From 2000-2019 the New England Patriots went 35-5 versus the Buffalo Bills including 32-3 with Tom Brady under center.

Brady is now doing his thing in Tampa, having led the Buccaneers to a Super Bowl title in his first season at the helm in Tampa Bay.

For good measure, Brady added another win against Buffalo this season as the Bucs beat the Bills in overtime in a regular season matchup.

In total Brady has gone 33-3 versus Buffalo in his illustrious career.

But with him no longer in Foxborough, things look a tad bit different. The Bills have a quarterback in Josh Allen, who going forward, may torch the Patriots in a similar way Brady has done Allen’s Bills prior to the young phenom’s arrival.
Saturday’s wild card game was the rubber match between the two division rivals, as they split the regular season matchups. New England won at Buffalo by throwing the football just three times in an early December win.

Buffalo returned the favor a few weeks later by winning at Foxborough and not punting the entire day.

Josh Allen Will Be A Big Problem For The Patriots And NFL Going Forward:

After struggling in the team’s first matchup, Allen has owned the Pats.

He’s a combined 51-72 for 622 yards and eight touchdown passes. On Saturday Allen became the first QB in NFL history to complete 80 percent of his passes (21 of 25), while tossing at least five touchdowns and rushing for at least 50 yards in a single game, regular season or postseason.

He also became just the third QB to throw five touchdowns against a Belichick-coached team, joining future Hall of Famers Drew Brees (2009) and Russell Wilson (2020).

In a postgame interview with CBS Sports following his historic performance Allen was very calm, and looking ahead to next week’s matchup.

“It doesn’t matter what we did today, it’s what we do next week.”

Allen said his team continues to “Find ways to win…” He also cautioned that “we can’t look too far into the future.”
Head coach Sean McDermott is elated to see his quarterback developing into a show-stopper right in front of his eyes. “I thought 17 had an incredible game today,” McDermott gushed.
The Bills will face Kansas City, who blew Pittsburgh out of the stadium on Sunday, in the divisional round.

This Version Of The Bills Can Beat Anyone:

The Bills manhandled the Patriots 47-17 on Saturday and in the process didn’t allow a sack, had 0 punts, 0 turnovers and 0 field goal attempts, much to the delight of “Bills Mafia,” and the chagrin of the Patriots faithful.

It’s the largest playoff loss in Patriots playoff history excluding their SB XX 46-10 loss to the Bears, and their worst playoff loss since a 33-14 setback to the Ravens in 2009.

Buffalo’s win and Allen’s emphatic signature performance left no gray area and was a clean changing of the guard in the AFC East.
