Another primetime game, another win for the Buffalo Bills. Naturally for those in western New York, this one was just a bit sweeter than most.
For the first time since 1999, the Bills (12-3) swept the New England Patriots (6-9) in one single season. But once again while doing so, the usual suspects such as quarterback Josh Allen and wide receiver Stefon Diggs, impressed many outside of Buffalo as well.
With that, here’s a rundown of some national media and other reactions to the Bills’ 38-9 win over the Patriots in Week 16:

He won’t win it—but @JoshAllenQB is 100% worthy of the MVP this season…he has been flat out unstoppable since week 1.
400 rush yds/8 tds
Since week 1🤷🏼♂️

Bills became the first team to sweep the Patriots in the regular season since 2000, Bill Belichick’s first season with the team. Before Monday night, the Patriots were the only NFL team not to be swept by a divisional foe since division realignment in 2002.

Skip had the nerve to say Baker is better than qb Josh Allen. My only question is, at what? No G.M would currently would take Baker over Allen not even Browns G.M
