Packers find offense too late in Buffalo

The Green Bay Packers had more first downs and yards than their hosts, but it was the Buffalo Bills that came away with the 27-17 victory in Orchard Park, New York Sunday night.

 

Both teams were effective in the running game, with Aaron Jones rushing for 143 of the Packers' 208 yards, compared to 153 for the Bills.

 

The Bills struck first when Josh Allen flipped one pass for a touchdown on a scramble to make it 7-0 and found Stefon Diggs for the second touchdown to make it 14-0. Allen was held mainly in check after that, throwing for two interceptions and held under 150 yards passing the rest of the game. The Packers would finally get on the board midway through the second quarter when Romeo Doubs made a twisting catch to make it 14-7. The Bills would quickly answer with a rushing touchdown and a field goal to make it 24-7 at the break.

 

The Packers and the Bills would trade field goals in the third quarter before Rodgers found Samori Toure for a late touchdown.

 

The Packers dropped their fourth straight game ahead of their matchup next Sunday against the Detroit Lions at Ford Field.
