INGLEWOOD, California – Josh Allen is still setting records in his sixth NFL season but is more focused on helping the Buffalo Bills back into the playoffs.

Allen contributed two touchdowns on the ground and one on the ground on Saturday night, but it took a 29-yard field goal by Tyler Bass with 28 seconds remaining for the Bills to escape with a 24-22 victory over the Los Angeles Chargers.

Allen became the first player in NFL history to have four straight seasons with at least 40 total touchdowns and the second quarterback with 50 career rushing touchdowns.

“It’s difficult because playing a team with nothing to lose is a dangerous team.” “We gutted it out and found a way,” Allen said after completing 15 of 21 passes for 237 yards and an interception. “These are our playoffs. It didn’t matter how we did it, just that we did it.”

The Bills (9-6) have won four straight games. Buffalo’s playoff hopes were boosted earlier when Pittsburgh defeated Cincinnati.

Indianapolis and Houston are 8-6 and have a better conference record than the Bills. If either team loses, Buffalo will have one of the AFC’s final two places entering the season’s final two weeks.

Buffalo went behind 10-0 early in the second quarter but fought back to win for the fourth time since Sean McDermott took over as coach in 2017.

In their first game under interim coach Giff Smith, the Bills turned the ball over three times to keep the Chargers in the game. Brandon Staley and general manager Tom Telesco were sacked on December 15, just one day after the Chargers were defeated 63-21 in Las Vegas.

“(The Chargers) were doing some things they hadn’t done all season.” “They came prepared,” McDermott added. “I believed our men were settling in and responding. We fared well in the red zone and had some big third-down plays to help us out.”

Los Angeles (5-10), which has lost six of seven games, got five field goals from Cameron Dicker and 210 yards from Easton Stick.

“I think we went into this game thinking it was going to be a heavyweight fight, and we wanted to have a chance at the end for a knockout,” Smith said. “We were planning to play it close to the vest. Get some points on the board and give us a chance to win, and that’s exactly what happened. “I came up a little short.”

Allen completed four passes on the game-winning 13-play, 64-yard drive, including a 15-yard reception by Khalil Shakir on third-and-4 at the LA 28 with 2:29 remaining. Shakir rushed to the end zone after making the catch, and officials announced a touchdown, but a replay review determined he was down by contact.

“As an offense, we want to score a touchdown and put them in a tougher situation.” “Obviously, not scoring there allowed us to run down the clock, and they squandered their third and final timeout,” Allen explained.

Allen has the most overall touchdowns in the league with 40 (27 passing, 13 rushing). With 38 seconds left in the second quarter, his 2-yard rush off right tackle gave the Bills a 14-10 lead.

Allen made it 21-13 with a 1-yard sneak late in the third quarter, his 51st career rushing touchdown. Allen benefited from a late surge by Latavius Murray.

Gabe Davis, who had not caught a ball in the previous two games after catching six for 105 yards against Philadelphia, had four receptions for 130 yards, including a 57-yard touchdown early in the second quarter to get the Bills within 10-7.

Allen darted to the right and found Davis wide downfield. Davis caught the ball at the Chargers’ 19-yard line and beat linebacker Kenneth Murray to the end zone. Allen had his second-longest completion of the season.

Stick was 23 of 33 passing and rushed for a touchdown in his second NFL start in place of the injured Justin Herbert.

Thanks to the fifth-year quarterback, the Chargers scored on two of their opening three drives. Early in the second quarter, he rolled right and scored from one yard out, giving Los Angeles a 10-0 lead.

Stick took advantage of a short field after Amen Ogbongbemiga recovered Deonte Harty’s mishandled punt for the Bills.

“We were able to get the ball into the end zone and take the lead, which is how you want to play the game.” “All we have to do is consistently execute better so that we can feel better at the end,” Stick explained.

James Cook ended with 70 yards on 20 carries to become the Bills’ first 1,000-yard rushing back since LeSean McCoy in 2017.

LB for the Bills, Terrel Bernard, sat out the first quarter with a non-contact foot injury. S Damar Hamlin (shoulder) left the game early but was cleared to return. Ty Johnson (shoulder), Micah Hyde (neck), and A.J. Epensesa (ribs) were all ruled out.

WR for the Chargers: Due to heel problems, Keenan Allen missed his second straight game, and DB Deane Leonard missed his fourth in a row.

Dallas Stars Eliminate Avalanche 2-1 With OT Win

The Avalanche’s aspirations of returning to the Stanley Cup were dashed late Friday night when they lost 2-1 in double overtime against the Dallas Stars.

Former Avalanche player Matt Duchene scored the game-winning goal, allowing the Dallas Stars to advance to the Western Conference final.

Duchene, who began his professional career in Denver, grabbed a loose puck in front of the net and blasted it over a sprawled-out Alexandar Georgiev. Duchene raced down the ice and sank to his knees in celebration.

Dallas Stars will play either Edmonton Oilers or the Vancouver Cunucks next. The Dallas Stars are making their second straight trip to the conference finals, having fallen to eventual Stanley Cup champion Vegas last season. The Stars won their sole Stanley Cup championship in 1999.

This was a series in which the road team won five of six games, with the Stars winning all three in Denver. The Avalanche were the best home team throughout the regular season, while the Stars had the best away record.

After winning the Stanley Cup two years earlier, the Avalanche finished the season 50-25-7.

NFL Distances Itself From Chiefs Kicker Harrison Butker’s Comments During Commencement Speech

NFL

NEW YORK — The NFL has distanced itself from Kansas City Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker, stating that “his views are not those of the NFL as an organization.”

Butker spoke at the commencement ceremony at Benedictine College, a private Catholic liberal arts institution in Kansas, last week and claimed most of the graduating ladies were likely more enthused about getting married and having children.

Butker also said that some Catholic officials were “pushing dangerous gender ideologies onto the youth of America.”

“Harrison Butker gave a speech in his personal capacity,” said Jonathan Beane, NFL senior vice president and chief diversity and inclusion officer, in a statement issued on Thursday. “His opinions do not represent the NFL as an organization. The NFL remains unwavering in its commitment to inclusion, which only strengthens our league.”

The three-time Super Bowl champion gave his about 20-minute speech Saturday at the school in Atchison, Kansas, about 60 miles (97 kilometers) north of Kansas City. He earned a standing ovation from graduates and other attendees.

Butker, who has made his conservative Catholic convictions known, also criticized Pride Month, which is especially crucial for the LGBTQ+ rights movement, as well as President Joe Biden’s abortion stance.

“I think it is you, the women, who have had the most diabolical lies told to you,” Butker concluded.

NFL Distances Itself From Chiefs Kicker Harrison Butker’s Comments During Commencement Speech

“Some of you may go on to have excellent jobs in the world, but I believe the bulk of you are most excited about your marriage and the children you will bring into the world. I can guarantee you that my lovely wife Isabelle would be the first to state that her life truly began when she began to live her vocation as a wife and mother,” he said.

Butker, 28, claimed his wife accepted “one of the most important titles of all.” Homemaker.”

Butker also chastised The Associated Press for emphasizing a move toward conservativism in some sectors of the church.

Butker also made an oblique allusion to Pride Month, referring to a “deadly sin sort of pride that has a month dedicated to it.” Butker also criticized Biden’s views, such as his rejection of the Supreme Court’s reversal of the 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling and support for abortion rights, which are significant campaign topics in the 2024 presidential race.

The 2017 seventh-round pick from Georgia Tech has emerged as one of the NFL’s greatest kickers, breaking the Chiefs franchise record with a 62-yard field goal in 2022. Butker helped them win their first Super Bowl in 50 years in 2020, added a second Lombardi Trophy in 2023, and kicked the game-winning field goal in overtime against San Francisco in February.
