KANSAS CITY, Mo. — After losing a pair of games to the Kansas City Chiefs last season (most notably the AFC title game), the Buffalo Bills are eager to prove they have effectively closed the gap between themselves and their old AFL nemesis.
Josh Allen and the Bills are getting that opportunity as they face Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs in the latest edition of their burgeoning rivalry at Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday Night Football.
Buffalo (3-1) entered the showdown fresh off a 40-0 domination of the Houston Texans and touting one of the NFL’s best defenses. After a rare two-game skid, Kansas City (2-2) hoped its Week 4 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles signified a return to its winning ways. One thing is for certain: Each team came into the matchup boasting one of the most exciting young QBs in the league.
The Chiefs struck first as Harrison Butker diverted from the theme of the day and made a field goal.
But on the very next drive, Allen showed up in a big way as he swiftly marched down the field and put the Bills on the board with his first rushing touchdown of the night:
