Cartoonist draws Josh Allen digging the Patriots' grave following AFC East berth

By , Audacy

The New England Patriots entered Sunday not yet eliminated from the playoffs, but Buffalo Bills fans could not help but start digging their division rival’s graves.

The Bills won the AFC East on Saturday with a 48-19 win over the Denver Broncos – ending a 25-year drought for the Bills as champions of the division. It also ended an 11-year run the Patriots had on the division, while Buffalo became just the second team in the last 17 years to win the division.

With Josh Allen playing at an elite level and a strong Bills defense, the future is bright in Buffalo, while the Patriots dynasty may finally be dead for good.

At least Bills fans seem to think so.

Following Saturday’s win, Adam Zyglis – a cartoonist for The Buffalo News – drew a photo of Allen literally digging the Patriots’ grave for their 20-year stretch of dominance over the division. Of course, the drawing makes an appropriate mention of “Diggs” – Bills wide receiver Stefon Diggs, who had 11 catches for 147 yards on Saturday.

Patriots fans may feel this could be a bit premature. As long as Bill Belichick is at the helm, the Patriots should always be considered a contender for the AFC East.

But the Bills have not won the division since the Clinton administration (1995, to be precise), and have watched New England dominate them and the NFL for far too long to let this opportunity go by in basking in their demise while celebrating their own achievement as well.
