The lingering sting of being embarrassed on home turf by the New England Patriots didn’t sit well with defensive end Jerry Hughes and the Buffalo Bills. On Saturday night, the Bills did something about it by erasing any doubt of who now rules the AFC East. Josh Allen set a team playoff record with five touchdown passes, including two to Dawson Knox, and Devin Singletary ran for two scores in the first half of a 47-17 throttling of the division-rival Patriots in a wild-card playoff game.
New England Patriots TEAM NOTES Patriots and Bills meet for third time in 41 days. Kickoff temperature of 7 degree was third coldest game in team history. Devin McCourty makes 24th postseason start, tied for fourth-most in NFL history.
Pretty much everything about the offense It was about as dominating of an offensive performance as you will see in a playoff game. The Bills scored 47 points, rolled up 482 yards, ran for 174 yards, went 6-for-7 on third down (85.7%), scored a touchdown on every single offensive possession (other than the kneel down at the end of the game), and did not punt a single time (again).
