The Bills scored on their first possession as well, putting the Washington Football Team down 21-0 with 10:42 left in the first half.

But no Ron Rivera-coached team is going to call it quits. 

After the Bills' third touchdown, Washington had the ball at its 25 yard line. It took Antonio Gibson just two plays to score, including his two-yard run up the middle followed by an incredible 73-yard catch-and-run.
