COMEBACK: Josh Allen leads Bills second half comeback to top Jets (full coverage)

The Buffalo Bills were resilient on Sunday. The Bills came back from a 16-point deficit and scored 17 unanswered points to upset the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium 17-16.

The Bills struggled early on. Josh Allen had four turnovers in the first half, Frank Gore was tackled for a safety and the Jets had a pick-six.

Allen and the Bills came alive in the second half. Buffalo leaned on rookie Devon Singletary and he showed every bit of why he was drafted in the third round. Singletary produced 70 rushing yards on four carries and added 28 yards receiving.

Allen threw for 254 yards mainly attacking short and intermediate routes, still his longest pass of the day was his most important. Allen found John Brown for 38 yards and the score to give Buffalo the lead with 2:55 left. Hauschka was money and gave Buffalo the lead and the eventual win.
