Broncos beat Bills 24-22 on last-play field goal

Russell Wilson’s performance on Monday Night Football brought back visions of the old Russell Wilson, captivating fans with a thrilling 10-play, 57-yard drive in the final 1:55 to secure a 24-22 win for the Denver Broncos over the Buffalo Bills. The game-ending 36-yard field goal by Wil Lutz marked the sixth game in Week 10 to culminate with a final play field goal, adding an element of excitement and unpredictability to the matchup.

This victory marked the Broncos’ third consecutive win, propelling them to a 4-5 record, while the Bills suffered their second consecutive loss, falling to 5-5 and facing serious trouble in their season.

The Bills managed to take their first lead of the game, 22-21, with Josh Allen’s 6-yard touchdown run and a successful PAT by Tyler Bass, setting the stage for a tense conclusion to the game.

As Denver made their final drive, Bills defensive end A.J. Epenesa’s 6-yard sack of Wilson back to the Buffalo 45 with 35 seconds remaining added to the drama. A subsequent all-out blitz by the Bills led to an interference call on cornerback Taron Johnson, granting the Broncos a 28-yard penalty and moving the ball to the Buffalo 17.

With Lutz’s previous field goal attempt wide right, the Bills’ premature celebration as they had 12 players on the field gave Lutz another chance, leading to a successful kick and sealing the Broncos’ victory.

The Bills’ four turnovers, including three by Allen, contributed to their downfall, with the Broncos taking advantage to secure the win. Wilson’s exceptional performance, completing 24 of 29 passes for 193 yards and two touchdowns, solidified the Broncos’ victory. Courtland Sutton’s contribution with eight receptions for 53 yards and a touchdown, along with Javonte Williams’ impressive 79 rushing yards and a touchdown, further bolstered the Broncos’ performance.

On the other side, Allen went 15-of-26 for 177 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions, while James Cook’s 109 rushing yards were overshadowed by a crucial fumble on the first play from scrimmage. Gabe Davis’ two receptions for 56 yards were not enough to lift the Bills to victory.
