The past 4 p.m. has been fun for Buffalo Bills fans on social media. For good reason, after the Bills crushed the New England Patriots, 47-17 in their Wild Card Round playoff game at Highmark Stadium.
Minus the knees late in the game, the Bills’ offense scored one touchdown on seven possessions against the Patriots; and did not face a 4th down, return the ball, punt or attempt a field goal. This is the first time in NFL history that this has happened – the football equivalent of a perfect game.
Bills quarterback Josh Allen completed 21 of 25 passes for 300+ yards and 5 touchdowns. Allen barely missed a perfect passer rating (158.3) and had more TD assists than misses.
Two of those touchdown passes went to tight end Dawson Knox, which were the first two touchdowns of the game.
Knox’s first TD was a pass Allen admitted after the game that he was actually trying to throw, but Knox caught it.
On Sunday, Knox had some fun on Twitter with Barstool Sports president and Patriots fan Dave Portnoy; specifically, a tweet Portnoy had a week ago that cast shade on the Bills winning the AFC East for a second straight season.
Portnoy said it wouldn’t mean anything if New England beat them in the playoffs…which they did.
Dawson Knox is one of my favorite players in post-game interviews, because of how happy he is with the answers and how happy he is with it all.
This is a classic example.
The Bills will face the Kansas City Chiefs on the road in the Divisional Round if the Chiefs beat the Pittsburgh Steelers tonight. If the Steelers win, the Bills will host the Cincinnati Bengals at Highmark Stadium.
[THREAD] If McDermott takes this Bills team to the Super Bowl and ultimately wins it, will he instantly become the best head coach in Bills history?
