Buffalo Bills, New England Patriots

Bills win over Patriots saw an incredible career first for Bill Belichick

The Buffalo Bills handed the Patriots a big L while doing something to Bill Belichick’s defense that has never been done in his New England tenure.

The Patriots and Bills met on Sunday in a battle for supremacy in the AFC East. Buffalo came out on top with a dominating 33-21 win.

It’s not often you see a Bill Belichick defense undone so thoroughly, but that’s exactly what Josh Allen and the Bills did.

In fact, they pulled off something against a Belichick defense that has not been achieved in his 21 years with the Patriots.

Bill Belichick’s Patriots defense had never failed to force a punt before the Bills

Ben Volin of the Boston Globe was the one to point it out on Twitter: This was the first time in 392 games that New England’s defense failed to force a punt.

Credit Allen’s outstanding performance and Buffalo head coach Sean McDermott’s willingness to take risks. He went for four fourth-down conversions and got three of them.

Essentially, the Patriots could not stop Buffalo on any down, and they made them pay for it.

The Bills had seven real drives and two drives that ended each half of play. Those seven drives ended in four touchdowns and two field goals. The only one that didn’t result in points for Buffalo was a turnover on downs at the New England one-yard line.

So the Patriots did get one stop, but that drive went down to the one. All seven competitive Bills drives made it into the red zone. The furthest New England’s defense kept Buffalo from their endzone was the 16-yard line, where Allen and company had to settle for a 34-yard field goal.
