New Orleans — Josh Allen and the benevolent Buffalo Bills look back on their better version of the swelling New Orleans Saints.
Allen passed 260 yards and four touchdowns, and Bills won 31-6 on Thursday night, curbing New Orleans’ shorthand attacks and driving the injured saint into four consecutive losses.
“Coaches always talk about playoff calibers, and that’s the team we want to be,” Allen said. “We want to be our best version … every time we step into the field.”
Dawson Knox won two touchdown passes and a tight-end, one-season franchise best seven TD. His second score gave Bills (7-4) a 24-0 lead.
Stephen Diggs had seven receptions with 74 yards and a touchdown, and Matt Breida’s running back was a short pass with an overwhelming victory just four days after giving Indianapolis a 26-point home loss. Was changed to a score of 23 yards.
Defensive end Mario Addison, who had one of Buffalo’s Trevor Siemian’s two sack, said, “Shortening our way (last weekend) can be depressing.” .. “You have to flash it and start over. Everyone had a great idea to join this game and we were just ready.”
Saints (5-6) played Alvin Kamara for three consecutive games without a dynamic running back and was shut out in three-quarters. They finally scored in Siemian’s 11-yard pass to tight-end Nick Vannett in his fourth first play.
Buffalo surpassed New Orleans 361-190, and Bills owned the ball from 34:38 to 25:22 in Saints.
The game shows how Kamala and star receiver Michael Thomas haven’t played throughout the season, and how significant changes in quarterbacks have limited Saints’ attacks.
New Orleans went 5-2 in a game started by QB Jameis Winston, who took over the season for retired Drew Brees. However, Winston went out into the season with a knee injury during a recent victory in New Orleans on October 31, and the saint lost all the games Siemian started.
Saints coach Sean Payton said the urgency of maintaining a drive against a strong building came from his decision to call for running play in 4th and 2nd near the midfield and later run a fake punt. It was clear. Both failed, Run lost the yard, and Panther’s Blake Gillikin’s pass sailed beyond the height and width of the intended receiver, Lil Jordan Humphrey.
“When I went in, I felt I had to be a little more aggressive,” Peyton said, citing how aggressive Bills was. “We couldn’t win a game that would score 14 or 17 points against such a team.”
Siemian passed 17 out of 29 yards and finished 163 yards, 1 TD and 1 pass cut. Taysom Hill, out of a leg injury, was a backup quarterback for New Orleans, but didn’t play.
By the way, Breeze was playing games as a broadcasting station. The noisy reception received from the crowd when commended in the field at half-time contrasted with the collective frustrated moans as New Orleans stopped driving one after another.
Most fans had left the dome by the beginning of the fourth quarter, leaving a solid travel delegation of fans wearing buffalo blue to celebrate Thanksgiving.
As a result, Peyton foresaw a change as he was trying to find a way to end the worst streak in the season since 2015.
“We’ll see everything from now on, and obviously we have to,” Peyton said. “We have to look carefully at everything we do and with whom we do it.”
If Saints did not intercept Allen twice, the results could be even more biased. It was deep in the New Orleans Territory when defensive end Cameron Jordan threw Allen and linebacker Kwon Alexander dived to catch the fluttering ball.
It was Allen’s third game of the four where he had multiple turnovers. The previous two were losses, but this time it only prevented Bills from winning further.
Bradley Roby, a cornerback in Saints, made his first interception of New Orleans near the midfield in the first half.
Allen has lost his fumble after throwing seven passcuts in the last four games.
Bills: Former LSU star CB Toledavius White, who was the first professional to play in his home state, seems to have hurt his left knee in the second quarter. He could drag himself off the field, but he slammed his helmet near the bench and then put a towel on his head and didn’t walk back to the changing room.
Saints: LB Caden Ellis left the game with a hamstring injury. … Rookie cornerback Paulson Adevo was helped by the sideline after a fierce clash in the fourth quarter.
Bills: Hosting the New England Patriots in a Monday night showdown to take first place in the AFC East on December 6th.
Saints: Host the Dallas Cowboys next Thursday night.
