Buffalo looks to overcome another trauma
Stop if you’ve heard this one before, the Buffalo Bills had an excruciating playoff last season. The Bills will get a chance to exact some revenge on the Kansas City Chiefs on the road in a late afternoon game. Buffalo has been knocked out of the playoffs the last two seasons by Kansas City.
What made last year’s loss so tough was the Bills overcoming a late deficit to take a three-point lead with 13 seconds remaining. Kansas City would get into field goal range and win in overtime on a Travis Kelce touchdown. Both teams will be eager to use the game as a measuring stick.
