A home victory over the Green Bay Packers by a score of 27-17 on Halloween night was another gift for Buffalo Bills supporters.

Allen threw a 1-yard touchdown throw to TE Dawson Knox in the first quarter, giving the Bills an early lead. On the play before the touchdown, Allen ran for 20 yards and juked out a Green Bay defender to get to the 1-yard line, where he then found Knox for a touchdown pass.
On the next possession, Diggs showed up and made an acrobatic catch in the end zone for a 26-yard touchdown to put the Vikings up 14-0. The Packers responded with a touchdown when Aaron Rodgers found wide receiver Romeo Doubs.
With a minute left in the first half, the Bills scored a touchdown on an end-around rush by McKenzie for 7 yards and added a field goal by Tyler Bass to increase their lead to 24-7. Buffalo had a 234-132 advantage in total offensive yardage over Green Bay through the first half of the game.
