The Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs are set to take place this weekend, and the best game will be played last. On Sunday night it will be the Kansas City Chiefs visiting the Buffalo Bills for what should be a terrific battle.
Kansas City was once again the champion of the AFC West Division, but they were not as dominant this season as in year’s past. The Chiefs did look great in the Wild Card Round after blowing out the Miami Dolphins.
Buffalo used a huge run to the end the season in order to get to the top of the AFC East Division. The Bills were able to pick up a comfortable win over the Pittsburgh Steelers in the Wild Card Round in order to get to this game.
Buffalo is coming into this game as a 2.5-point betting favorite, and home field advantage has impacted these betting lines.
Chiefs Getting Stops
The Kansas City Chiefs held the explosive Miami Dolphins to just seven points in the Wild Card Round, but that shouldn’t have been a surprise. Kansas City has been one of the best defensive teams in the league this season, and that’s even without getting much help from the offense.
This Chiefs defense is going to be coming after Josh Allen in this game, and they have had some success against him in the past. It is going to be up to Patrick Mahomes and the offense to find a way to set the tone on offense.
Mahomes threw for 262 yards and a touchdown in the Wild Card Round, and he always steps up in the biggest games.
Bills Riding Allen to Wins
Josh Allen has been playing extremely well for the Buffalo Bills this season, and he showed up in the playoffs as well. Allen threw for 203 yards and three touchdowns, and he also scored on a 52-yard rush.
This Buffalo team has been getting great production from many players on this roster, and that will need to continue to be the case in this game. Buffalo wants to put points on the board in a hurry, but you should expect them to run the ball in this matchup.
The Bills are going to have to find a way to get pressure on Mahomes in this matchup or it can be a long day. This has not been a great defensive team this season, but they have the tools to be one of the best in the league.
Chiefs Complete Upset Win
The Buffalo Bills have proven that they can win games in a number of different ways, but it’s going to take their defense in this game. Buffalo should get another great game from Josh Allen, but that’s not going to be enough to win this matchup.
Patrick Mahomes has a history of showing up and playing great in the postseason, and that is exactly how things will play out in this game as well. The Chiefs have been a dominant defense all season long, and that unit will take charge in this one.
This is going to be the best game of the entire weekend, but it’s going to be one that is won by the road team in upset fashion. Bet on the Kansas City Chiefs as they are going to beat the Buffalo Bills on Sunday night.
