no. 2 seeded Buffalo Bills vs. no. 1 Kansas City Chiefs
Most expected a tight game between Buffalo and the Baltimore Ravens in the Divisional Rund, but the home side won the game. The Bills took a 17-3 win and played a spectacular defense along the way. Josh Allen didn’t put in his usual showy numbers, throwing just 206 yards and a score, but he and Stefon Diggs clicked their way to victory as usual. People shouldn’t expect much of a rush from Buffalo, as Devin Singletary scored just 25 yards on seven carries in the Bills’ first playoff game without Zack Moss. Can Buffalo beat the Chiefs to reach the Super Bowl for the first time since 1993?
The crowds expected Kansas City to beat the Cleveland Browns by a significant margin in the Divisional Round, but the defending champion finally managed to beep by. Kansas City ran at full throttle for most of the game, but the tide started to turn when Patrick Mahomes left the game in the third quarter with a concussion. Chad Henne was enough to push the home team to a win, but franchise quarterback status for the AFC Championship could be up in the air. Will the Chiefs have enough firepower to get past the Bills without their Field General below the middle?
