The New England Patriots aren’t used to being on the wrong side of playoff blowouts. Fans had a lot to process as they were battered by the Bills.
The Patriots and Bills met twice in the second half of the regular season and split the season series.
So there was reason to believe their AFC Wild Card matchup on Saturday night could be an intriguing battle of division foes.
Then the Bills turned up the heat on offense and New England had no answers.
By the time halftime rolled around, Buffalo helped a commanding 27-3 lead over the Patriots.
Patriots fans had a time watching their team lose to the Bills
Fans on Twitter went through their own stages of grief over the lopsided scoreline.
The rest of the league enjoyed it a lot more than those in New England.
Saturday was the first time New England has played a playoff game since Tom Brady left the franchise.
While rookie quarterback Mac Jones has done an admirable job leading the team this season, he threw two interceptions and struggled to get the offense moving.
On the other side of things, Josh Allen looked like an absolute star. He threw three touchdowns in the first half and gave the Patriots defense fits with his legs.
Whether it was the pass or the run, the New England defense simply got roasted by Buffalo at seemingly every turn.
