Everyone in America had their eyes on their televisions sets on Saturday night when the New England Patriots faced the Buffalo Bills on CBS. Buffalo scored a touchdown on all seven of its offensive possessions in a demolishing 47-17 win at home over New England.
If you are a New England Patriots hater, this was a beautiful scene. If you are a New England Patriots fan, well sorry not sorry. New England has been doing this for the past 20 years to the rest of the AFC East. Now Buffalo returned the favor and the Patriots received a dose of their own medicine and even New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick admitted it after the game was over.
Belichick had his quarterback in Tom Brady when they dominated. Now, it is Sean McDermott’s and Josh Allen’s turn to rule the AFC East. Allen was basically a magician and he just turned it onto another level. He completed 21-of-25 passes for 308 yards and five touchdowns. Josh Allen also rushed for 66 yards on six carries. None of his touchdown passes were to Stefon Diggs and isn’t that a scary sight? This is the best they have looked all season long.
Buffalo dominated the line of scrimmage also. Allen received help from all of his teammates in this offense. This was a magical game for offensive coordinator Brian Daboll, who is getting interviewed to potentially be an NFL head coach somewhere. He had tons of excellent game plans and the New England Patriots defense had no answers.
The Bills kept their foot on the gas pedal. Hopefully, for their sake down the road, they can win a Super Bowl and they haven’t won one in franchise history and have not been there since 1994 and they lost four straight of them. Buffalo is going to be an extremely tough out and they were just in the AFC Championship Game last year.
Buffalo broke the New England Patriots fanbase and social media last night. This was awesome and I hope everyone else enjoyed it.
The New England Patriots (10-8) season concludes.
The Buffalo Bills (12-6) will either host the Cincinnati Bengals (11-7) next week or they will be on the road and face the Kansas City Chiefs (12-5).
