The New England Patriots were rather embarrassed Saturday night in their 47-17 Wild Card loss to the Bills.
Seven possessions, seven touchdowns it was for the Bills, as they cakewalked through New England’s defense. Following an opening drive that looked rather easy for Buffalo, the Patriots did look like they were going to respond right back.
Mac Jones, from around the 40-yard line, aired it out to Nelson Agholor in the end zone, who looked like he had a touchdown in his hands. But, out of nowhere, Micah Hyde leaped up and snatched it away for the interception.
From there, it was an extreme momentum shift. With two minutes left in the first half, it was already 27-0 before the Patriots finally got on the board with a field goal late in the half.
The Patriots’ first-half woes bleed onto the second half, as New England began the third quarter with an interception that wasn’t exactly Jones’ fault, as it tipped off the hands of Hunter Henry and into the hands of Buffalo defensive back Levi Wallace.
New England was able to get into the end zone twice, as Kendrick Bourne notched a pair of touchdowns that were rather a consolation prize.
