JACKSONVILLE, F.L. (WIVB) — The Buffalo Bills played the worst game of the season thus far and lost 9-6 to the 1-6 Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday.
This is the first time the Bills haven’t scored a touchdown in a game since last season’s 18-10 win over the New York Jets.
For the second straight week, the first half was sloppy for the Bills. Both Buffalo and Jacksonville finished the half with 132 total yards, and both finished the first two quarters with a pair of field goals to enter the break tied at 6 apiece.
The second half wasn’t much better for Buffalo, but the big issue in this game was the turnovers.
The Bills lost the turnover battle 3-1, with Bills QB Josh Allen committing all three of those turnovers with two interceptions and a lost fumble.
Even with the balls lost, Allen finished 31-47 for 264 yards and two interceptions. He also led the team in rushing with five carries for 50 yards.
The Bills move to 5-3 on the season. Buffalo travels to take on the Jets next Sunday.
