ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — Josh Allen threw two touchdown passes and scored another rushing and Micah Hyde batted down Philip Rivers last-second desperation pass in Buffalo's 27-24 win over the Indianapolis Colts in a wild-card playoff game.

Buffalo snapped an 0-6 postseason skid by winning in the playoffs for the first time since a 37-22 victory over Miami on Dec. 30, 1995.

It came in the Bills' first home playoff game in 24 years.

The game wasn't decided until the final play when Rivers' fourth-and-11 heave from Buffalo's 47 fell incomplete.
