It will go down as one of the greatest playoff games in NFL history. The Kansas City Chiefs and Buffalo Bills combined for 25 points in the final two minutes of regulation in a wild back and forth finish. The Chiefs eventually came out on top in overtime 42-36.
With the Chiefs leading by 5 Josh Allen hit Gabriel Davis for a 27-yard touchdown pass with 1:54 remaining. A two-point conversion toss to Stefon Diggs put the Bills up 29-26. The Chiefs answered 5 plays later with Patrick Mahomes hitting a crossing Tyreek Hill for a 64-yard score to put KC back up 33-29 with 1:02 remaining. The Bills came firing back and Allen hit Davis again on a 4th down throw with 13 seconds left to put the Bills back up 36-33. Mahomes wouldn’t let the game end, hitting Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce on back-to-back plays to give Harrison Butker a 49-yard field goal attempt to tie it. Butker came through and the game went to overtime.
The Chiefs won the coin toss to receive the ball first in overtime and they made it count. Kansas City drove down to the 8-yard line before Mahomes hit Travis Kelce on the right side of the end zone for the winning score, setting off a wild celebration at Arrowhead Stadium.
