ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — Josh Allen set a franchise record by throwing five touchdowns passes and the Buffalo Bills showed who's king of the AFC East Division with a 47-17 throttling of the New England Patriots in a wild-card playoff game Saturday night.

Dawson Knox caught two touchdown passes and Devin Singletary ran for two scores in the first half.

Buffalo scored on all seven possessions of the game, which didn't end with a kneeldown.

The Bills defeated New England for the second time in three weeks and rebounded from a 14-10 home loss to the Patriots on Dec. 6.

The game was the fourth-coldest in Bills history with game-time temperature of 7 degrees.
