The Buffalo Bills truly looked comfortable at home, after a snowstorm delayed their AFC Wild Card game against the Pittsburgh Steelers more than 24 hours, advancing to the divisional round after a 31-17 victory.
The Bills get their divisional-round rematch against the Chiefs two seasons after their epic overtime clash that caused the NFL to change its overtime rules.
Despite some turbulence this season, Buffalo quarterback Josh Allen had a phenomenal performance with four total touchdowns.
The Bills have won the last two meetings between the teams, while Kansas City hasn’t beaten Buffalo in regulation in the last four meetings.
The epic Chiefs-Bills rematch will be the divisional-round finale, scheduled for a 6:30 p.m. Sunday kickoff on CBS.

The game was delayed over 24 from its original Sunday afternoon start time after New York governor Kathy Hochul declared a state of emergency, deeming it unsafe for fans to travel to the game in the snow storm.
On Sunday night, fans were given $20 per hour to help clear Highmark Stadium of snow.
Even vigorous cleanup efforts couldn’t get all the snow out of the stadium, as Bills fans were seen throwing some around after every touchdown.
At kickoff the temperature in Orchard Park was 18 degrees and consistently dropped throughout the game, ending in the low teens.
Oddly enough, the last five meetings between the teams have all taken place at Arrowhead Stadium. The Chiefs haven’t played in Buffalo since 2020.
With the Bills victory, all four of the AFC’s top seeds advanced to the divisional round.
