The Buffalo Bills and Kansas City Chiefs are getting ready for round three of their playoff battles, after defeating the Steelers and Dolphins, respectively, in the Wildcard round. The Chiefs won the first two, including the epic 13-second game. Despite the Bills being on the losing end of that game, it remains one of the greatest games in NFL history. This weekend, the two teams renew their rivalry, which will be the seventh meeting between the two teams in the last four seasons.
The Bills will be hosting this time though, which will be Patrick Mahomes' first true road playoff game. It's only fitting it's the Bills, given the history that has developed between these two teams and the rivalry that has grown between Josh Allen and Mahomes. The Bills have won three of the last five games between these two; however, all three wins were in the regular season. Buffalo has struggled to get past the Chiefs in the playoffs. Could this be the year?
We asked AI to tell us who will win this battle of the two AFC giants in the NFL playoffs divisional round. There were multiple factors provided as to why each team could win, including Mahomes and his play-making abilities, calling him "one of the most talented quarterbacks in the league."
