Josh Allen threw five touchdown passes as the Buffalo Bills routed the New England Patriots 47-17 in their AFC wild-card playoff matchup on a chilly Saturday night at Highmark Stadium.

Allen and the Bills had their feet on the gas pedal early and did not let up the entire game. The star quarterback found Dawson Knox two times in the first quarter to take the lead and running back Devin Singletary followed up with two rushing touchdowns in the second quarter.
