HOUSTON — The Buffalo Bills, the only New York team in the NFL playoffs, were this close.
Deshaun Watson spun out of a would-be sack and coolly completed a pass that set up the winning field goal in overtime for the Houston Texans, who rallied from a double-digit second-half deficit for a 22-19 victory over the Bills in the first round of the playoffs Saturday.
Both teams had to punt on their first possessions of overtime. On Houston’s next drive, Watson evaded a sack by wriggling away from one defender and bouncing off another before rolling out to find Taiwan Jones for a 34-yard reception to set up first-and-goal. Ka'imi Fairbairn then kicked a 28-yard field goal to lift Houston to the victory.
The Bills continue their playoff win drought; the last time they won a playoff game was Dec. 30, 1995.
