    The Playoff History of the Buffalo Bills

    As we know all too well, the Buffalo Bills have a storied past. With 31 career playoff games played since 1960, the Bills have a record of 14-17. More importantly, despite making it to the Super Bowl four times, they have not been able to earn their first ring as a franchise.

    Kansas City Chiefs vs. Buffalo Bills Conference Championship Review

    For the third time in their history, the Kansas City Chiefs and Buffalo Bills would face off for a chance to go to the Super Bowl. Strangely, there have been 27 years between each previous matchup. The Chiefs won in 1967, and the Bills won in 1994.

    Meeting again in 2021, fans got to witness two of the NFL’s best young quarterbacks in Patrick Mahomes and Josh Allen squaring off to determine who will represent the AFC in Super Bowl LV. Nobody expected Buffalo to be a participant in the AFC Championship before the season began, but here they were.

    Buffalo entered the game knowing they would need another running back to step up, with Zack Moss unable to play due to a season-ending ankle injury. Despite their injury troubles, on the opening drive, Buffalo peppered the Kansas City defense with an array of run-pass options (RPOs) that the Chiefs had trouble keeping up with. ...

    Bills Season Ends in Kansas City

    After a Tyler Bass 51-yard field goal and a Dawson Knox 3-yard touchdown pass from QB Josh Allen, the Buffalo Bills looked like they were on their way to Super Bowl LV.

    But, there’s a reason why the Kansas City Chiefs are the defending Super Bowl champions and why they were the No. 1 seed in the AFC this year.

    Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes threw the first of his three touchdown passes less than a minute into the second quarter. After Darrel Williams scored on a six-yard run roughly five minutes later, the Chiefs never trailed again on their way to a 38-24 victory. ...

    Bills Beat Ravens, On To AFC Title Game Next Week

    Sunday night’s AFC Divisional Round playoff game in Buffalo was supposed to be a showdown between the Bills’ Josh Allen and Baltimore’s Lamar Jackson. Instead, an unlikely hero emerged when Taron Johnson picked off a Jackson pass in the end zone and returned it 101 yards for a touchdown.

    Johnson’s pick-six came as Jackson was marching the Ravens toward a game-tying score. Buffalo led 10-3 with just 41 seconds remaining in the third quarter when ...

    Baltimore Ravens vs. Buffalo Bills Divisional Round Review

    In a matchup pitting the top rushing team in the NFL in the Baltimore Ravens against a Buffalo Bills team who led the 4th-best passing attack in the league, this Divisional Round game figured to feature a lot of offense.

    Early in the night, the special teams units drew the most attention. Had we known special teams would be key coming in, most would expect that to mean the Ravens would be the victor. Not this time.

    The Ravens used a series of runs and short passes to march down the field into Buffalo territory meticulously on the game's opening drive. Until Levi Wallace ...

    Indianapolis Colts Vs. Buffalo Bills Wild Card Review

    Entering the playoffs as the hottest team in football, Buffalo prepared to host their first playoff game in almost 25 years. For the first time at Bills Stadium this season, fans were allowed to be in the stands, except this game was for Super Wild Card Weekend. If you were one of roughly 6,700 members of Bills Mafia in attendance, you got to witness a thrilling victory that went down to the wire.

    Led by the first player in NFL history to finish a season with at least 4,500 passing yards, 35 touchdowns, and five or more rushing touchdowns, Josh Allen consistently marched the Bills down the field despite less than favorable field position to start each drive.

    Allen made a phenomenal heads-up play with ...

    Bills Beat Colts, Win First Playoff Game in 25 Years

    It’s almost hard to believe it was 1996 when the Buffalo Bills last won an NFL playoff game. On Saturday, Bills safety Micah Hyde emphatically batted down a last-second Philip Rivers Hail Mary attempt to give Buffalo its first postseason victory in 25 years.

    The Colts, who actually outgained Buffalo 472 to 397 for the game, kept the game close in the fourth quarter when Rivers found Zach Pascal for a nine-yard touchdown pass. After a failed two-point conversion ...

    Super Bowl LV Preview: Kansas City vs. Tampa Bay

    It is finally Super Bowl week, and for the first time in the game’s history, the host team will play in its own stadium. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, led by future Hall of Fame QB Tom Brady, will take on the Kansas City Chiefs, who have won 25 of their last 27 games. One of those wins was their comeback win over San Francisco in last year’s Super Bowl.

    The Chiefs have their own future Hall of Famer under center in last year’s Super Bowl MVP, Patrick Mahomes. After clearing concussion protocol and playing through a turf toe last week, Mahomes still threw for 325 yards and three touchdowns in Kansas City’s convincing 38-24 victory over Buffalo in the AFC title game.

    The stage is set. The Chiefs can become the first team to repeat as Super Bowl champions since Brady did it as a member of the New England Patriots in the 2003 and 2004 seasons. Brady, who is playing in his 10th Super Bowl, can win his seventh ring. ...

    Betting the playoffs isn’t easy, but it also isn’t as difficult as some would have you believe.

    NFL Wild Card Playoff Preview

    With the 2020 NFL regular season in the rearview mirror, it’s on to the postseason. It’s the NFL’s first crack at its new playoff format featuring seven, instead of six, teams in each conference. The top seeds in the AFC and NFC – Kansas City and Green Bay – are the only teams to receive a bye.

    The remaining 12 teams will all be in action on Wild Card weekend. The Bills earned the No. 2 seed in the AFC after going 13-3 and winning the AFC East for the first time since 1995. Buffalo is a 6.5-point favorite over No. 7 Indianapolis on Saturday.

    The Bills have won six straight behind a virtually ...

    Bills Beat Patriots 38-9, Sweep Season Series

    It was a historic night for the Buffalo Bills as they completely dismantled the New England Patriots 38-9. The win capped a Bills’ season sweep of the Patriots, the first since 1999.

    Buffalo was led by quarterback Josh Allen, who completed 27-of-36 passes for 320 yards and four touchdowns. Allen placed himself into the Buffalo record books breaking the franchise single-season touchdown passes mark. Allen has 34 scoring tosses passing Hall of Famer Jim Kelly for the franchise lead.

    With the 320 passing yards, Allen also topped Drew Bledsoe’s franchise record of seven 300-yard passing games in a single season. Allen now has eight. ...

    Buffalo Bills Vs. New England Patriots Week 16 Game Review

    Although it took until close to halftime for Buffalo to pull away, they once again dominated their opponent for the fifth-straight game. Andre Roberts did what he does best, returning their opening possession 49 yards, giving Josh Allen great field position. However, they got bottled up as they got within the 11-yard line, settling for three points to tie the game.

    On the next possession, Leslie Frazier’s defense was stout. On a key third down, the Bills sent extra rushers, and Quinton Jefferson brought down Cam Newton for just his third sack of the year.

    On the Bills’ next drive, they dug themselves into tough situations, getting to 4th down twice. Although on both occasions, they overcame the scenarios. The most memorable play of the drive came on 4th and 5. ...
