The Buffalo Bills defeated their AFC East Rival, the New England Patriots, Saturday night, 47-17. On a night that will be remembered as probably the coldest game in Bills history turned out to be a remarkable performance by Buffalo. As a fan, I had a feeling that the Bills were going to show up ready to play. I thought that the Patriots would be the Patriots of the past and spoil our hopes of advancing to the AFC Divisional round. Fortunately, the Bills showed up like they had unfinished business from their win over New England back in December. When the extra point was blocked after going up 27-0, I thought there would be a change in momentum, but the Bills were not going to let anything slip away.
Thankfully, the Bills did not see Matt Haack and the Bills punt team for the second straight time against New England. Given his struggles last week, I did not want to see him out there the other night. Buffalo did not have to punt once tonight, and on the night, they had 482 yards of total offense against the Patriots. Honestly, it was so nice to see the Patriots get killed, and I’m glad it was my Bills because they did this to teams for years. I think it’s time that they got a taste of their own medicine. When the Patriots had their undefeated regular season in 2007, they defeated the Bills 56-10. It is Buffalo’s time to beat the Patriots now and everybody else in the AFC East.
The Bills will travel to Arrowhead for the second time this season. I think we all would have rather had a home game against Joe Burrow and the Bengals instead of facing a Chiefs team that is looking much better than they did at any point in the regular season. With revenge on their minds, the Bills will look to clinch their spot back in the AFC Championship Game.
