Breshad Perriman just had three catches with the Bucs this season, but one of them ended up being the biggest catch for the team on Sunday. His 58-yard dash to the end zone in overtime saw the comeback hopes of the Bills getting dashed completely. This resulted in the Bucs winning 33-27 for their fourth consecutive victory as they moved to 10-3.

The Bills, on the other hand, lost their second game in six games to get down to 7-6. The Buffalo Bills did make it pretty interesting, though. While they were trailing by 21 points at halftime, the Bills were still down by 17 in the fourth quarter after which they pulled up to score 17 points in the regulation time to force overtime. 

Buccaneers Secure Win over Bills Through Breshad Perriman

Dawson Knox managed to score a 15-yard touchdown pass from Josh Allen with just 9 seconds remaining, after which the Bucs went three-and-out, with Allen leading the Bills on a nine-play, 46-yard drive. After this, Allen hit Davis with a 4-yard TD pass. At that point, the Bills had just two ways of winning the game. They got to the 7-yard line of Tampa Bay with 28 seconds left, but on third and two, Allen couldn’t complete the pass to Stefon Diggs. Now, while the Bills wanted the flag, they didn’t get it in the end. This was when Breshad Perriman decided to move into the offensive. 

With the Bills settling for a 25-yard field goal by Tyler Bass with 22 seconds remaining in the regulation period of the game, they managed to force overtime with a clutch 14-play, 70-yard drive. Although the Bulls got hold of the ball first, they went three and out. After this, the Bucs simply needed just six plays, a replay ruling along with a penalty flag- in order to end the game.

The 1-yard run of Leonard Fournette was also reviewed but ultimately upheld. This was when Tom Brady threw a touch to Breshad Perriman over the middle, who was being covered by Tremaine Edmunds, the linebacker for the Bills- and who chased Perriman throughout the end zone. 

With Breshad Perriman being able to score the touchdown, this was Brady’s 700th touchdown pass.
