The Buffalo Bills took the Thanksgiving Day stage as a motivated bunch and it showed.
Against a depleted New Orleans roster, the Bills (7-4) routed the Saints (5-6), 31-6.
As is usually the case on the national stage, many eyes were on the game. That caused a nice uptick in positive mentions about the Bills.
With that, here are some national media reactions to Buffalo’s victory on Thursday in New Orleans:

if i told you “there is an NFL tight end named dawson knox” it’d take you 20 seconds to guess what he looked like *and* that he went to ole miss

Happy Thanksgiving everyone. Hoping it’s been a great day. Looking forward to my man Josh Allen (and the Bills) to take it to the Saints. Should be a beat down. See you tomorrow live from The Match

I had over 27.5 penalties so that was a great sequence for me

That Bills drive is how it has to look, man. Quick passes and as much diversity as they can get in the running game. Punish teams for playing only 2-high against you.

This route by Stefon Diggs was just ridiculous 🔥 pic.twitter.com/50LzH39Jwu

If it weren’t for the two picks, this game would be completely out of hand. As it is, the Bills are beating the Saints every which way.

Brees is doing an outstanding job explaining the keys to accuracy.
