Buffalo Bills fall to the Kansas City Chiefs by a final score of 38-24
The Buffalo Bills haven’t played in the AFC Championship Game since 1994 and that game also played the Kansas City Chiefs, which they won 30-13.
However, this time around the Bills weren’t able to come away with the win as their season ends with a 38-24 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.
The Bills were able to get off to a fast start with a 10 play, 42-yard drive that ended with a field goal to give them a 3-0 lead. The two teams traded punts but the first big play came on the Bills punt when Mecole Hardman fumbled the punt that set the Bills up inside the five.
It took one play for them to convert as Josh Allen found Dawson Knox for a three-yard touchdown reception. However, Tyler Bass missed the extra point giving the Bills a 9-0 lead.
From that play though it was seemingly all Kansas City Chiefs as they would outscore the Bills 38-6. That punt on the opening drive would be the last punt the Chiefs had all game.
The Buffalo Bills did try to close the gap in the fourth quarter with Josh Allen finding Isaiah McKenzie in the end zone to cut the lead to 38-21. The Bills attempted an onside kick, which they recovered and drove down the field due in large part to 34-yard reception by Stefon Diggs.
However, an 18-yard sack by Josh Allen pushed the Bills back and forced them to settle for another field goal, which was Tyler Bass’ fourth of the game. The Buffalo Bills attempted a second onside kick but were not able to recover it.
While the season didn’t end many would have liked, it was still an impressive season that included 15 wins, including the postseason. It also included an AFC East division title, which was the first one since 1995.
