Buffalo Bills punter Matt Haack had a chill Sunday in the 33-21 win against the New England Patriots, not having to punt a single time.
Haack celebrated his quiet day at the office with a photo with quarterback Josh Allen, who completed 30 of his 47 passes for 314 yards and three touchdowns – the main reason Haack’s services were not needed.
