Running back James Cook scored a five-yard touchdown from Josh Allen, and the Bills scored field goals on their first three possessions to lead 16-0. The Jets, however, were able to score their first points of the day before halftime on a touchdown pass from Zach Wilson to Breece Hall. Despite missing a two-point conversion, the Jets rallied and narrowed the Bills’ lead to 16-6.
The Jet’s score was set up by an 18-yard fake punt from punter Thomas Morstead, which was followed by a roughing the passer penalty and two other Hall catches for 26 yards. Bills safety Taylor Rapp was injured at the end of Hall’s touchdown and had to be taken off the field in an ambulance. However, Rapp was able to move on his own as he was being taken away. The touchdown led to the only extended drive of the half for the Jets, who had just 28 yards and three first downs before that possession – showing that the Bills have had better success on that side of the ball.
