Ravens’ fourth down gamble fails as Bills wins last game | NFL

Tyler Bass hit a 21-yard field goal on the final play of the game, and Josh Allen rallied the Buffalo Bills from a 17-point deficit to beat the Baltimore Ravens 23-20 on Sunday.

With a 20-tie in the final quarter, the Ravens (2-2) were second behind from the Buffalo one-yard line. Two straight runs missed the end zone, and Baltimore decided to give fourth of the two a try.

Lamar Jackson had to scramble a bit, then threw a pass into the end zone that was intercepted by Jordan Poyer for a touchback with 4:09 left – a disastrous result for the Ravens because it meant the Bills (3-1 ) it wasn’t nailed down, as if following an incompleteness.

From there, Allen calmly led Buffalo into field goal range, capping his team’s comeback from a 20-3 deficit late in the second quarter. It was the second home game in a row in which Baltimore gambled away a significant lead. Miami rebounded from a 21-point deficit in the fourth quarter to beat the Ravens 42-38 two weekends ago.

Allen threw for 213 yards with a touchdown and an interception, and Jackson passed 144 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions. The star quarterbacks’ matchup didn’t quite live up to its potential on a rainy day near the Chesapeake Bay. Jackson and Allen did their usual damage with their legs, but largely limited themselves to short finishes.

Jacksonville Jaguars 21-29 Philadelphia Eagles

Miles Sanders rushed for 134 yards and two touchdowns, Jalen Hurts threw for 204 yards and ran for a goal, and the Eagles spoiled former coach Doug Pederson’s return to Philadelphia with a 29-21 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Sanders led an Eagles offense (4-0) that ran for 210 yards against one of the league’s tightest defenses. Trevor Lawrence threw for 174 yards and two touchdowns to Jamal Agnew. Lawrence was exposed on the final drive of the game that sealed victory for the Eagles. It was one of four lost fumbles for the sophomore quarterback.

Arizona Cardinals 26-16 Carolina Panthers

Kyler Murray threw for 207 yards and two touchdowns and added a rushing, and the Arizona Cardinals overcame another lackluster first half to defeat the Carolina Panthers.

The Cardinals’ defense frustrated Baker Mayfield and forced three turnovers through the 2018 No. 1 overall — prompting boos from the home crowd in the fourth quarter. Mayfield again fought for the Panthers (1-3).

Seattle Seahawks 48-45 Detroit Lions

Geno Smith threw for two touchdowns and ran for a goal in the first half, and the Seattle Seahawks held off the Detroit Lions.

The Seahawks (2-2) were stopped a third down late in the third quarter, but Ford Field’s game clock was not properly timed. Seattle capitalized on the second chance and Detroit’s disorganized defense on Rashaad Penny’s 36-yard touchdown run on a third and 16, opening a 38-23 lead.

TJ Hockenson had eight receptions and set career highs with 179 receiving yards and two touchdowns, the second of which helped the Lions (1-3) go to three in 5:26. Smith ripped Detroit apart on the ensuing drive that ended in third and fifth with Penny’s 41-yard touchdown rush. Penny ended up rushing for 151 yards on 17 carries. Jared Goff’s fourth touchdown pass went to Justin Jackson with 1:06 left, again reducing the deficit to three. The Lions’ comeback hopes ended when Seattle regained the onside kick and Penny’s run converted a third and a fifth in their territory.

Denver Broncos 23-32 Las Vegas Raiders

Josh Jacobs rushed for 144 yards and two touchdowns, Amik Robertson returned a fumbling 68 yards for a goal, and the Las Vegas Raiders won their first game of the season.

After opening their first season by one goal under coach Josh McDaniels with three straight losing games, the Raiders (1-3) managed to do enough on defense with their biggest rushing game in six years and to end Russell Wilson and the Broncos (2-2).

Los Angeles Chargers 34-24 Houston Texans

Justin Herbert threw for 340 yards and two touchdowns and Austin Ekeler scored three goals as the Los Angeles Chargers built an early lead and held onto the win over the Houston Texans.

Houston scored 17 straight points to come within three minutes with about eight minutes remaining. The Chargers (2-2) then assembled a 12-play 84-yard drive that was topped by Ekeler’s 14-yard reception to put the game away and make a two-game sled.

Washington Commanders 10-25 Dallas Cowboys

Cooper Rush won again by substituting for Dak Prescott and throwing a touchdown pass to Michael Gallup on the receiver’s debut in 2022 as the Dallas Cowboys defeated the Washington Commanders. Rush also had a TD toss on CeeDee Lamb while improving to 4-0.

Tennessee Titans 24-17 Indianapolis Colts

Derrick Henry rushed for a season-high 114 yards and a touchdown, and the Tennessee defense held up late Sunday to preserve the Titans’ win.

Tennessee (2-2) has a franchise-record four straight seasons in the series and has improved to 11-2 against AFC South opponents since 2020. Indy (1-2-1) has had a win in his last six games and botched three late-scoring chances that could have reduced the deficit to less than seven.

Chicago Bears 12-20 New York Giants

Daniel Jones ran for two touchdowns before injuring an ankle, Saquon Barkley had 146 rushing yards and intermittently ran the Wildcat offense after both New York quarterbacks were injured as they led the Giants to a 20-12 win on Sunday over the Chicago Bears.

Jones notched in rushes for 21 and eight yards, New York rushed for 262 yards and Graham Gano had field goals for 44 and 43 yards as the Giants improved to 3-1 under rookie coach Brian Daboll. It’s their best start since 2011 when they won the Super Bowl.

Jones and backup Tyrod Taylor were injured for about 10 minutes in the second half. Jones (8 of 13 for 71 yards and 68 yards rushing) injured his ankle while being released by Jaquan Brisker late in the third quarter. Taylor went into concussion minutes after attempting a first down with 8:35 to go.

Jones ended the series that Gano ended with a 44 yarder for a 17-12 lead, and Barkley ran the direct offense that Gano ended with his 43 yarder with 5:34 left. Jones has been on the field and lined up as a receiver for those games, and he’s snapped some of the last series for handovers.

New York Jets 24-20 Pittsburgh Steelers

Breece Hall ran for a two-yard touchdown with 16 seconds left and Zach Wilson and the New York Jets spoiled Kenny Pickett’s Pittsburgh debut by rallying for a 24-20 win over the Steelers.

The Jets (2-2) won in Pittsburgh for the second time in franchise history after Wilson – in his season debut – led them onto the field late after the second of Pickett’s three interceptions gave New York the ball back with a 3:42 go .

Wilson carried the Jets 65 yards in 10 games, the last two coming as Hall worked his way over the goal line. The game was initially classified as a fumble, but was overturned upon review.

Cleveland Browns 20-23 Atlanta Falcons

Dee Alford intercepted Jacoby Brissett’s pass with less than a minute left and the Atlanta Falcons held on to beat the Cleveland Browns.

The Falcons (2-2) spoiled the homecoming of Cleveland’s Nick Chubb, who rushed for 118 yards and a touchdown while his high school team looked on.

Younghoe Koo’s 45-yard field goal, his third of the game, put the Falcons 2:28 ahead. The Browns (2-2) went past the 50, but in third and 23rd place Alford took off Brissett’s pass intended for David Bell.
