4. Buffalo Bills at Kansas City Chiefs
Playoff rematches are always a ton of fun and this AFC Championship Game rematch between the Bills and Chiefs will be very important. Kansas City swept both meetings with the Bills a year ago, winning once in Buffalo during the regular season and again at Arrowhead Stadium in the playoffs.
The latter game will go down in infamy for Bills’ fans, who are still upset at how conservatively head coach Sean McDermott approached the contest. Despite playing aggressively all year long, McDermott opted to settle for field goals at critical junctures in the contest, putting Buffalo in a hole it could never dig out of.
The rematch this season comes at Arrowhead Stadium and is critical for Buffalo since losing to the Chiefs for the third time in a calendar year could have a negative impact on the Bills’ psyche. This game also figures to be highly competitive since Buffalo has the type of roster on paper that should give Kansas City fits if they’re on their game.
Seeing the quarterback duel between Allen and Mahomes will also be worth the price of admission since both men should be in the NFL MVP conversation this season. The league has wisely spotlighted this game that could determine home-field advantage throughout the playoffs so you should make it a point to watch Bills-Chiefs too.
