Poyer’s first reaction wasn’t about beating the Patriots. It was about shoving the win into sports columnist Jerry Sullivan’s face.
"Where that Jerry Sullivan at? What the f—k’s he got to say?" Poyer was heard yelling on the way back to the locker room, according to The Athletic.
Poyer had three tackles and a tackle for a loss in the win.
Sullivan saw the tweet and reminded his followers he doesn’t travel for Bills road games.
"I guess he hasn't noticed that I haven't covered a road game since 2017. Bruce Smith did the same thing once. I've been called out by Hall of Famers. Glad to see he cares that much. He's lucky he has Allen on his side," he tweeted.
Earlier in the season, the Bills lost to the Patriots 14-10. Mac Jones only threw three passes as the Patriots dominated the run game in the wind and the snow that plagued the area. Sullivan asked Poyer and Micah Hyde if they were "embarrassed" after allowing 222 rushing yards in their Dec. 6 game.
"I mean, what kind of question is that?" Poyer said as Hyde replied: "Bro, what are we doing?"
Both players then pointed to the final score to show Buffalo’s ability to limit the Patriots to just 14 points.
"We made stops when we had to. They had one big run. I mean they got good [running backs]," Poyer said. "I mean, I don’t know how you want us to answer that question."
Silence filled the room before Hyde said: "That’s funny, we’ll remember that."
