Live updates: Bills lead Lions 19-14 at end of third quarter

End of third quarter: Bills lead Lions 19-14

-Q3 0:56: The Bills are trying to hand the Lions this game. They're making just as many mistakes as the Lions. Another three-and-out here and the Lions have another shot to take the lead after a big punt return by Kalif Raymond.

Badgley misses a field goal

-Q3 1:57: Michael Badgley misses his first field goal of the season. That's a killer. Still 19-14.

-Q3 6:45: Lions defense finally gets off the field on third down. Rookie sixth round pick James Houston picks up his second sack of the day. I don't think he'll going back on the practice squad.

Goff takes a safety

-Q3 9:05: Goff takes a sack in the end zone for the safety. Just a horrible sack to take.

Anzalone INT

-Q3 9:55: Alex Anzalone picks off Josh Allen in the red zone after the pass was tipped by Rodrigo. Huge play for this Lions defense.

Second half underway

First-half stats

Goff: 12-19, 124 yards, TD

Williams: 12 rushes, 22 yards, TD

St. Brown: 4 catches, 34 yards, TD

Halftime: Bills 17, Lions 14

Bills get the ball to start the second half.

Lions tie it back up

-Q2 1:52: On fourth-and-1, Goff to St. Brown for the TD. Great play call by Ben Johnson. Bills will have 1:52 and two timeouts to respond. 14-14.

Two-minute warning

Lions will have third-and-goal from the Buffalo 6-yard line when we return.

Bills take the lead

-Q2 7:55: Bills take advantage of the turnover. Allen fumbles the snap and walks right in for the touchdown. Bills take a 14-7 lead.

Bills gobble up Williams fumble

-Q2 13:23: Jamaal Williams fumbles and the Bills recover. Not what the Lions need if they're going to compete in this game.

End of 1st quarter: Lions and Bills tied at 7

Bills tie it up

-Q1 1:58: Josh Allen finds Isaiah McKenzie for the TD. Open over the middle. Will Harris on the coverage. Tie game, 7-7.

Lions strike first

-Q1 6:44: After converting a 4th-and-1, Jamaal Williams does what he does best—score a touchdown. Great long, sustained drive for the Lions to take a 7-0 lead.

-Q1 13:01: Bills go three-and-out as well. Good start for the defense.

-Q1 14:13: Lions go three-and-out to start. Not ideal. O-line didn't hold up well without their two starting guards.


Bills win the toss and defer. Lions get the ball first. Here we go.

Injury designations

ACTIVE: WRs Josh Reynolds (back) and D.J. Chark (ankle)

INACTIVE: G Jonah Jackson (consussion), C Evan Brown (ankle), DLs Michael Brockers, Charles Harris (groin) and Josh Paschal (knee), CB Jeff Okudah (concussion)

The Lions are going to put their three-game winning streak on the line against one of the best teams in the NFL in the Buffalo Bills on Turkey Day.

It's expected to be a historically large crowd at Ford Field, which is great because the Lions are going to need every advantage they can get. Josh Allen and the Bills have looked mortal in recent weeks, but they'll still be a tough matchup for this young team.

Can the Lions pull off a major upset and push their winning streak to four games? It seems unlikely, but you know what they say, "any given Sunday" ... or Thursday, in this case.
