LAS VEGAS. – Shaking off a sore left shoulder, Josh Allen threw for two touchdowns and ran for one more, guiding the Buffalo Bills to a 30-23 win over the Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday.
Buffalo started consecutive seasons 4-0 for just the third time in franchise history and the first time since 1991-92, when the Bills lost the Super Bowl.
The Bills have scored at least 30 points in three straight games and are averaging 30.75 points per game, the third-highest in the NFL.
Las Vegas (2-2) lost its second game in a row after losing to New England last week. It was the Raiders' first loss at the brand-new Allegiant Stadium, which cost $ 2 billion.
Allen, who has a sensational start to the season, dissected the Raiders' perimeter with precise passes down the center of the field, to the wings and between defenders. Allen continues to display excellent communication with newcomer Stefon Diggs, who finished with six receptions for 115 yards.
Derek Carr had a solid showing for the Raiders, completing 32 of 44 passes for 311 yards and two touchdowns. Carr, who has yet to throw an interception this season, passed Ken Stabler to establish himself as the franchise's all-time leader with 151 touchdown passes.
