Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen fumbled the football in the second quarter of the Thanksgiving day match against the Detroit Lions and ran into the endzone for an easy touchdown. The game is played at Ford Field.
As the offensive line attempted to give the ball to Allen, the 26-year-old lost the grip on it which fell to the ground. But he took hold of it instantaneously and watched as his O-line created space for him. It was then an easy run for him into the end-zone.
Wide receiver Isiah Mckenzie has also been productive in the game, catching for a TD pass and has four receptions for 63 yards at half-time.
This was the Bills' quarterback's fifth rushing touchdown of the season. He has also recorded 21 passing touchdowns to go with 10 interceptions for the year, completing 238 out of 368 passes. A leading candidate for the NFL MVP award, the player has been dealing with an elbow injury over the last couple of weeks but has still played for his team in all the games.
The Bills have been relatively dominant in the running game from the get-go. They lead the game with 77 rushing yards to the Lions' 38 after the first 30 minutes. They are currently second in their AFC East division, trailing only the Miami Dolphins who have won the same number of games, seven, but lost their match against the Dolphins and are behind them.
The team has also lost a game to the New York Jets who have surprised a lot of the fans across the whole league with their own resurgent season.
Fans on Twitter had a variety of reactions to the play.
