You will be extremely hard pressed to find someone not impressed by the Buffalo Bills right now.
The Bills steam rolled the New England Patriots in their wild-card round matchup at Highmark Stadium on Saturday. The final was 47-17 with a couple of scores from the Pats coming very late when it was all said and done.
Thankfully for Buffalo and unfortunately for New England, postseason games are televised nationally. Everyone saw what happened, and boy did they have good things to say about the Bills.
A rundown of some national reaction to the Bills’ win over the Patriots here:
Ryan Clark, ESPN
Bro, The Bills are beating the Patriots for the sins of their ancestors.
They are cutting the hell up. When it’s your turn, it’s your turn.

Kyle Brandt, Good Morning Football
People here in Buffalo around me saying “let’s see what halftime adjustments Belichick makes”
If the adjustment is trading for Josh Allen, I’m terrified.
Otherwise GTF outta here.

Sam Monson, Pro Football Focus
The Bills are treating this game the way a younger brother that got beat down by his older siblings for over a decade treats the first rumble with them after he learns jiu jitsu
The Pats have their own foot jammed upside their head and are desperately tapping out. Bills giggling

Brett Kollmann, The Film Room
The Buffalo Bills just had the NFL’s first ever perfect offensive game.
No punts. No picks. No fumbles lost. No field goals. All touchdowns on every single drive until the kneel downs.
And they did it against a top five defense.

A Thicc Six. The only thing left is a Trubisky score.

Colin Cowherd, Fox Sports
The Patriots are very good in close games where situational football is crucial. Josh Allen wasn’t really into that tonight.

Bill Simmons, The Ringer
I’d describe this Patriots loss as “grim.”

Adam Schein, CBS Sports
Josh Allen is a combo of John Elway, Paul Bunyan, Nolan Ryan, Greg Maddux. Superstar.

Bill Barnwell, ESPN
Genius of the Bills to have that extra point blocked and avoid the 28-3 halftime lead, speaks to how prepared they were for this game

Decades of comeuppance at play here.. Bills might score 100

Rodger Sherman, The Ringer
my evolution on Josh Allen has gone like
—I don’t think he can play QB in the NFL
—He can’t hit a target, but he’s fun to watch
—Oh okay, he can throw
—He’s actually legitimately great *AND* fun to watch
—Deeply grateful that I get to watch this demigod/centaur play football
