Josh Allen picks apart Patriots as Bills move top of AFC East
Josh Allen picks apart Patriots: The Buffalo Bills beat the New England Patriots 24-10 on Thursday night, their first AFC East victory of the season, thanks to two touchdown throws from Josh Allen. Devin Singletary scored on a one-yard run to help the Bills (9-3) win their third straight game and take a half-game lead over Miami in the division. Buffalo was 0-2 against division opponents. The Bills have won their last three meetings with the Patriots, including the playoffs last season.
Allen became the first player in NFL history with three seasons of 25 passing TDs and five rushing scores. He went 22 of 33 for 223 yards, consistently buying time in the pocket and finding soft spots in the Patriots’ zone. The Bills have struggled at times in the red zone, but went 3 for 3 on Thursday.
Despite playing without Von Miller, who suffered a knee injury in a Thanksgiving victory against Detroit, Buffalo’s defence kept the Patriots to three points in the remaining three quarters. After a season-best three-game winning streak, the Patriots have dropped two consecutive games.
A week after delivering his most complete performance of the season, Mac Jones of New England was frazzled and uncertain for the majority of the evening. He completed the game 22 of 36 for 195 yards and one touchdown. The Patriots went 3 for 12 on third down and 0 for 1 inside the opponent’s red zone.
