KANSAS CITY, Mo. — We could be looking at another AFC playoff preview as the Kansas City Chiefs are set to host the Buffalo Bills Sunday.
The Chiefs beat the Bills in the divisional round last season, 42-36, winning the game in overtime after QB Patrick Mahomes only needed 13 seconds to lead the Chiefs down the field to tie things up with a field goal in the 4th quarter.
The Chiefs have beaten the Bills in three of their last four matchups. That one loss came during the 2021 season as well in week 5 where Kansas City lost 38-20.
