On 7th December, the Bills faced the Patriots for AFC supremacy. That time, the Patriots were in a rich vein form and unsurprisingly defeated the Bills 14-10. Cut forward to two weeks, and the Patriots expected an encore, but the Bills looked like a completely different outfit.

Heading into the match, the Buffalo-based outfit knew that a win would mean the prime spot at AFC East for them. Keeping this target in mind, the Bills came with a never-before-seen hunger and zeal at the Gilette Stadium and the rest, as they say, is history.

The Buffalo Bills started the proceedings with high possession, setting the tone for the rest of the night. The high intensity was led by quarterback Josh Allen who arguably gave his best performance in the Bills shirt.

The superstar QB finished his night with an incredible 314 yards with 3 touchdowns. He was also ably supported by Isaiah Mckenzie [11 catches for 125 yards] and Stefon Diggs [85 yards and 1 TD] in the 33-21 win.

Emotions were at an all-time high during the Bills-Patriots clash last week. Keeping the fact that the Bills got this away victory after getting humiliated at home, Bills WR Stefon Diggs let his feelings run out of his mouth after scoring a TD as he pointed at the Patriots fans, seemingly mouthing some cuss words.

Considering his act was caught on live TV, Patriots fans expected a minimal fine at the very least. However, the NFL surprised everyone today by not penalizing him. Earlier today, NFL insider Tom Pelissero broke this news. “The NFL did not fine #Bills WR Stefon Diggs,” revealed Pelissero.
