Buffalo’s Perfect Game
What we saw from the Bills last week, once they dismantled the Patriots in the Wild Card round, 47-17, was astonishing. Each of the Bills’ possessions ended with scoring, and after a while, we’ve seen Bill Belichick demolished and humiliated in one big game.
Josh Allen threw five touchdown passes, not completing only four of his 25 throws, for 308 yards. He ran for 66 more. Devin Singletary had two rushing TDs, while Dawson Knox caught two TDs.
We need to mention the defense once again showed its class. Many forgot that the Bills have maybe the best defensive team in the entire NFL, focusing on Allen and Diggs and not giving enough credit to the rest of the crew. They’ve forced two turnovers and froze Mac Jones early on, killing his morale.
Mahomes Flexing vs Steelers
The Chiefs had an equally impressive display against the Steelers, creating a propper farewell party for Ben Roethlisberger. The result was 42-21 for KC, who significantly slowed down in the final period, not wanting to humiliate the two-time NFL champion.
The former NFL MVP, Mahomes, had 404 yards with five touchdown passes and one pick. He pretty much equally distributed the action, throwing scoring passes to Kelce, McKinnon, Hill, Allegretti, and Pringle.
The defense was solid, as it allowed only 56 yards on the ground and 257 yards in total to the Steelers. They also forced one turnover and sacked Big Ben twice. In general, all parts of the Chiefs’ team were at the highest possible level.
Head to Head Games – Chiefs Better When Important
This is the third time in the last two years for the Bills and Chiefs to meet. KC has two wins, among them one in the last year’s AFC Championship game, 38-24.
However, the Bills already visited the Arrowhead this year, trouncing the Chiefs 38-20, midway through October.
