Bass Drills Walk-Off Field Goal to Lead Bills to 23-20 Win Over Baltimore: Live Game Log – Sports Illustrated

  • October 3, 2022

The Buffalo Bills enter their Week 4 matchup against the Baltimore Ravens looking to bounce back from a hard fought loss last Sunday against the Miami Dolphins. 
Getting back in the win column won't come easy, though, as the Ravens are led by MVP candidate, quarterback Lamar Jackson. Through three games this season Jackson has looked like the best player in the NFL, challenging Allen for the early lead in the MVP race. 
Jackson has thrown for 749 yards and 10 touchdowns, while adding 243 rushing yards and a pair of touchdowns on the ground. If a beat up Bills' secondary can't stop Jackson, then this could be a very, very long game for Buffalo. 
However, while Jackson might exploit a beat up Bills' secondary, it is very likely that the superstar duo of quarterback Josh Allen and Receiver Stefon Diggs will do the same. They watched divisional rival Tua Tagovailoa throw for 469 yards and six touchdowns against the Ravens and can't wait to see what they can do on offense. 
A win for the Bills against the Ravens would be a big momentum builder. Not only would they match the Miami Dolphins record of 3-1 through four games, but they'd do so by beating yet another Super Bowl contender and proving that despite last weekend, they're still the best team in the NFL and Super Bowl favorites.
