Buffalo scored a touchdown on all seven of its possessions outside of a kneel-down at the end of the game, becoming the first team in the Super Bowl era to score a TD on each of its first seven drives of a playoff game, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.The Bills also became the first team in NFL history to go an entire playoff game without a punt, field goal or turnover."It's not often in coaching you can enjoy the last six minutes of a game and kind of look up in the stands and see the fans enjoying it and at home," coach Sean McDermott said. He finished with the fifth-highest passer rating in a postseason game in NFL history (157.6) and more touchdowns than incompletions."I think that just kind of speaks for itself," tight end Dawson Knox said.Allen became the third player in the Super Bowl era with at least 150 pass yards and 50 rush yards in a single half of a playoff game, per Elias, and he joined Drew Brees (2009) and Russell Wilson (2020) as the only quarterbacks to throw for five touchdowns against a Belichick-coached team.His performance included two touchdown passes to Knox and one to wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders, whose score was his first TD in the postseason, coming in his 14th career playoff game with his fifth different team.Allen's fifth touchdown was a 1-yard throw to reserve offensive lineman Tommy Doyle. The Patriots were never able to establish the run thanks to Buffalo's offensive dominance."For our offense to go out there right away and put up points and put up points again and put up points again and then put up points, I mean, that's great for us and made them one-dimensional," defensive tackle Harrison Phillips said.The Bills will now head to the divisional round of the playoffs for a second straight season with a perfect record in home playoff games under McDermott.With a Chiefs' win on Sunday night, the Bills would travel to Kansas City, the site of Buffalo's 2021 AFC Championship Game loss.Buffalo is 0-3 in road playoff games since McDermott became head coach.With a Pittsburgh Steelers' win at Kansas City, however, the Bills would host the Cincinnati Bengals next week.When you're going into every game with a win-or-go-home mentality, and that's really what we've had in the last few weeks, just the attention to detail in practice, guys are more attentive," Allen said.
