BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — The Buffalo Bills are 9-3 to start the season for the first time since 1996 after the Bills topped the Dallas Cowboys 26-15 on Thanksgiving evening.
After allowing a touchdown on the first drive of the game, the Bills started to capitalize and take control. Josh Allen found Cole Beasley in the 2nd quarter to put the Bills on the board. Beasley, playing against his former team, finished with six catches for 110 yards and a touchdown.
The Bills added another score before the half when John Brown, one of Allen's top targets this season, completed a 28-yard pass to Devin Singletary to give the Bills a 13-7 lead at the half. The Bills defense was also dominant following that first drive, recording two takeaways to keep Dallas from scoring following that first score of the night.
The Bills opened up the second half with a field goal and then added onto their lead after Allen ran for 15 yards to make it a 23-7 Bills lead with minutes left in the third quarter. Allen finished the day going 19-of-24 for 231 yards and eight rushes for 43 yards, with a total of two scores.
The Bills will face another tough test next weekend when they host the Baltimore Ravens.
