Lutz nails 36-yard field goal in Broncos' 24-22 win over Bills - Sentinel Colorado

Denver Broncos won third straight by rallying for a 24-22 victory over the sloppy, turnover-prone Buffalo Bills on Monday night.

The Denver Broncos secured a 24-22 victory over the Buffalo Bills on Monday night, thanks to a 36-yard field goal from Wil Lutz as time expired. Lutz had a second chance to make the game-winning kick after Buffalo was penalized for having 12 players on the field when he missed a 41-yard attempt. This win marks the third consecutive victory for the Broncos, who have been on an upward trajectory since their loss to the Miami Dolphins. The Bills, on the other hand, have been struggling, having lost four of their last six games and are in danger of missing the playoffs for the first time since 2018.

The game was characterized by turnovers, with the Bills committing four turnovers, including two interceptions and a fumble by quarterback Josh Allen. In contrast, the Broncos have been excelling in forcing turnovers, with 16 takeaways in their past five games. They have also tightened up their defense, allowing only 67 points in their last four outings.

Quarterback Russell Wilson played a crucial role in the Broncos' victory, orchestrating a 10-play, 57-yard drive that set up Lutz's game-winning field goal. The Broncos' recent success can be attributed to their improved performance and a shift in culture under the leadership of coach Sean Payton.

The Bills, on the other hand, have been struggling to score points consistently, with their offense sputtering and failing to surpass 26 points in their last six games. Allen's turnovers and the team's inability to move the football effectively have been major concerns for coach Sean McDermott.

In the end, the Broncos' resilience and ability to capitalize on turnovers proved to be the difference in the game, while the Bills continue to face challenges as they try to turn their season around.
