Josh Allen threw for three touchdowns in the Buffalo Bills’ first win over the Los Angeles Rams

Josh Allen threw three touchdown passes and Matthew Stafford three interceptions as the Buffalo Bills failed to convince the 31-10 winners against the defending Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams on the night of 2022 NFL season opener.

Game history

Allen actually accounted for all four of Buffalo’s touchdowns on the night, running one himself in the fourth quarter, while the star quarterback racked up 297 yards through the air to go along with his three passing touchdowns.

However, Allen also threw two interceptions in the first half – to go along with a fumble from rookie running back James Cook – to keep Los Angeles in the competition after the Bills took a 10-0 lead.

But, with the game tied at 10-10 at halftime, Allen and the visitors quickly found their rhythm in the second half, scoring a touchdown on each of their first three possessions before Zack Moss coughed up another late fumble. .

On a night in which both explosive offenses showed signs of rust early in the season, the Rams simply crumbled in the second half as Buffalo in turn finally found a rhythm.

Stafford, who found 2021 Offensive Player of the Year Cooper Kupp for a four-yard touchdown in the second quarter – continuing their near-telepathic connection – was knocked out twice after halftime as the Rams offense was ruled out, ending a streak of 89 consecutive halves with a point dating back to November 2019.

The Bills defense also sacked the Stafford a total of seven times on the night, the most allowed in head coach Sean McVay’s five-year tenure with the team, with former Rams defenseman Von Miller getting two .

Bills receivers Stefon Diggs, Gabe Davis and Isaiah McKenzie split touchdowns between them, with Diggs passing for 100 yards on eight receptions in the contest.

What they said…”A very humiliating night”

Rams head coach Sean McVay: “A very humbling night, but where you look in the mirror and say you have to be better.

“We weren’t ready to go. It’s up to me. There were a lot of decisions I made that didn’t put us in the best position to succeed.”

Former Rams linebacker turned Bills defenseman Von Miller: “We’re going to get on the plane and do some backflips on the way home tonight.

“We’re going to celebrate this victory, because you have to, but then we were going to go back to the lab. We weren’t going to let this success let our guard down.”
