Bills hold the tie-breaker in the AFC East after defeating New England 33-21
The final meeting for the Bills and Pats finally held meaning besides being a division rivalry, but
to have a decider in who wins the AFC East. Buffalo was hit with Covid-19, which kept WR Cole
Beasley, a key target for QB Josh Allen out of the line-up. Stefon Diggs, Emmanuel
Sanders and Isaiah McKenzie were the starting WRs but the Pats assumed they were going to
look at slowing them down.
That wasn’t the case today, unsung hero WR Isaiah McKenzie stepped up to the plate and knew this game was on the line. He hauled in a career high 11 catches 125 yards and a touchdown and right behind him. Diggs had some big catches and finished with 7 catches for 85 yards
and a touchdown. The Bills led 17-7 in the first half and maintained control with a 20-14 led in the 3rd quarter. In the 4th quarter Patriots down 26-14, they got a much needed touchdown to make the game interesting. It seemed like the Patriots could steal the Bills' thunder, but the Bills used their running attack to their advantage and picked up crucial first downs. Buffalo hit the kill switch and iced the game with a touchdown with under three minutes left in regulation.
