Why was New England Patriots blocking receiver N’Keal Harry back returning punts in a weather-impacted environment on “Monday Night Football?”
That, essentially, was the reaction from fans all over New England as the third-year wideout was back to return his first punt of the season — and first of his career. It went as smoothly as you may expect, hitting Harry’s helmet as he muffed the punt.
It allowed the Bills to recover at the New England 14 yard line and flip the momentum of the game with a touchdown on the next play.
Those on social media all had a very similar reaction:
Bills quarterback Josh Allen hit Gabriel Davis for a 14-yard touchdown reception on the next play from scrimmage to cut Buffalo’s deficit to 8-7 with two minutes remaining in the first quarter.
