Teammates react after Buffalo Bills kicker Tyler Bass hits a 45-yard game winning field goal

Tyler Bass made a tiebreaking, 45-yard field goal with two seconds left, lifting the Buffalo Bills to a 28-25 win over the Detroit Lions on Thursday for their second victory in five days at Ford Field.

Josh Allen set up the game-winning kick by starting the drive with a 36-yard pass to Stefon Diggs and running twice for 12 yards before Bass’s winning kick.

Buffalo (8-3) have won two straight to move a half-game ahead of Miami in the AFC East.

The Bills were back in Detroit after the NFL shifted their previous home game against Cleveland to Ford Field because of a winter storm in western New York. They had to work harder for the win on Thursday than they did against the Browns.

Allen threw a go-ahead, five-yard touchdown pass to Diggs with 2:40 left to make it 25-22, but Bass missed the extra point. The Lions then converted on fourth-and-one from midfield with Amon-Ra St Brown’s end-around to set up Michael Badgley‘s game-tying, 51-yard field goal with 23 seconds to go. Badgley had missed a 29-yard field goal late in the third and Jared Goff took a sack for a safety in the same quarter, and those mistakes proved to be costly.

Allen had a passing and rushing touchdown in the first half, finishing 24 of 42 for 253 yards to more than make up for throwing his 11th interception of the season.

Detroit (4-7) missed an opportunity to win four straight games for the first time since 2016 and lost a franchise-record sixth straight game on Thanksgiving.

Goff was 23 of 37 for 240 yards with one-yard touchdown pass to St Brown that made it 14-14 late in the first half, and a one-yard touchdown to DJ Chark that pulled the Lions within three points early in third quarter at 22-19.
