Buffalo Bills make history in 47-17 playoff win against New England Patriots

The Buffalo Bills made history in their 47-17 blowout victory over the New England Patriots – Buffalo never punted, kicked a field goal, nor turned the ball over, making them the first team ever in the NFL to go an entire game with no kicks, punts, or turnovers.

Buffalo’s first negative play from scrimmage came on the second-to-final play of the game; the Bills scored on their first seven possessions, which makes them the first team in NFL playoff history to accomplish that feat. The Bills are also only the second team in the Super Bowl era to score a touchdown on seven straight possessions in a playoff game. The only other team to accomplish that feat was the 2019 Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Divisional Playoffs against the Houston Texans. The 47 points were the most points a Bill Belichick coached team has ever allowed in a playoff game, including his time as a head coach and defensive coordinator.
