Bills beat Colts 27-24 for 1st playoff win in 25 years
In a season in which the Bills busted numerous slumps, Allen became Buffalo's first starter in a quarter century to win a playoff game. Made enough plays to win,” Allen said. The Colts responded with a seven-play, 75-play drive capped by a 9-yard touchdown pass to Pascal. Rivers’ pass for Michael Pittman glanced off the diving receiver’s fingertips on fourth down. Facing fourth-and-3 from the Colts 26, Allen drew defensive end Kemoko Turay offside with a second left on the play clock.

In all, teams have gone for it on fourth down 188 times this season with 108 conversions, the most through five weeks since at least 1991. Tampa Bay became the second team to go for it from inside its own 20 in the first half of a game. DAK’S DONE: Dak Prescott’s prolific season got cut short by 11 games when he went down with a season-ending injury for Dallas. Overall, the 2,621 yards rushing and 36 TDs from quarterbacks are the most in NFL history through five weeks.
