NFL Week 12 Game Recap: Buffalo Bills 28, Detroit Lions 25

Detroit Lions cornerback Mike Hughes (23) tackles Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stefon Diggs (14) during the first half at Ford Field in Detroit on Thursday, Nov. 24, 2022.

The Detroit Lions fought hard throughout, but Jared Goff & Co. ultimately left too much time on the clock before kicking the game-tying field goal. With less than a minute left, Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen marched his team down the field, and kicker Tyler Bass made no mistake with the game on the line.

Offensive spotlight: Lions wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown is on track to record a game-high PFF grade after hauling in nine of his 10 targets for 122 yards — 44 after contact — and seven first downs, with a touchdown to boot.

Defensive spotlight: Although the pass-rush game is usually where defensive linemen truly make their mark, Ed Oliver proved to be a dominant force against the run. He tallied four stops and a forced fumble on 20 run-defense snaps.

Rookie spotlight: First-rounder Aidan Hutchinson was responsible for three quarterback pressures on first review, but two were of the unblocked or clean-up variety. He's on track to earn an average to below-average PFF pass-rushing grade as a result.

Offensive line spotlight: Greg Van Roten, Ryan Bates and Spencer Brown combined to allow a whopping 12 pressures for the Bills, but Dion Dawkins and Rodger Saffold held their own with just one pressure surrendered between them.
