Nov. 26 (UPI) -- Josh Allen threw for 260 yards and four scores to lead the Buffalo Bills to a dominant victory over the New Orleans Saints in New Orleans.

The Bills held the Saints offense to 190 total yards in the 31-6 victory Thursday at the Caesars Superdome. The loss extended the Saints' losing streak to four-consecutive games since their Oct. 31 upset of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.


"It was a good night, getting the victory by any means," Allen told reporters. "There are still some things to clean up and we will look at that on tape and learn from it.

"But I'm happy with how our guys responded from a short week and a tough loss Sunday."
