AFC Divisional Round Preview (Buffalo Vs Kansas City)

The rematch from last year’s NFL playoffs that everyone wanted to see and we get it in the Divisional round. We have a very much so interesting final game of the divisional round out of the AFC. We have the Buffalo Bills taking on the Kansas City Chiefs. Last year, the Chiefs sent the Bills home in the AFC Championship game. Buffalo got a little bit of revenge earlier this season. Both teams are at their absolute best right now. Who comes out on top in this one? With that being said here is my preview for this AFC Divisional round showdown.

Buffalo

The Buffalo Bills did something that no NFL team has ever done. Score on every single possession in a playoff game. Yes, you read that right they did that last week against the New England Patriots in their wild card matchup. Josh Allen is playing as a top two quarterback in the league right now. He balled out last week in the cold against the Patriots, as he threw for 308 passing yards and five touchdowns. He also had 66 yards rushing as well. This offense looks legit right now and they are going to be a force that I don’t know if Kansas City’s defense is going to be able to stop.

Defensively, if we see the same effort from a week ago then Buffalo will easily go to the AFC Championship game. However, they are going to need to contain three of the best players in the league at their position. Mahomes, Kelce and Hill will all need to be kept in check for the Bills defense to have a fantastic showing yet again. They looked real good against them at the beginning of the season we will see if they can give us the same effort in the AFC Divisional round.

 

Kansas City

The Chiefs are where they are at because their defense helped them when their offense struggled. Mahomes hasn’t been the same Patrick Mahomes that we got accustomed to at points and times this season. Last week against the Steelers defense, we were use to seeing that Patrick Mahomes. Mahomes threw for 404 yards to go along with 5 touchdowns and an interception. After a rough first quarter, the Chiefs offense lit up the scoreboard. They will look to do the same against a formidable Buffalo defense. Numbers that each of Kansas City’s big three had in their week five loss to the Bills are as followed. Mahomes (272 passing yards 2 touchdowns 2 interceptions), Hill (7 catches 63 receiving yards), Kelce (6 catches 57 receiving yards 1 touchdown). Those numbers are going to have to be a lot better, if the Chiefs want to head back to the AFC Championship game.

Defensively, this defense looks a lot different than it did the last time these two faced off. This defense has confidence and their front seven does the job when applying pressure. Look for this defense to not look like it did in week number five against the Bills. Chris Jones and Melvin Ingram are two names that you will hear a lot from on Sunday night. Those two are the driving force in the front seven and they will look to carry over what they did last week against the Steelers.

 

Prediction: 

The Chiefs are currently 1.5 point favorites against the Bills with the over/under set at 54. I lean the under here, because I think both defenses are going to come to play and I see this as a 24-20 type of game. My official play on this game is Chiefs ML. It is hard to not take the Chiefs here. They are the home team and might have something to prove after their embarrassing loss to the Bills earlier on in the season. I like the Chiefs to move on from the AFC Divisional round here.
