Allen and the Bills had a tough day on offense against the AFC East rival Jets. Though Allen recorded two rushing touchdowns, he was limited to 18 completions for 205 yards, zero touchdowns and two interceptions on the day. The Jets’ resilient front seven also sacked him five times in a 20-17 upset win.
It was a frustrating loss for the Bills, who are now tied with the Kansas City Chiefs for the top record in the AFC. Buffalo is also just half a game up on the 6-3 Jets and Miami Dolphins for tops in the AFC East.
