On the latest episode of the Billieve Podcast, hosts John Boccacino and Jamie D’Amico recap the Buffalo Bills’ season-ending loss against the reigning Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship game—Buffalo’s first appearance in the AFC title game since the 1993 season.

They discuss why, despite the setback, Bills fans should celebrate what the team accomplished this year, a season where the Bills tied franchise marks for most wins in a season while scoring the most points in a season in franchise history and winning two home playoff games.

Reflecting on the loss to the Chiefs, Boccacino and D’Amico highlight:

  • How Kansas City was able to shut down Josh Allen and Buffalo’s high-octane offense;
  • How the offensive line was manhandled by the Chiefs;
  • How Josh Allen was confused by the different looks the Chiefs threw at him;
  • How Buffalo’s talented wide receivers were unable to create any separation;
  • How the defensive line once again underwhelmed;
  • How Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs’ offense exposed Buffalo’s defensive weaknesses;
  • Discuss the talent gap between the two clubs;
  • Speculate on what the Bills need to do this offseason to close that talent gap;
  • Provide their main takeaways from year-ending press conferences by general manager Brandon Beane and head coach Sean McDermott; and much more.
