ORCHARD PARK – With a sub-par offensive performance on Sunday, the Buffalo Bills fell to 9-4 on the season, stumbling at home against the Baltimore Ravens, 24-17. 

Josh Allen completed less than half of his passes in the game, going 17 out of 39 for only 146 yards and a touchdown.

Though Allen didn’t throw an interception, he fumbled twice, losing one of them to Baltimore’s defense.



Devin Singletary led the Bills rushing attack with a game-high 89 yards on 17 carries.

Cole Beasley caught four passes for 29 yards and a touchdown.

On the defensive side, Jordan Poyer finished with a game-high 10 total tackles.



Tremaine Edmunds added eight tackles and an interception.

Extending the Ravens win streak to nine games, Lamar Jackson tossed for 145 yards and three touchdowns.

Running the ball, Jackson became just the second QB in NFL History to rush for 1,000 yards in a season along with Michael Vick back in 2008, rushing for only 40 yards on 11 carries.

Hayden Hurst caught three of Jackson’s passes for 73 yards, including a 61-yard touchdown reception.

On the opposing end of the ball, the Ravens defense sacked Allen six times.

Earl Thomas finished with seven tackles and a sack.

Now at 11-2, Baltimore will return to action on Dec. 12 at 8:20 for a Thursday Night home game against the New York Jets on FOX.

Meanwhile, now at 9-4, Buffalo will be on the road on Dec. 15 at 8:20 for their first Sunday Night game since 2008, as they will battle the Pittsburgh Steelers on NBC.

Buffalo and Pittsburgh currently hold two of the four Wild Card spots in the AFC.
