Bills win big in Minnesota, defeat Vikings 27

24 September, 2018, 04:40 | Author: Amy Huff

The Buffalo Bills had been, by far, the worst team in the National Football League through two weeks of the season.

At the end of the first quarter on third-and-9, Allen sprinted straight up the middle out of a collapsed pocket and hurdled Barr 2 yards short of the marker to get the first down. Minnesota is a really hard place to play and Allen made it look easy on a 75-yard touchdown drive to start the game.

Josh Allen is the fifth rookie quarterback since 1995 to win straight up as a two-touchdown underdog, and the first since Joe Webb led the Minnesota Vikings to a win over Michael Vick and the Philadelphia Eagles in 2010. Cousins took four sacks. But Buffalo, which was a 16.5-point underdog in the game, did the seemingly impossible, soundly dispatching Kirk Cousins and Co. Minnesota would actually hold the Bills to a field goal inside the red zone, but three more plays later the Bills would cough up the ball via another sack and forced fumble, this time from Jerry Hughes.

The Bills, including their playoff game, went the final eight games of last season without recovering a fumble.

Oil demand to top 100M bpd
During the first half of 2018, the United States also exported 913,000 b/d of gasoline, an increase of 144,000 b/d from 2017. As Florence moves closer to the southeastern coast of the USA , the storm appears likely to strengthen, forecasters said.

During halftime, the late Dennis Green was inducted into the Vikings' Ring of Honor.

At least the third-quarter interception by Cousins wasn't his fault.

The Vikings also were without defensive end Everson Griffen (knee), cornerback Marcus Sherels (rib) and tight end David Morgan (knee). Did the Vikings just completely look past the Bills to Thursday's matchup against the Rams?
