Update:Bills suffer one of most gut-wrenching losses in history in OT to Chiefs
KANSAS CITY - Not that they needed a shred more of motivation to win Sunday’s AFC divisional round playoff showdown, the Buffalo Bills and Kansas City Chiefs do indeed have some.
Thanks to the Cincinnati Bengals last-play 19-16 victory over the top-seeded Tennessee Titans Saturday afternoon, the winner of the Bills-Chiefs game at Arrowhead Stadium will get to host next Sunday’s AFC Championship Game.
As the No. 2 seed, Kansas City was always going to be in position to host so long as it won its games and the Titans lost. However, the Bills are in position because they caught a nice break in Week 18 of the regular season.
They started that Jan. 9 day tied with the Bengals in the AFC standings at 10-6, but while they hadn’t yet locked up the AFC East division title and needed to beat the Jets, Cincinnati had already won the AFC North.
Because of that, Bengals coach Zac Taylor decided to sit some of his stars, most notably quarterback Joe Burrow, in their final game against the Browns and Cleveland won 21-16.
Had the Bengals won, they would have grabbed the No. 3 seed that went to Buffalo, and therefore, a Bills win Sunday would have sent them to Cincinnati next week instead of home to Highmark Stadium.
OK, we’re getting a little ahead of ourselves, though. There’s the matter of the showdown at Arrowhead to get past first.
Stay locked in to this page all day for updates from myself and Ryan Miller.
The Bills took the lead with 13 seconds left in regulation and still lost. Kansas City tied the game on field goal at the end of regulation Josh Allen didn't touch the ball in overtime. The Chiefs marched 75 yards for the game winning Patrick Mahomes to Travis Kelce touchdown.
There were three lead changes, one tie and 25 points in the final two minutes of regulation.
Allen completed 27 of 37 passes for 329 yards and two touchdowns, including two in the final two minutes of the fourth quarter. Gabriel Davis finished with eight catches for 201 yards and four tochdowns but Stefon Diggs was nearly invisible with three receptions for 7 yards.
Patrick Mahomes was 33 of 44 for 378 yards and two touchdowns and led Kansas City with 69 yards and a touchdown on the ground. Tyreek Hill had 11 catches for 150 yards and a TD.
Josh Allen finished the postseason with nine touchdown passes and no turnovers.
That was one of the greatest games in NFL history. Kansas City won the coin toss and didn't give the Bills' offense a chance to take the field. Patrick Mahomes led the Chiefs 75 yardfs and connected with Travis Kelce for the game-winning 8-yard touchdown pass.
Kansas City had the ball with 13 seconds and were able to get into field goal range. Patrick Mahomes completed to Tyreek Hill for 19 yards and then found Travis Kelce over the middle for 25 yards to set up Harrison Butker's 49-yard field goal as time expired.
There were 25 points scored in the final two minutes of regulation.
The Bills did it again. Buffalo marched 75 yards in 49 seconds to take the lead. Josh Allen found Gabiel Davis for 19 yards for their fourth touchdown connection of the game.
It's the first four touchdown reception game in NFL playoff history.
Kansas City had an incredible answer. Patrick Mahomes threw a 64-yard touchdown pass to Tyreek Hill, who caught the ball at midfield and then outran everyone along the right sideline for the score.
Buffalo will need to drive 75 yards with all three timeouts to win the game.
Buffalo had the ball with a chance to take the lead. Josh Allen started the drive with an 8-yard completion to Cole Beasley. Allen converted a third-down with another pass to Beasley and on third-and-4, lowered his shoulder for 9 yards on a quarterback draw. Allen ran overCharvarius Ward, who was injured on the play.
Allen ran for 3 yards on third-and-1 for another first down to get to the Chiefs' 36 and then made another fantastic play to avoid the Kansas City defense. On fourth-and-4 from the Chiefs' 30, Allen avoided diving defenders, couldn'tfind anyone open and used a pump fake extend the play and get around defenders for a 6-yard run and first down.
Allen capped the 18-play drive with a 27-yard toucdown pass to a wide-open Gabriel Davis on fourth-and-13. It's Buffalo's longest fourth-down conversion in five years. Allen bought time with his legs before hitting Stefon Diggs in the back of the end zone for the two-point conversion.
Kansas City couldn't extend its lead to two scores after the long punt return by Tyreek Hill.Jerick McKinnon had three straight carries, including a 3-yard loss after the Chiefs got cute on third down. Tight end Blake Bell took a direct snap and pitched it on the option to McKinnon but cornerback Dane Jackson had a huge tackle for loss. Harrison Butker made a 28-yard field goal.
Josh Allen threw a 17-yard strike to Gabriel Davis on first down but the Bills couldn't pick up another first down. Gabriel Davis also made an incredible diving catch on second-and-15 but was out of bounds. Allen was sacked by defensive tackle Jarran Reed on third down. There were offsetting penalties on Matt Haack's punt and it cost the Bills. Haack's second attempt went 46 yards but Tyreek Hill returned it 45 yards to the Bills' 16-yard line.
The tide could be turning. Kansas City led 23-14 late in the third quarter befire the Bills unleashed a 75-yard touchdown pass. The Chiefs couldn't asnwer. Kansas City gained two first downs before throwing incomplete on third-and-5. Tommy Townsend punted 38 yards to the Bills' 8-yard line.
Well, that’s one way to get back into the game.
Brian Daboll, instead of calling pass plays to Reggie Gilliam and runs to Isaiah McKenzie, dialed up a deep shot and Josh Allen threw a gorgeous 75-yard TD to Gabriel Davis on the first play after the kickoff.
Allen is now 17 of 20 for 195 yards and two TDs. Imagine if Daboll would actually start letting him throw more.
Things are starting to fall apart for the Bills as the Chiefs have extended their lead to 23-14 as Mecole Hardman burned around the left end for a 25-yard touchdown run, a play on which the Bills looked fooled and listless.
Harrison Butker missed the extra point, but right now, if the Bills’ offense doesn’t wake up after a terrible first possession in the third quarter, the Chiefs are on the brink of putting a hammerlock on the game.
The Bills have had no answers for Patrick Mahomes for most of the night and now the Chiefs are starting to get their running game heavily involved.
The Bills offense opened the half with a punt. Josh Allen completed to fullback Reggie Gilliam for 7 yards but Devin Singletary only gained 1 yard on a run and an outside run by Isaiah McKenzie picked up 1 yard. Matt Haack punted 42 yards andMike Hughes returned it 15 yards to the Chiefs' 39-yard line.
In the end, the Bills defense finally stood up and forced the Chiefs to settle for a 39-yard field goal by Harrison Butker which culminated a 13-play, 54-yard drive.
Patrick Mahomes converted one third down and then threw a 20-yard pass to Jerick McKinnon to convert a fourth-and-1 that put the ball at the 20.
However, a holding penalty on Kansas City’s Andrew Wylie short-circuited the possession and the Bills were able to get off the field on third-and-18.
Kansas City had a chance to take the lead going into the half. The Chiefs had the ball with 37 seconds left and drove 38 yards to the Bills' 32-yard line.Harrison Butker missed a 50-yard field goal as time expired.
Josh Allen has completed 15 of 18 passes for 113 yards and a touchdown and has a team-high 45 yards rushing. Patrick Mahomes is 13 of 19 for 114 yards and a touchdown along with a rushing touchdown.
Josh Allen just put together quite an answer to the Patrick Mahomes touchdown as he drove the Bills 75 yards in seven lightning-quick plays, hitting Gabriel Davis with an 18-yard touchdown pass.
Allen started the march with a laser of a 24-yard pass to Cole Beasley, and later ripped off big runs on QB keepers of 9 and 11 yards on back-to-back plays.
A stupid defensive holding call on Dane Jackson, one that was completely unnecessary to take, cost the Bills four points and has put them in a 14-7 hole.
Buffalo had the Chiefs stopped on third down from the 11 when they sacked Mahomes, but out came the flag as Jackson was clearly caught holding onto the jersey of Tyreek Hill.
Naturally, the Chiefs made the Bills pay and it was Mahomes making another amazing play for the touchdown as he escaped pressure - a common theme all night - and found Byron Pringle for a two-yard TD.
Mahomes drove the Chiefs 86 yards in 12 plays after the Chiefs had forced a second consecutive Buffalo punt thanks to some shaky play-calling from Brian Daboll.
A game that started so well has started to go sideways for the Bills in the second quarter, just as it did last year in the AFC Championship Game.
Things have slowed down offensively. Kansas City went three-and-out andTommy Townsend punted 50 yards to the Bills' 43. Devin Singletary ran for 7 yards on first down but Buffalo went three-and-out and punted for the second straight time. The Chiefs take over at their 14-yard line.
Buffalo's touchdown and puntless streak is over. Josh Allen was sacked by Melvin Ingram on third down to force a Bills punt. The ball came loose on the sack but popped back into Allen's arms to avoid a potential turnover. Matt Haack, who didn't punt in Buffalo's wild-card win over the Patriots, delivered a 50-yard punt that was downed at the Chiefs' 1-yard line.
After watching Josh Allen march the Bills downfield to an opening touchdown, Patrick Mahomes came out and did the same thing.
It wasn’t Mahomes’ arm that keyed the 11-play, 74-yard drive, it was his legs. The Bills did a great job covering Kansas City’s receivers, but Mahomes scrambled three times for 49 yards, one a 34-yarder on third down, and the last an eight-yarder on third-and-5.
The Bills are going to need to do something to prevent Mahomes from escaping or he’s going to be doing this all night because he’s just so difficult to get ahold of once he’s in space.
Never mind the kneel down at the end of last week’s blowout over the Patriots. The Bills scored touchdowns on all seven of their possessions, and now they’re 1-for-1 against the Chiefs.
They took the opening kickoff and drove 71 yards in 13 plays to Devin Singletary’s one-yard touchdown run which came on fourth-and-goal.
It was a huge first possession as Sean McDermott twice went for the first down on fourth down. On the first, Josh Allen ran 10 yards from midfield on fourth-and-2. On the second, the Bills had first-and-goal at the three and saw three plays fail, but McDermott went for the touchdown and Singletary got it thanks to a nice block on the outside by Gabriel Davis.
Buffalo got the ball first and Devin Singletary took a pass 13 yards on the first offensive play. Buffalo faced fourth-and-2 from midfield and went for it, with Josh Allen taking a designed run 10 yards.
After all the bad weather the Bills have played in, they were probably owed a day like this one in Kansas City. The day has been filled with sunshine, light wind, and a temperature that reached 40 degrees.
It is starting to cool off as we get closer to kickoff, but it will only bottom out in the low 30s, so both teams should be able to do whatever they want on offense.
The Bills inactive list is out and none of the names come as much of a surprise.
Defensive tackle Vernon Butler, running back Matt Breida, kick returner Marquez Stevenson, offensive lineman Bobby Hart, tight end Tommy Sweeney, and practice squad call-up defensive backs Nick McCloud and Josh Thomas.
With Butler down, the Bills are going with rookie Boogie Basham who had a sack last week against the Patriots. Also, with Stevenson not playing, it will probably mean Isaiah McKenzie will return kickoffs and Micah Hyde will be back deep for punts.
Efe Obada, who was inactive last week even though his ankle injury had healed, will be one of the nine Buffalo defensive linemen in the game.
For the Chiefs, the inactives are RB Darrel Williams, WR Josh Gordon, OT Prince Tega Wanogho, DE Josh Kaindoh, CB Rashad Fenton, and QB Shane Buechele.
With Williams out, the Chiefs do get RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire back for the game and he'll probably share the backfield with Jerick McKinnon.
Bills could find some success on the ground
One of the keys to Buffalo’s late-season surge and five-game winning streak has been the emergence of the running game led by Devin Singletary.
For the first three-quarters of the year the Bills could not get any consistency in their ground game unless it was Josh Allen making big plays leaving the pocket. But in the last six games the Bills have averaged 163.8 rushing yards and Singletary has produced 76.0 yards per game in that span while also scoring seven touchdowns.
“He’s one of those players each year he’s been here, he’s improved,” offensive coordinator Brian Daboll said. “And obviously we have given him the ball some here in the last quarter or a little bit more than that of the season. And he’s really taken advantage of his opportunities. He’s got a good skill set. We have a lot of trust and confidence in him.”
The Chiefs’ defense is playing better than it did when these teams met in Week 5, but lately, their run defense has given up chunks of yardage. Since Week 13, the Broncos ran for 154 and 191 yards, the Chargers had 192 and the Steeler ran for 130 in their regular-season meeting with Kansas City. Last week they managed just 56 in the wild-card game.
If the Bills can get Singletary humming early, it could really open up an offense that enters the game with all of its passing weapons fully healthy.

► Chiefs coach Andy Reid on pursuing another Super Bowl title: “If you like chocolate cake and you eat a piece, and then you have one dangling in front of your face, you’re probably going to want to eat that, too. Not much is going to stop you, so that’s how you feel about the Super Bowl. That is the chocolate cake with the ultimate frosting and you’re going to try to go get it if
you can, the best you can.”
► Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes on Tyreek Hill’s play: “It’s been incredible. The way he’s able to run routes in between coverages – I mean pretty much every coverage he has two people on him or two people kind of shadowing over the top of him and he’s still getting himself open, making tough catches over the middle of the field. He’s really evolved his game and at the end of the day, whenever he gets into those man coverage situations like he did this last
weekend, you can always hit him over the top for touchdowns.”
► Chiefs DE Melvin Ingram on Allen: “Man, he’s one of the elite quarterbacks in this league, and you’ve got to try to cancel out every phase. You’ve got to play assignment football because when you’ve got a quarterback that can run, that can throw, that can do everything, you’ve just got to play assignment football and not try to do too much.”
