The New England Patriots traveled to Buffalo for their first meeting against the Bills with an opportunity to hold onto first place in the AFC heading into their bye week.

Heading into the game, the weather elements were expected to play a big role as windy conditions with gusts over 50mph were expected to cause havoc on the passing game for both teams.

Check out all the best postings shared across social media before, during, and after the “Monday Night Football” matchup below.

In the first quarter, the Patriots struck first when running back Damien Harris broke loose for a 64 yard touchdown run for the game’s first points.

Leading 8-0 following a two-point conversion, a miscue on a punt return by N’Keal Harry gave the Bills the ball in the red zone for the first time and Josh Allen capitalized on the mistake with a 14 yard touchdown toss to Gabriel Davis to bring the home team within one at 8-7 after a quarter.

Looking for points back, kicker Nick Folk showed no fear of the windy conditions as the Patriots extended their lead up to four following this field goal in the second quarter.

Heading into the locker room at halftime the Patriots found themselves leading the Bills 11-7 despite just a single passing attempt by Mac Jones and every other offensive play a run.

During the third quarter, the Bills trimmed their deficit to one, but the Patriot’s defense continued to stifle the Josh Allen-led offense.

With one quarter remaining, the Patriots kept pounding the football on the ground as Mac Jones added just two more pass attempts the rest of the way.

The Bills defense remained unable to find an answer despite knowing the Patriots game plan.

A Nick Folk 34 yard field Goal goal extended the Patriots lead to four at 14-10 while the Bills fell victim to the wind on their own attempt a drive later.

Despite all of the Bills struggles on this night, with two minutes remaining in the game, they had a chance to score the go-ahead touchdown but were once again denied by the Patriots defense to seal the road victory.

The Patriots would defeat the Bills by a final score of 14-10 to extend their winning streak to seven while remaining undefeated on the road in 2021 and ensuring the top playoff seed in the AFC belongs to them.

A bye week is next for the Patriots before a trip to Indianapolis to take on the Colts on December 18th.
