The Buffalo Bills couldn’t overcome four Josh Allen turnovers as they dropped their season opener to the New York Jets, 22-16, in overtime on Monday Night Football despite Aaron Rodgers leaving the game early in the first quarter with an Achilles injury.
Tyler Bass sent the game to overtime with a 50-yard field goal, but Buffalo gave up a walk-off punt return to Xavier Gibson after going three and out to start the extra period.
Allen completed 29-of-41 passes for 236 yards with one touchdown and a career-high four turnovers, three of which were interceptions.
Stefon Diggs caught ten passes for 102 yards and hauled in Buffalo’s only touchdown late in the second quarter.
