The Buffalo Bills are advancing in a game that it didn't always feel that way. They would get out to a 21 point lead after a remarkable game from Josh Allen to start, including a remarkable 52 yard touchdown run. However a field goal block late in the second quarter by the Steelers set them up for a touchdown late in the first half.
From that point, the Pittsburgh Steelers would then outscore the Bills 17-3 after that field goal block. The Buffalo Bills would be able to respond with a touchdown due to an incredible run by Khalil Shakir after the catch to push the lead back to 14 points. That was all they needed to secure the win and move on to the AFC Divisional Round.
Who will the Buffalo Bills play next in the NFL playoffs?
Thanks to having the two seed, the Buffalo Bills will once again be playing at home at Highmark Stadium as they prepare for the Kansas City Chiefs. The Chiefs won on Saturday over the Miami Dolphins and this will be the first playoff game that Patrick Mahomes will be playing on the road.
These two franchises have quite the history as the Bills and Chiefs have met at least once, and sometimes twice, every year over the past four seasons. Their last meeting was earlier this season at Arrowhead Stadium in a game the Bills would win 20-17.
The meeting between those two teams was right after the Bills' bye week and was the first game in the Bills five game win streak to end the season. It was the only reason they would go on to win the AFC East. The win over the Chiefs is also the reason the game is being played in Buffalo and not Kansas City.
