It will not make the playoffs, but the Buffalo Bills are in a better spot for next season. 

Since activating wide receiver Robert Foster from its practice squad, he has become everything the franchise needed in a big-time player. The former University of Alabama standout carried two 100-yard games prior to Sunday’s meeting with the Detroit Lions; however, he decided to emerge with a third showing.

Rookie quarterback Josh Allen loves going to Foster and the once five-star wide out rewarded the Bills’ signal-caller with four catches on five targets at home. 

He totaled 108 receiving yards – including a 43-yard score in the fourth quarter to give Buffalo a 14-13 lead.

Foster ran a post route to the inside, caught the pass along the sideline and kept his balance for the score. It was his second touchdown reception of the season and it delivered the team its fifth win of the year. While he averaged 27 yards per catch against the Lions’ secondary, the 6-foot-2 impressive athlete totals 468 yards on 19 catches in 11 games. 

Detroit is the first NFC team that Foster torched. Prior to Sunday, he accounted for a pair of 100-yard performances against the New York Jets.  

He has two touchdown grabs this season.
