josh Allen would rush it in to put the Bills back up by two scores.
Bills 28, Broncos 13.
On the first play of the Broncos next possession, Lock was stripped from behind where the Bills scooped and scored to turn the game into a route.

After a quick three and out, the Broncos gave it right back to Josh Allen and Bills. They needed little time to make it even worse for the Broncos as Allen hit Diggs deep on their first play for 54 yards.
The Denver defense would come up big on that drive, however, stuffing the Bills on a fourth down attempt inside the five yard line to keep the score from getting even more out of hand.
Lock and the Broncos offense quick found themselves into a third and 12 at their own two yard line. Lock, from the shotgun, decided to tuck it and run for three yards to bring out the punt team.
Josh Allen continued to shred the Broncos secondary and before the third quarter was out would extend the Bills lead again to 38-13 after having several touchdowns called back by offensive penalties in the red zone.
