It will be a rematch of their Oct. 19 meeting when the top-seeded Kansas City Chiefs take on the Buffalo Bills for a berth in Super Bowl 55. In that Monday night matchup in Buffalo, Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes threw for 225 yards and a pair of first-half touchdowns to lead Kansas City to a 26-17 victory. Thanks in part to that win, the Chiefs (15-2) are the ones hosting the AFC Championship game stream from Arrowhead Stadium.

Buffalo Bills vs Kansas City Chiefs AFC Match Preview

For the second round in a row, the Buffalo Bills didn’t look great, but they out-performed their opponent to advance in the playoffs, most recently defeating the Baltimore Ravens.

There’s a big “what if” hanging over Bill’s divisional-round win, and that’s “What if Lamar Jackson didn’t get hurt at the end of the third quarter?”. Neither team scored in the final frame, meaning that Buffalo was already up 17-3 entering the final frame, but a talent like Jackson’s can take over a game; One need look no further than the Ravens’ game against the Browns in Week 13 to see what Lamar is capable of. That said, the Bills defense limited Lamar through three-quarters of the game, and they earned the victory in the end.

The Kansas City Chiefs had scoring opportunities on all seven of their drives, not needing to call upon the services of Tommy Townsend, their punter, even once against the Browns in the last round. After scoring on their first four drives, the Chiefs look dangerous – That is until you see that Patrick Mahomes is on the injury report.

After the former MVP left the field, Chad Henne backed him up by helping finish the drive with a field goal, then tossed an interception on the next drive. Henne did dazzle on the final drive of the game, not for scoring, but first by picking up a crucial twelve yards on 3rd & 14, and then by executing the pass play on 4th & 1 that sealed the Chiefs’ victory.

Offensively, Buffalo (15-3) needs to hold nothing back. QB Josh Allen needs to do a better job spreading the ball to WRs Stefon Diggs, Cole Beasley and Gabriel Davis than he did in the teams’ Week 6 meeting. The Bills also need to find a way to run the ball more effectively, given the strength of Kansas City’s defense is in the secondary.

Of course, that was Tom Brady, but that was also with his other team and his ex-head coach. Aaron Rodgers may not yet have the resume of Tom Brady, but by the terms of the Jordan-LeBron GOAT debate – Rodgers hasn’t lost a Super Bowl.

Green Bay Packers vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers NFC Match Preview

Aaron Rodgers has been playing noticeably lose this season, and that’s translating into one of the best years of his career. Whether the care-free, laid-back attitude is a result of the Packers drafting a quarterback in the first round of the draft last year, or if he’s just found a new appreciation of the game with a number of quarterbacks with his experience pondering retirement, only he could say.

As of this moment, this AFC Championship match-up is a little tough to the bill, because it could feature a former MVP and Super Bowl MVP at quarterback for the Chiefs, or in his place could be a 13-year veteran of the NFL who has been a back-up for the better part of that time.

Tom Brady is no stranger to conference championship games, but this is his first in the NFC, so maybe it fits a little differently. As confident as Brady surely feels, Tampa Bay’s receivers are a little weak in the knees – No, literally.

Both Antonio Brown and Mike Evans have been on the Buccaneers’ injury report this week with knee issues, and Brown has officially been downgraded to “OUT”. Evans has been dealing with his injury for a couple of weeks now, and he played on it last week, but it still has him limited in practice, though likely to keep the knee as fresh as possible for Sunday.
