BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — The Philadelphia Eagles opened the second half with the longest rushing touchdown the Bills had given up all year. Miles Sanders went right up the gut and took it 65 yards to the house.

After that, the Bills were never able to take back the lead. The Eagles leave Orchard Park with a 31-13 win to hand Buffalo its second loss of the season.

The elements at New Era Field played a factor in all facets of the game. Kickoffs were squibbed, extra points were missed, and deep balls sailed.

Quarterback Josh Allen was under pressure all game long; he was sacked four times. He threw 16 of 33 for 169 yards and two touchdowns. He also added eight carries, many of which were a result of broken down protections.

The Bills are at home once again next week to face another opponent from the NFC East: The Washington Redskins. Kickoff next Sunday is at 1:00 p.m.
