BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – Bills quarterback Josh Allen left Sunday’s game against the New England Patriots after taking a vicious helmet-to-helmet hit from corner back Jonathan Jones early in the fourth quarter.

Allen, who scrambled out of the pocket trying to convert a 3rd-and-8, was initially hit by Duron Harmon before Jones leveled the Bills’ second year quarterback.

Allen struggled for the better part of three quarters against New England, and finished 13-for-28 with 153 yards and three interceptions.

He ran for a score on Buffalo’s opening drive of the second half to pull the Bills within 13-10.

Backup Matt Barkley entered the game and led the Bills inside the five yard line, connecting with John Brown for a gain of 28 yards .

However, on 4th and goal from the three yard line, Barkley’s toss to Zay Jones went off the wide receiver’s hand and fell incomplete.

Buffalo currently trails New England 16-10 in the fourth quarter.
