Bills rolling over Patriots, up 27-3 at halftime

AFC Wild Card Playoffs - New England Patriots v Buffalo Bills

Bills kicker Tyler Bass had an extra point blocked after a Devin Singletary touchdown in the second quarter of Saturday night’s game against the Patriots, but you’d be hard pressed to find anything else that’s gone wrong for the home team.

They’ve scored four touchdowns on four offensive possessions and rolled up 300 yards of offense while shutting out their divisional rivals through the first 29-plus minutes of play. They’ll return for the second half with a 27-3 lead and a clear path to another home playoff game next weekend.

Josh Allen threw touchdown passes to tight end Dawson Knox on the first two drives of the game and running back Devin Singletary got the ball into the end zone the next two times that Buffalo had the ball. Allen is 12-of-16 for 172 yards and he’s run five times for 63 yards against a Patriots defense that didn’t offer anything more than token resistance to the Bills in the first half.

Adjustments will likely come, but erasing a 24-point lead on the road in frigid conditions may be asking too much of rookie quarterback Mac Jones. He’s 9-of-13 for 80 yards and did move the ball well on the team’s first possession, but Bills safety Micah Hyde made a spectacular play to pick him off in the end zone. The Bills have sacked Jones a couple of times and the pass rush will likely be coming heavy with the Pats needing to throw their way back into the game.

  1. I haven’t seen a game so one-sided since the Rams held the Seahawks to -7 total offense back in the mid 70’s.

    Unfortunately for the Patriots, they aren’t playing the Falcons and Matty Choker.

  2. You guys should just go home at halftime. You didn’t come to play anyway. You’re getting curb stomped. But you want Allen to run so you can mess him up. Hahaha!!! He’s a sprays l superstar

  3. Ugly. Never mind Mac Jones – the Pats’ defense hasn’t come close to stopping the Bills tonight. Awfully hard to play catchup when the D doesn’t offer any resistance.

  4. This isn’t a rookie QBs fault, Bill has no excuse for this pathetic excuse for a defense, this humiliation is flat out on an overrated head coach

  5. Let’s hope the Bills don’t take the foot off the gas. Hope they pound the Patriots into next season.

  6. Josh, Bills path to another home game next week is not clear, unless we are counting on a Pittsburgh win. Love what you guys do tho! PFT is the best, Go Bills!!

  7. Not a good combo for Pats…..trailing and needing Mac to throw them to victory. His arm is weak to begin with and is even weaker in the cold weather. Some of Allen’s throws off his back foot have more zip on them than Mac’s when he steps into them. This game is ugly.

  8. Allen’s ability to run, throw, go deep and use all of the field trumps Belichick!s taking away one aspect.

    That said, the Patriots execution on defense was pathetic.

    The Bills ni they are the better team and they are proving it.

  9. The pats are not interested in playing in this weather. You can see it. They wanna get the game over with and go indoors. Btw the hoodie lock look doesn’t fly when you’re like 85 years old. It’s almost like the Clint Eastwood thing being tough at 95.

  10. Exposing this garbage defense.. getting pushed around and punked. This is a no talent unit

  11. Where’s all the Pat fans saying Mac Jones is the start of the second dynasty? 3 points in a half of a playoff game?? Sorry but this is Darnold level of failure. Bills be stomping these guys. If it keeps going this way we’ll see Hoyer soon in this game lol!

  12. THE BOSTON MASSACRE…….I can hear a pin drop from all these Pats fans who always comment here

  13. A Belichick hater uses the GOAT’s name as a moniker to call the man Jimmy Johnson says is the greatest coach in NFL history overrated.

    On another thread he blames Jones for Micah Hyde’s interception.

    Sometimes the other team is just clearly better.

  14. Funny how all the Hac Jones fans are scurrying to their basements. Tom Brady 2.0 just threw his second INT of the gm on the first drive of the second half. Gonna love Belichick grunting thru this post game conference.

  15. Question… How many New England Patriots does it take to stop the Buffalo Bills ?

    Answer… We will never know… they only allow 11 men maximum.

  16. Mac has been just okay. Defense let us 5 straight touchdowns. That’s on the coach and defense, not the QB. Pathetic showing.

    Guys that have had great careers are showing their time has come to move on. Hightower, Van Noy, Guy, Collins, McCourtey, etc…

  17. My team is getting creamed, omg. It sure looks like the Patriots as a team would rather be in front of a fire sipping on a nice Merlot than being out in that 5 degree weather.

    Jones hasn’t been great, but this is on the defense.
    ———————————
    What defense?

  19. Hopefully Brian Daboll the ex-Pat and now Bills offensive coordinator would be hired as a head coach somewhere.

  20. This fluke loss is a one-off event. With BB’s huge cap space, he’ll sign a bunch of top free agents, let a QB drop to him in the draft, and mold this team in one off-season into an AFCE juggernaut that will dominate. Oh, wait…

  21. Patriots didn’t belong in the playoffs… 8 of the patriots 10 wins were agains the Jets twice, the browns, the chargers, panthers, the Texans, the falcons and the Jaguars. .. 5 of those teams are picking in the first 6 picks next year. Cake schedule for soft team. Bill is/was nothing without Brady.

  22. Touchback is missing…..again? I know where he is checking out the best books on excuses from the library. Just think…the Steelers beat these same Bills. LOL

  23. Long time pats fan here well we knew this was coming huh .. as the years n years of Brady covering up the fact that BB just can’t draft as yes they are playing scrubs for the DB’s along with all the grandpa LB’s who all should have retired last year … so let the Bill fans enjoy it as we had our fun and perhaps BB’s time has come as the talent differential is so vast between these two teams its rather embarrassing but however the flying elvises need to stink for a few just so they can acquire some talent as in like hands up how many good attractive free agents unless highly overpaid sees the beantowners as a good team to sign with .. so time for a little karma and another team gets to be atop of the AFC east cause with a rebuild to commence we are no longer the beast …. :S

  24. Didn’t lot of Belichick’s believers claim that his defense won the first 3 SB? This defense is much better than the defense Brady had in 2001.

  25. Hate to admit it but II don’t think Mac Jones is elite. He’s been coddled.

    Oh we are right here. Not sure what you expect us to say though.

  27. Mac Jones just might be the most overrated rookie QB in the NFL in many years. NE is getting throttled!!

  28. Isn’t BB son the defensive coordinator??? If he was not kin would he have a job tomorrow morning?? One must wonder

  29. Oh we are right here. Not sure what you expect us to say though.

    Told you before the season started : Belichick is a garbage on offense, and his defense is a PAPER TIGER.

    Bills crush Pats 37 – 6 (2 Jones picks)
    Bengals cruise 27 – 13

    Looks like I’m 2 for 2

  31. HAHAHAHAHAHA! 47-10. It would be 50-10 if the kicker would have hit all the extra points. This is glorious.

  32. Flo remembers when Tom Coughlin put up what 62 on Jimmy Johnson in his final coaching performance. Buffalo could put up 61 on the greatest defensive mastermind of all time. What will Belichick do Flo? Will he retire from coaching and go back to the Giants in the front office?

    You mght have, glad you remember. This season has certainly disproven all of that. The Pats were a surprisingly good team this year. Just not a level to be a contender yet.

  34. It is 47-10 & there is still 8 min left. Boston baked beans are hiding in the basement & crying into their blankets. Hope Bills keep Allen in game and go 8 straight drives for TDs. This is glorious payback to Pats from not only the Bills fans but even for Steelers fans, who Belichick continually cheated against for yrs. Karma is a beautiful thing.

  35. I think Bills fans remember all those games the Patriots ran the score up on them. I believe it will be payback time for the next decade.

  36. The sequel to this will be when the Bears do the same thing to the post-Rodgers Packers.

  37. Mac Jones had 2 interceptions, 1 was a deflection and the other was a great play by a Bill defender. He had that big dropped pass on the first drive which cost them a score. I think he’s pretty good for a rookie and has a solid career ahead of him. Granted these running QBs are constantly coming into the league so the Garrapollo level QBs are always going to be under pressure. We’ll have to see in the coming years if Mac can keep his job. Honestly even Brady couldn’t have won with that shabby defense and Josh having a career game.

  38. Awesome season proud of the guys but they just didnt have it tonight vs buffalo hats off to the Bill’s see you next season.

    If you focus on the game rather than other fans you will notice the Patriot as a football team had a wildly successful season. Its actually why the team is back to upsetting you this much.
