Here are the 3 things that we learned from Bills at patriots :-
1.Season sweep complete
The Bills were the previous AFC East team this season with an opportunity to slide the Patriots, an undertaking that had not been achieved since the 2000 season.
Buffalo put an explicit signature on their first AFC East title, finalized in last week’s win, with a beating of New England by a count of 38-9 to pair with their 24-21 Week 8 win over the Patriots for the season spread.
But if you ask the players, Monday night was just another achievement in going 1-0 for the week.
“I believe for us, it’s taking it one game at a time,” told Mitch Morse. When you come into Foxborough and play a Bill Belichick team, you know it’s giving on to be a tough war. I’m just proud of the guys.”
“It’s a permission to even be a part of such a memorable run,” said Quinton Jefferson. “I want to protect it going into another week and even in the playoffs. But it’s drug, man. Just, you look over from top to bottom on the roster – violation, safety, outstanding teams – and, man, there’s just a lot of skill.
This is hands down the greatly talented roster I’ve ever existed a part of. We’ve just got to invest on the time now. You don’t get too many enrollments like this and it’s hard to keep them, particularly with so many youthful players.
2. Allen-Diggs combo sets records
First in Monday night’s game Patriots’ CB JC Jackson earned the baseball referee ‘safe’ warning when a pass from Josh Allen was just out of sweep for Stefon Diggs. Buffalo’s top receiver began chatting with Jackson on the means back to the chain of scrimmage.
And accomplishing the no fly zone (gesture) and I don’t certainly like that very much,” told Diggs. “I don’t seize to kindly to that. So I told him, ‘Relax.’ I’m not getting on to say what else I told to him. So I just said him to relax.”
Little did Jackson understand that Diggs was nearly to take over the game.
Buffalo’s emotional wideout did the remainder, racing next 40 yards to the end zone and chatting to Jackson and Jonathan Jones, both of whom he beat on the play on his way in for the score.
“That’s not commonly a play that gets broadened that long,” Allen conceded. “It was sort of that early window that was sort of closed.
I was looking at Gabe wide and Stef believed me and kept riding his route. I was prepared to put it on him and he did the rest of his work. That’s, in my impression, the best receiver in the game.”
So we were striving to get it to Gabe, but the guy came out bailing out. So Josh blow me in the second window and Josh is really playing some good football and he paused on it.
I’m just striving to do my job of getting open and he did the rest tossing me a great ball and I’m just striving to catch them.”
Moulds’ certificate of 1,368 receiving yards, which had felt for 22 years, was eclipsed after Diggs’ 50-yard touchdown play.
“It means a lot to me just because of where I arrived from, how hard I work, but always kind of keep it in viewpoint and always keep God in the front of my mind and thank him and then thank everybody that’s implicated because it’s really not a personal thing,” said Diggs of the earning yardage record.
“That (record) goes to my quarterback. That goes to my line and goes to my horrible coordinator. Things that occur in my favor I give it all to God so I’m just so pleased for anything and just striving to move forward. We’ve got another tournament so we’ll just try to keep it going.”
3. Bills aggressive on fourth down
Buffalo arrived into the game as the most profitable third down modification team in the league. But in the first half when the Bills violation was halted short of the line to gain on three different occasions, head coach Sean McDermott appointed to go for it every time.
Four plays dead Buffalo was in the end zone on a five-yard touchdown run by Zack Moss.
On their arising ownership the Bills were again faced with a fourth down circumstance.
On a 4th-and-2 at the Patriots 43, Allen establish Dawson Knox behind the second level of the safety for a 12-yard pickup to move the sticks then and extend another Buffalo scoring drive as Lee Smith grabbed in a four-yard touchdown pass five plays later.
“Yeah, we love it,” said Jon Feliciano, when they’re given the opportunity to restore on fourth down.
I think we’re at our decent offensively when we’re attacking. And that’s what we did.”
Buffalo is now 8 for 10 on fourth down modifications on the season. That vaults them up to second in the association in fourth down modification percentage at 80 percent behind only Miami at 87.5 percent.
