Bill Belichick‘s New England Patriots needed a miracle, as they needed to beat the Miami Dolphins and then hope the Jets could upset the Bills. Neither thing happened, but Bill Belichick’s squad is playoff-bound, nonetheless.
Buffalo entered as the third seed, whereas New England headed in as the sixth seed, which meant the two AFC East teams would go head-to-head in the wild card round of the 2021 NFL Playoffs.
In the end, the Bills wiped the floor with the Mac Jones-led Pats, 47-17. Belichick’s squad could not do anything, as the NFL world saw one of the worst beatdowns in playoff history.
