The Buffalo Bills tie the game up right before halftime with a touchdown pass from Josh Allen to Gabriel Davis

The AFC Divisional Round matchup between the Buffalo Bills and Kansas City Chiefs has certainly lived up to the hype as both teams have gone back and forth in the first half. The Bills opened the scoring on their first drive of the game that ended with a rushing touchdown by Devin Singletary.

The Chiefs answered right back with a long drive to tie it up on a Patrick Mahomes run for a touchdown. However, it was Kansas City that would break that tie on a third down completion by Patrick Mahomes to Byron Pringle to give the Chiefs a 14-7 lead with just under two minutes left in the half.

Josh Allen leads the Buffalo Bills down the field to tie the game up

This was enough time for Josh Allen to march the offense 75 yards down the field on seven plays. That seventh play would end up being an 18-yard touchdown reception by Gabriel Davis, who got open after two Chiefs defenders ran into each other.

While it was a great touchdown, Josh Allen looked excellent leading up to that play. He started the drive with a 24-yard completion to Cole Beasley and found Beasley again two plays later for a seven-yard completion.

A five-yard completion to Gabriel Davis gave the Bills a new set of downs and Allen took over with his legs with runs of 11 and nine yards. Those two plays set up Allen to throw the touchdown pass with 37 seconds left in the half.
