Bills vs. Lions score: Josh Allen’s late heroics lead to winning FG as Buffalo spoils Detroit’s Thanksgiving

When the Buffalo Bills needed Josh Allen to make a play, he delivered. Allen’s 36-yard throw to Stefon Diggs with 23 seconds left paved the way for Tyler Bass to hit a 45-yard field goal in the final seconds as the Buffalo Bills escaped from Ford Field with a 28-25 victory over the Detroit Lions in a Thanksgiving game for the ages.

Tied 25-25 with 23 seconds left, Allen made sure the Bills didn’t head to overtime with an upset-starving Lions team. The Bills quarterback fired a perfect strike to Diggs to get Buffalo into Bass’ range, needing just one play to set Buffalo up for the win. Allen then had two runs for a total of 12 yards to get Buffalo to the Detroit 27-yard line — setting the stage for Bass to hit the 45-yard kick for the win.

The Lions fought hard in this one, making sure the Bills earned every bit of their victory. Detroit tied the game at 25-25 with 28 seconds left as Mike Badgley hit a 51-yard field goal that curved left and went between the uprights. The Lions pinned the Bills at their own 25 before Allen had the throw of the day to Diggs — and showed the league he’s still one of the elite talents in the game.
