Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills erased any doubt of who now rules the AFC East.
Allen set a team playoff record with five touchdown passes, including two to Dawson Knox, and Devin Singletary ran for two scores in the first half of a 47-17 throttling of the division rival New England Patriots in a wild-card playoff game Saturday night.
Allen finished 21 of 25 for 308 yards in a game the Bills scored a touchdown on each of their seven possessions.
The Bills beat the Patriots for a second time in three weeks and rebounded from an embarrassing 14-10 loss at home on Dec. 6 in which the Patriots attempted just three passes while finishing with 222 yards rushing to counter the blustery conditions. The weather conditions Saturday was no walk in the park. The winds were relatively calm, the Bills were hot in frigid conditions with a game-time temperature of 7 degrees.
The margin of defeat was the largest in the playoffs for the Patriots in coach Bill Belichick’s tenure, which began in 2000.
DC AG Karl Racine is filing a civil lawsuit against the Washington Commanders, owner Dan Snyder, the National Football League and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell stating they collectively lied about allegations of a hostile work environment and workplace harassment and that Snyder was not only aware of those issues, but "encouraged and participated" in it. Racine gave us a few quotes: "We're standing up for DC residents who were repeatedly lied to and deceived" "The Attorney General's office reviewed thousand of internal documents and emails uncovering clear wrongdoing of D.C. residents and their consumer rights" Its safe to say D.C. is no longer putting up with Dan Snyder and Roger Goodell's sh*t. Good for them.
Dwight Howard just signed a deal with the Taoyuan Leopards of the T1 league in Taiwan. Basketball in Taiwan is a very popular and Howard is just one of many US and European Stars playing in the league. The Leopards are one of the 6 teams in the league. Good Luck to Dwight this season.

"We care about him deeply. You know, we want to see him be at his best, and, you know, unfortunately it won't be with our team." Sunday'
