Tampa Bay Buccaneers secure win
Tampa Bay Buccaneers Tom Brady continues to make history even when he’s not necessarily trying. The Buffalo Bills were defeated by the Buccaneers this past weekend in overtime, 33-27. The Bills are currently on a two-game losing streak. They’re slowly falling out of contention for the wild card spot in the playoffs. As the AFC conference begins to make the race tighter and tighter the Bills tend to move in the opposite direction. It also doesn’t help the Bills quarterback Josh Allen has suffered a foot injury and it may be more serious than many thought.
The 44-year-old-quarterback beat his longtime AFC East rivals for the tenth straight time this Sunday. He also became the NFL’s all-time completions leader and threw his 700th touchdown pass for the game-winning touchdown in overtime. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are headed in the right direction and on the brink of winning their first conference title in 14 years, per ESPN.

Brady threw for 363 yards and two touchdowns with no interceptions. He added a rushing touchdown down by the goal-line with a quarterback sneak. He completed his 7,143rd pass in his 22-year career.
“It was pretty cool. I’d rather it not come down to that, but in the end, they all count the same,” Brady said. “We’ve got to learn from it and move on. Next week we’re playing for a division championship and that’s pretty exciting.”

The Buffalo Bills can’t hang onto the potential comeback
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers initially went up at halftime leading by 21 points. The reigning Super Bowl champs clearly lost their edge within the second half and allowed the Buffalo Bills to gain momentum.
Allen shrugged off the slow start and ultimately finished the game with 308 yards and two touchdowns. He ran for 109 yards and a touchdown as well. Allen is the fourth player in league history to throw over 300 and also rushed for 100 plus yards in the same game.
Not only did the game without a Cinderella ending, but Allen left the game with a severe injury that can affect their playoff push down the final stretch of the regular season. Allen expressed his thoughts on the matter after the game.
“Finished the game. I don’t think it’s going to be a big deal,” Allen said. “It’s pretty sore. It’s football.”
Since starting 4-1, the Bills have been a shell of themselves. They don’t resemble that early Bills team in any way shape or form. They’re 3-5 over their last eight games.
