Despite tonight's game this is NOT the KC offense that was scoring at will from 2018 to 2020. But they are better now than they were when we played them earlier this year, and we're now missing our best defensive player. And they'll have their best defensive player (Chris Jones) this time around. I'm still not really worried about their defense though, if our offense plays anywhere close to the level we saw last night we can put up 30+ points on anybody. The worst case scenario is something like our loss against the Titans where we move the ball but fail to convert TDs and KC eventually just outscores us. Mahomes didn't play very well in our first match. I'm not expecting that advantage again.

So it goes.

 

Both teams are equally matched up against each other.

 

It would suck to lose to this team again, but we just have to take whatever comes at us.

 

The Bills can beat any team out there. Last night they made a statement, and McDermott will continue to have them focused.

Isn’t it a bit inequitable to give the bengals/Titans winner 26 hours more rest for the championship game.

 

especially if it’s the Titans. They’re at home and if they win and Buffalo wins, Buffalo has to fly home from KC and probably get home around 1am Monday and have to fly to Tennessee.

 

There’s no better way really. Arizona/LA winner must be in one Sunday slot.  

 

KC shouldn’t really be slotted in 6 days later while Tennessee continues to sit and do nothing, plus Cinci played early Saturday. So it makes sense. if anything SF gets hosed having a short week to head to GB and more flying than anyone else.

IF Buffalo wins i’ll gladly accept the short week, the flight home is immediately after the game and they just chill.

How do you feel about this matchup?  It’s not the same KC team we beat earlier in the season.  But when you go back and watch Week 18 in Denver, they certainly look a lot more beatable than they did tonight 

It will be difficult. Just try find a way to play well ourselves and win

So, if we beat KC and Cincy can beat the Titans, the Bills could still host the AFC Championship game.

 

Bills/KC becoming a major AFC rivalry. Should be a great game!

 

Cincy should beat the titans imo.

Before the game, I was telling a group of friends that I really wanted Kansas City next week so that the Bills could exorcise  their demons. After the game, I realized those demons are quite sizable. This is going to be a fun matchup next Sunday night. Hopefully the good guys win and Pat Mahomes gets to go and hang out with Jackson and make TikTok videos on a beach.

I love what this team showed last night against the Pats and the statement that Allen and McDermott made vanquishing a past demon. They have proven me wrong and I actually am happy about that. BUT....KC is a different animal especially on their home field and this is a team that finished the season winning 10 of 11 including tonight with the only loss coming in the final minutes against another hot team on the road.

 

I still hate the fact that this team did what they needed to earlier in the season and won in KC when they were in early season figure it out mode which should have secured the home field advantage over them in such a high stakes game next week, but now they have to go do it again in much different circumstances and with Chris Jones back in the lineup and he was the single reason the Bills offense was destroyed last year.

 

Bottom line is Mahomes is truly showing he very well might be the next transcendent player in this league and I hate the idea of watching the Chiefs be in the SB almost every year like the Brady Pats and feeding the national media hype machine. And speaking of Brady that's the only QB to ever beat Mahomes in the postseason.

 

It's all there for the Bills next week as they face a true defining moment in their franchise history and if they can't beat the Chiefs when it actually matters in a postseason game (regardless of venue) they likely never will.

Put down the Patriots, Chiefs and then Bucs all in one off season. Sign me up for the super bowl champion Bills.

I don’t see much this season that shows Mahomes is better than Allen. I don’t think it’s all that close currently.

Ill take Josh any day over Mahomes or any other QB.

The version of the Bills that showed up last night will show up again next week against the Chiefs.  The Steelers had no business being in tonight's game, and KC's performance has no impact on what I think about them in their matchup next week against the Bills - I think of seeing a soft Chiefs team the last game against Denver.  The Bills will win next week, and they're going to go to the Super Bowl.

In watching Mahomes, I do agree with those that state he is an excellent player and a top four quarterback right now. But, he executes one of the most inventive offensive schemes to ever be put on an NFL field. There’s a lot of stuff in that offense that other quarterbacks could do, but they don’t have a coach telling them to do it. But, that doesn’t really speak to increasing confidence going into this game. It’s just saying that I think Allen is more of a unicorn than Mahomes.
