Has Buffalo closed the gap on the Chiefs?
The Bills knew they would see the Chiefs again in the postseason, and now, Buffalo has a shot at redemption following last year’s 38-20 setback vs. Kansas City in the AFC Championship. Among the keys for the Bills to emerge victorious: how will their wide receivers deal with Kansas City’s “sticky” press coverage, can Buffalo’s league-leading defense find a way to neutralize Patrick Mahomes, Tyreek Hill, and Travis Kelce, and can Josh Allen protect the football and not let the moment get too big for him?
We also discuss how both of these teams love to run trick/gadget plays, hear from Allen on his quarterback rivalry with Mahomes, get the latest injury news for both teams, and find out why rookie edge rusher Greg Rousseau is excited to return to Arrowhead.
