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.
