NFL: A precision kick from Tyler Bass gives the Bills victory, 28 to 25 against the Lions

A perfect execution of the Bills offense at the very end of the 4th quarter allowed Buffalo to win on the edge28-25 over the Detroit Lions on Thursday in the first of three NFL Thanksgiving games.

When we seemed destined to go into overtime, Josh Allen took advantage of a last series on offense and 23 seconds on the clock to set the table for a victorious field goal from Tyler Bass on 45 yards.

Allen joined Stefon Diggs for 37 yards on the first of four plays the Bills fielded to regain the lead with seven seconds left.

Buffalo (8-3) thus signed a second victory in a row since their heartbreaking loss at the hands of the Minnesota Vikings in the 10th week.

Sean McDermott’s squad temporarily top the American East Division, pending the outcome of the Miami Dolphins game, who face Houton at home on Sunday.

A 51-yard precision kick from Michael Badgley had allowed the Lions (4-7) to believe that they had just forced an extension.

Methodical, Detroit’s offense was able to tie the game 25-25 following a 10-game streak, including a 4th down and a conversion thanks to a run from St. Brown.

Miller leaves the game in a cart

The Bills’ victory didn’t come without a hitch, as star linebacker Von Miller injured his right knee in the 2nd quarter.

Miller saw Lions center Frank Ragnow accidentally pound on his right leg while blocking an opposing player.

Miller’s condition was assessed on the sidelines and he was then transported to the locker room in a golf cart. He did not return to the game.

The 33-year-old Miller started the game tied for 10th in the NFL with eight sacks.
