Lions grab 22-19 lead on DJ Chark TD catch

Mike Florio and Chris Simms explore why the Lions must beat the Bills in order to keep their playoff hopes alive, while Buffalo focuses on continuing to reestablish itself on Thanksgiving.

The Lions’ bid for a fourth straight win is very much alive early in the fourth quarter.

After a 41-yard punt return by Kalif Raymond set the Lions up on the Bills’ 35-yard-line, the offense needed just five plays to get into the end zone. Jared Goff hit wide receiver DJ Chark for a one-yard score and the Lions are up 22-19 after a D’Andre Swift two-point conversion.

The game looked like it might start going Buffalo’s way when Ed Oliver sacked Goff in the end zone for a safety in the third quarter, but the Lions forced a pair of punts on the next two Bills possessions. They moved the ball well on their drive before the touchdown as well, but Michael Badgley missed a 29-yard field goal.

Goff is now 18-of-27 for 178 yards and two touchdowns while Josh Allen is 14-of-28 for 163 yards, a touchdown, and an interception for the Bills.
