Buffalo Bills will travel to Kansas City to play Chiefs in AFC Championship Game

It’s chalk in the AFC Championship.

Matt Warren is Associate Director of NFL coverage for SB Nation and previously covered the Bills for Buffalo Rumblings for more than a decade.

Folks have been clamoring for it for weeks and it’s finally happening. The Buffalo Bills and the Kansas City Chiefs will play each other for the right to go to the Super Bowl in next weekend’s AFC Championship. The game is scheduled for 6:40 p.m. EST.

The Bills lost to the Chiefs earlier in the season, when Buffalo didn’t let Patrick Mahomes beat them and instead allowed a truckload of rushing yards. The QB passed for just 225 yards but the run game totaled 245 yards as the Chiefs defeated the Bills 26-17.

Bills head coach Sean McDermott cut his teeth under Chiefs head coach Andy Reid, and it’s sure to be another storyline heading into this weekend’s game. McDermott broke into the league and worked his way up to defensive coordinator with Reid and the Philadelphia Eagles.

The biggest question now, is whether or not Patrick Mahomes will play. He left Kansas City’s Divisional Round game against the Cleveland Browns with a concussion.
