Wide Receivers/Tight Ends

It was a historic performance from Gabriel Davis who seemed to be open on every play as he finished with eight receptions, 201 receiving yards, and four touchdowns, which was a playoff record. Another player who made some big plays in the game was Cole Beasley who finished second on the team in receptions (6) and receiving yards (60).

However, the two players who had been the biggest parts of this offense, Stefon Diggs and Dawson Knox, were quiet as these two combined for only five receptions and 16 receiving yards. The Chiefs could have come into this game with the plan of forcing someone else to beat them but these are two players that need more targets and need to be bigger parts of the offense.

Grade: B+

Offensive Line

While the Kansas City Chiefs got more pressure in this game, most notably Melvin Ingram III, the offensive line did a good job in terms of giving Josh Allen the time needed to make plays for this offense.

The Buffalo Bills were forced to make changes during the season due to injuries and players being unavailable but they found a group towards the end of the season that included Ryan Bates that really helped this offense and they played well on Sunday night.

Grade: B+
