Buffalo’s defensive front played its best game of the season in Week 6, taking Houston quarterback Deshaun Watson down six times. Unfortunately, a late pick-six cost the team a victory, as the Bills lost the game by a score of 20-13.
Josh Allen played well in the game, completing 10 of 17 passes for 84 yards. The rookie injured his throwing arm in the third quarter. Sophomore Nathan Peterman entered the game in relief of Allen, completing six passes and even finding Zay Jones in the end zone. Peterman also threw two interceptions.
Buffalo’s defense played well enough to win the game, keeping Houston to 216 net yards. The unit picked Watson off twice and forced three fumbles. Kyle Williams was a menace on Sunday, totaling two sacks and one forced fumble.
With the loss, the Bills fall to 2-4 on the season.

Phillip Gaines smacks the wall. Josh Allen’s elbow heavily wrapped. Jerry Hughes pissed.
