Snow fell on the field in Buffalo in the first half, and there was a change in the game between the Vikings and the Bills, with the home team leading 24-10 at halftime. Josh Allen, whose status was up in the air all week due to an elbow injury, got the start. Allen completed 14 of 18 first-half passes for 136 yards and a touchdown and added another 46 yards on the ground with three touchdowns in his 64th consecutive start.

Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins ​​showed slippery feet in the first 30 minutes, dropping back and trying to snap the ball to Dalvin Cook, who fumbled it back, and on a turnover intended for wide receiver KJ Osborn over the middle.

Minnesota easily marched down the field and scored the opening-drive touchdown six plays later with a deep pass to wide receiver Justin Jefferson for a 22-yard score. However, the Vikings were unable to make much of the first half in the red zone. Minnesota had two first-and-goals from Buffalo, but were punted for a 27-yard field goal thanks to an offensive pass interference penalty on tight end TJ Hockenson. Cousins ​​finished the half with 143 passing yards, the opening score and an interception, completing 12 of 21 attempts.

Bills running back Devin Singletary is coming off one of his best games, totaling 33 rushing yards and two rushing touchdowns on his first six carries. However, his final three carries of the half went for just eight yards and included a lost fumble. A key sequence of the half came when the Vikings elected to pass on third- and fourth-down plays after a two-minute warning from the Bills’ 28, both resulting in incompletions, which turned into a fumble when a field goal was possible. They were easy. Allen shook off a pregame elbow injury threat and ran 25 yards to cap the drive. Four plays later, Buffalo made it 24-10 with two touchdowns on Allen’s arm to wide receiver Gabe Davis in the end zone for an 11-yard score with 32 seconds left in the half.
