Top Storylines To Watch for Chiefs vs. Bills

Kansas City and Buffalo have become intimately familiar with each other over the last few years with Patrick Mahomes and Josh Allen quarterbacking their respective squads.

The teams have now played seven times over the last four seasons since their first meeting with Mahomes and Allen at QB coming on Oct. 19, 2020. Their first three matchups were a tad lopsided with the Chiefs winning 26-17 and 38-24 in the first two and the Bills rolling to a 38-20 victory in the third.

However, A quartet of instant classics has since ensued, with their last four meetings all decided by six or fewer points.

Another Instant Classic To Ensue?

The teams’ now-heated rivalry met its first pivotal point during the 2021 season in the Divisional Round of the NFL playoffs.

Buffalo took a late lead in the game on a touchdown pass with just 13 seconds left in the fourth quarter, but Kansas City improbably tied things up and proceeded to win on the first possession of overtime, bringing about a rule change to give both teams a shot at scoring.

The Bills then repaid the favor in the 2022 regular season as Allen threw a late touchdown pass to Dawson Knox that sealed a 24-20 victory. Buffalo channeled that same magic in the 2023 regular season as a late field goal from Tyler Bass helped secure a 20-17 triumph.

Kansas City ultimately got the last laugh in the playoffs, though, as a touchdown early in the fourth quarter sealed its 27-24 victory in the Divisional Round bout on the way to winning it all.

Could yet another nail-biter be in store for this year’s regular-season meeting?
