The Buffalo Bills exorcised some demons in Kansas City on Sunday, beating the Chiefs in a game that came down to the final minute.
It’ll take more than a regular-season win to truly erase the trauma of the Bills‘ overtime loss to the Chiefs in last season’s AFC Divisional Playoff game. But a regular-season win in Kansas City sure does dull the pain.
Buffalo faced the Chiefs for the first time since that playoff loss on Sunday and came away with a hard-fought 24-20 victory.
It was a triumph for Josh Allen and company, scoring the winning touchdown with just over a minute to play. Then the Bills defense got redemption by forcing a Patrick Mahomes interception to seal the win.

The Bills were in for a ton of praise for their performance on the road against their playoff nemesis.
Chiefs fans had some processing to do.
Patrick Mahomes threw for 338 yards and two touchdowns but he also tossed two interceptions and took three sacks.
Josh Allen had 329 yards and three touchdowns. The one sack he took was a controversial one, as Chris Jones appeared to trip the quarterback.
The Bills are sitting atop the AFC standings and most observers expect Buffalo and Kansas City to meet again in the postseason. Since this was their only scheduled regular-season meeting, both sides will have to follow through to ensure another epic rematch arrives. Then KC will get the chance to avenge this loss while Buffalo will have their opportunity to exorcise the playoff demons as well.
