Buffalo Bills to travel to Kansas City to face Chiefs in AFC Championship
The Buffalo Bills knew last night they would be heading to the AFC Championship Game after their 17-3 victory over the Baltimore Ravens. However, they had to wait until today to find out who, and where, they would be playing.
After the Kansas City Chiefs held onto a 22-17 win over the Cleveland Browns the Bills now know they will be traveling on the road for the first time this postseason to face the Chiefs next Sunday.
This will be a matchup between the number one and number two seed of the AFC and will be the Bills third game these playoffs after beating the Indianapolis Colts before their win over the Ravens. However, the Chiefs had a bye in the first round so they will be playing their second game.
For the Kansas City Chiefs, this is not unfamiliar territory as they will be hosting their third straight AFC Championship Game. In 2018, the Chiefs lost to the New England Patriots in overtime but last year won over the Tennessee Titans and would go on to win the Super Bowl over the San Francisco 49ers.
However, for the Buffalo Bills it has been a while since they have been playing in the AFC Championship Game. The last time they were playing in this game was in 1994 when they actually played the Kansas City Chiefs in a matchup of two Hall of Famers: Joe Montana and Jim Kelly.
More recently, the two teams did face each other back in Week 6 of this season. In that game, the Chiefs had plenty of success on the ground with 245 rushing yards as the Chiefs went on to win 26-17 over the Buffalo Bills.
The Buffalo Bills and Kansas City Chiefs will be the last game on Sunday with a kickoff time set for 6:40. The game will be televised on CBS.
