Bills reclaim lead in AFC East with 33-21 win over Pats in Foxborough (full coverage)

After falling to the New England Patriots in Week 13, the Buffalo Bills headed into Gillette Stadium with a vengeance on Sunday and topped New England 33-21 to step back into the drivers seat in the AFC East.

Coming into Sunday’s matchup, it was almost a must-win for the Bills to keep their playoff hopes alive. The Patriots came in with a one-game advantage in the AFC East, and a win over the Bills would have secured New England a playoff spot and be one game away from winning the division.

Isaiah McKenzie had the game of his life against the Patriots, taking over for Cole Beasley who was placed on the COVID-19 list in Week 16, and catching a team-high 11 receptions for 125-yards and a touchdown in the win.

After 2020’s four-touchdown outing, Josh Allen played another outstanding game at Gillette Stadium, finishing 30 of 47 for 314 yards and three touchdowns through the air. Allen also led all Bills in rushing today with 12 carries for 64 yards.

When the two teams met up three weeks ago, the Patriots ran all over the Bills, but on Sunday, Buffalo held New England to a total of 149 rushing yards, with 103 of those coming from Damien Harris who also scored all three of the Pats touchdowns. Mac Jones finished 14 of 32 for 145 yards and two interceptions.

The Bills and Patriots both move to 9-6 on the season.




The Buffalo Bills (8-6) are seeking both revenge and first place in the AFC East when they take on the New England Patriots (9-5) in a pivotal Week 16 showdown in Foxborough, MA.

If the Bills win out (Buffalo hosts the Atlanta Falcons and New York Jets to close out the regular season), they would claim their second straight divisional crown.
