NFL roundup: Josh Allen (2 TDs) leads Bills past Packers

NFL: Green Bay Packers at Buffalo Bills

Buffalo starting quarterback Josh Allen passed for 194 and two touchdowns in his preseason debut to lead the Bills to a 19-0 victory over the visiting Green Bay Packers.

The Bills finished the preseason 3-0.

Allen finished 20-for-26 passing in three series before giving way to Jake Fromm and Davis Webb in the second half.

Gabriel Davis, off the reserve/COVID-19 list, caught five passes for 75 yards and a touchdown. Cole Beasley, also just off the COVID list, caught four passes for 52 yards.

Packers quarterback Jordan Love returned from a shoulder injury to finish 12 of 18 for 149 yards and an interception. The Packers finished the preseason 0-3, resting most of their starters.

Ravens 37, Washington Football Team 3

Tyler Huntley threw for four touchdowns to lead Baltimore to an NFL-record 20th straight preseason victory. However, the Ravens lost starting running back J.K. Dobbins to a knee injury in the first quarter. Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson made his preseason debut but didn’t play much, finishing with 29 yards passing on 3-for-4 passing. Huntley played the rest of the way, completing 24 of 33 passes for 285 yards. Kyle Allen completed 10-of-22 passes for 100 yards for host Washington, which finished its preseason 1-2.

Bears 27, Titans 24

Jesper Horsted caught three touchdown passes and Nick Foles threw for 142 yards and two touchdowns to lead Chicago past host Tennessee in Nashville. Foles connected with Horsted on a 54-yard TD throw at 6:51 of the fourth quarter for the game-winning score. Horsted finished with 104 yards receiving. Logan Woodside completed 12-of-17 passes for 100 yards and a touchdown for the Titans. Woodside and Matt Barkley threw an interception apiece. The Titans rushed for 181 yards and two touchdowns as a team.

Buccaneers 23, Texans 16

Tom Brady engineered a pair of 90-plus yard touchdown drives in his final preseason action in helping visiting Tampa Bay past Houston. Brady was an efficient 11 of 14 passing in his three possessions for 154 yards and a 24-yard scoring strike to Chris Godwin. With Texans starting quarterback Deshaun Watson still on the sidelines, Tyrod Taylor (6-for-9, 31 yards) and rookie Davis Mills (10-for-27, 106 yards, two TDs and three interceptions) were underwhelming as the Buccaneers built a 16-2 halftime lead. Houston outrushed Tampa Bay 209-52.

Broncos 17, Rams 12

Teddy Bridgewater started but it was Drew Lock who threw the game-winning pass in Denver’s win over Los Angeles. Bridgewater, named the starter for Week 1, completed 6-of-11 passes for 62 yards and a touchdown in his final tune-up. Lock threw for 67 yards, including a seven-yard scoring strike to Austin Fort with 4:43 remaining. Bryce Perkins went the whole way for the Rams, completing 23 of 42 passes for 201 yards. Matt Gay kicked four field goals for the Rams, including a 54-yarder.

Seahawks 27, Chargers 0

Seattle got a touchdown from its defense and efficient play from the backup quarterbacks in a win over Los Angeles. Marquise Blair returned a fumble 17 yards for the first score of the game early in the first quarter. Quarterbacks Geno Smith and Sean Mannion combined to go 24-for-30 with Mannion throwing a TD for the final score. Running back Alex Collins added 37 yards rushing and a score. Rookie RB Larry Rountree III rushed six times for 27 yards for the Chargers. The Seahawks’ defense racked up five sacks.
