Chiefs vs Bills AFC finals: stats, standings, players comparison
The AFC Championship game sees the Kansas City Chiefs face the Buffalo Bills at the Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday evening, with both sides hoping to make it to Super Bowl LV.
It’s almost time for the AFC Championship final and what a matchup it we have in store. The Kansas City Chiefs have played the Buffalo Bills 46 times already in the regular season, while this will be the fourth time that they’ve met in the post-season. Let’s have a look at how they’ve fared with the help of some stats from our friends at sofascore.com.
Chiefs vs Bills
Since 1960, the Bills have a marginally better regular season record in this fixture showing up at 24-21-1 over the Chiefs. Over the three previous post-season games they also come out on top having won two of them, the last one coming way back in 1994 with a 30-13 victory in the AFC Championship game.
Bringing us more up to date, the two sides met in Week 6 of this season and Patrick Mahomes showed his standout qualities as he threw for 225 yards and two touchdowns in what ended up a relatively comfortable triumph for the Chiefs, 26-17. Clyde Edwards-Helaire, the rookie running back, had a game to remember as he rushed for 161 yards in total, an average of 6.2 yards per effort. Other top performances on the day included Demarcus Robinson (69 yards, 5 catches) and Travis Kelce (65 yards, five catches, two touchdowns).
With just 206 yards in total, it was a tough game offensively for the Bills and suggests they will have their work cut out for them again on Sunday. Much of the responsibility will weigh down onto the shoulders of Josh Allen who struggled, along with his teammates, in the last meeting. With a pass completion of just 52% - his lowest of the season - he managed just 122 yards, another low.
Mahomes is out of the NFL's concussion protocol, clearing the Kansas City Chiefs quarterback to play in Sunday's AFC Championship Game. Mahomes' status had been in doubt since he suffered a concussion in the third quarter of the Chiefs' dramatic 22-17 Divisional Round win over the Cleveland Browns.
