During Sunday’s huge AFC showdown between the Buffalo Bills and the Kansas City Chiefs, Kansas City’s final drive of regulation took 13 seconds—exactly the same drive time as last year’s end of regulation drive that set up a game-tying field goal. But in this year’s clash, 13 seconds doesn’t carry the same painful memories, as Von Miller pressured Patrick Mahomes, leading to Taron Johnson’s game-clinching interception.
Today’s edition of Buffalo Rumblinks leads off by recapping the good, the bad, and the ugly from Buffalo’s 24-20 triumph in Kansas City.
