The Patriots’ 2021 season is over, and it ended in embarrassing fashion. The Buffalo Bills are moving on to the divisional round after a 47-17 romp at Highmark Stadium, led by five touchdown passes from Josh Allen. Buffalo had seven possessions with Allen in the game, and scored touchdowns on all of them.

Scroll down for a recap of the top highlights from the game. Unfortunately for the Patriots, most of them come from the Bills’ side.

  • Q4, 8:37: Bills just rubbing in the Patriots' face now

    The Bills are running it up and rubbing it in the Patriots’ face. Josh Allen just threw his fifth touchdown pass of the game, and this one went to offensive lineman Tommy Doyle. 47-10.

  • Q4, 13:22: Bills just keep on scoring

    The Bills have had six possessions and have scored a touchdown on all of them. Josh Allen now has four touchdowns, the latest one to Gabriel Davis after he breaks free from Myles Bryant.

  • Q3, 4:12: Patriots finally find the end zone

    Thanks to Kendrick Bourne, the Patriots can at least say they scored one touchdown tonight. Bourne sparked the Pats’ drive with a 43-yard catch-and-run, then caught a wide-open touchdown pass in the back of the end zone on fourth down.

    It’s still 33-10 Bills. The Patriots need to step up and make big plays defensively to have any chance of a real comeback.

  • Q3, 8:48: Bills pouring it on

    The Bills can’t be stopped on the ground, through the air, in the short areas, deep areas. Josh Allen just burned the Patriots defense for another big play, this time a 34-yard strike to Emmanuel Sanders in the end zone. It’s now 33-3 Bills. Well, at least the Pats blocked another extra point.

  • Q2, 1:53: Bills 4-for-4 scoring touchdowns

    Four drives, four touchdowns for the Bills. Devin Singletary gets the ball again, cuts it to the outside, and he can’t be caught. It’s now 27-0 Buffalo with halftime approaching.

    As part of this latest march down the field, Stefon Diggs got a step on J.C. Jackson deep down the field and reeled the ball in for a 45-yard catch from Allen.

  • Q2, 7:24: Bills up three scores

    The Bills are already turning this thing into a runaway. This time, Devin Singletary powers it in from three yards out to give the Bills their third touchdown of the game. It’s now 20-0 Buffaloย after the extra point was blocked.

  • Q1, 0:40: Bills strike again

    The Bills successfully cash in on a Patriots turnover. Josh Allen finds Dawson Knox in the end zone again, this time on a bullet over the middle. Knox was tightly covered by Adrian Phillips, but Allen made a pinpoint throw.

    The Patriots are really playing uphill now. It doesn’t look like the Bills are going to screw up any time soon.

  • Q1, 5:40: Patriots' first drive ends in INT

    Mac Jones looked to be putting a promising drive together for the Patriots, but unfortunately, the Pats’ first drive ends with a nice play by safety Micah Hyde to intercept Jones’ pass attempt in the end zone.

    Jones did convert two third-and-long plays on the drive, one a 30-yard completion to Hunter Henry and the other a 15-yard scramble. The interception was on a deep ball intended for Nelson Agholor, but Hyde came across to pick the ball off.

  • Q1, 9:58: Bills score first

    Josh Allen just threw a touchdown on a pass attempt that looked like he was attempting to throw it away. Tight end Dawson Knox somehow came down with the ball and got both feet in bounds in the back corner of the end zone, giving the Bills an early lead after an impressive opening drive.

    Allen beat the Pats with both his arm and his legs as Buffalo marched right down the field in nine plays. He burned them for a 26-yard scramble, and also ran 15 yards on a third-and-3 play.

  • Winovich among inactives

    The Patriots have a couple of relative surprises on their list of inactive players. Linebacker Chase Winovich and defensive tackle Carl Davis are out tonight. Davis had played in all 17 regular season games with four starts, while Winovich played in 13.

    The Patriots elevated four practice squad players to the active roster for the game, but only one in the defensive front-seven: defensive tackle Daniel Ekuale. They also elevated defensive backs D’Angelo Ross and De’Vante Bausby, and wide receiver Kristian Wilkerson.

    The rest of the Patriots’ inactives are no surprise: OL Isaiah Wynn, TE Devin Asiasi, QB Jarrett Stidham, and RB J.J. Taylor. Wynn was ruled out for the game on Friday.

    Full inactives for both teams below.

  • Scenes from the stadium

    The Patriots took the field at Highmark Stadium for early warmups, and they are predictably bundled up. Except for center David Andrews.
