The Buffalo Bills will get another shot to get one step closer to the AFC Championship title. Last week, Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills looked sharp scoring on seven straight scoring drives to blow out the New England Patriots and Bill Belichick.
This week the Bills will have to go on the road. They are going to have to travel to Kansas City to play the Chiefs at Arrowhead. The image above was from the AFC Championship last year, when Stefon Diggs and the Bills fell short to the Chiefs. That picture alone should be enough to piss off the Bills and Diggs, but can they pull off the win?
In a rematch of last season’s AFC Championship Game, which K.C. won 38-24, but it will not be easy for either team. Both teams are on fire right now. Josh Allen and Mahomes each threw five pass TDs in their 2021 wild-card games (Allen: 308 pass yards, 5 pass TDs, 0 INT, 66 rush yds; Mahomes: 404 pass yards, 5 pass TDs, 1 INT, 29 rush yds.
Caesars Sportsbook is now live in New York, and they have the Bills +2.5 points against the Chiefs this weekend.
If the Bills want to win, they are going to need Josh Allen to play at a high level and their defense is going to need to apply pressure to Mahomes. It seems whatever team makes the most mistakes usually loses. The Bills will have some distractions. The teams Assistant General Manager Joe Schoen has interviewed twice with the Giants to become their General Manager and there are rumors floating out there that Brian Daboll could be the head coach choice for Shoen.
If that is the case, the Bills offense that was amazing last week will need their offensive coordinator to remain focused to get the Bills past the Chiefs.
Last year, when the Chiefs rallied past the Bills, the Chiefs were able to beat the Bills twice. This year, the Bills beat the Chiefs 38-20 in Arrowhead, so the Chiefs can be beat, but can the Bills pull it off again?
If the Bills can get by the Chiefs, they could have a great shot at the Super Bowl.
