Bills get revenge vs. Chiefs, blow out defending AFC Champs 38-20 (full coverage)

Not even a lightning delay could stop the Buffalo Bills from finally getting revenge on the Kansas City Chiefs in a rematch of the 2020 AFC Championship game on Sunday Night Football.

The Bills finish with a 38-20 victory over the Chiefs, and it was all Buffalo the entire time.

The Bills put together a stellar first half performance behind the million-dollar quarterback. In the first two quarters, Josh Allen was 7 for 14 with 219 yards and two touchdowns, and also led the ground game with four carries for 41 yards. Allen would add another touchdown and almost 100 more passing yards in the second half to finish the night 15 of 26 for 315 yards and three touchdowns.

Along with the offensive firepower in the first half, the Bills defense held the shifty Patrick Mahomes and Chiefs company to just 13 points after two quarters. Mahomes would connect with Travis Kelce for another touchdown early in the fourth quarter, but finished on the losing side of the ball. He finished 33 of 54 for 272 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions.

Combine the first half defensive heroics with a Micah Hyde pick-six in the third quarter, the Bills defense slayed the metaphorical Chiefs dragon in Sunday’s matchup. The Kansas City ground game killed Buffalo in the two matchups in 2020, but on Sunday the Bills defense held KC to 120 yards rushing, 61 of those yards coming from Mahomes alone.

Aside from the season opening loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Bills have cruised to four straight victories, scoring 35, 43, 40 and now 38 points while allowing a total of 41 points.

For a team that maybe hasn’t garnered the respect nationally that they deserve with the first three wins of the season coming against backup quarterbacks, Sunday night’s victory over the Chiefs was the win the Bills needed in order to silence the haters and prove that they are nobody’s little brother anymore and are a force to be reckoned with.

GAME PREVIEW:

The Buffalo Bills are clicking on all cylinders heading into their Sunday Night Football clash with the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 5. Buffalo has responded to its season-opening loss with three straight wins by 20-plus points, including a 40-0 shellacking of the Houston Texans on Sunday.

Now the Bills enter this week with momentum on their side and revenge on their minds. The Chiefs crushed Buffalo’s Super Bowl dreams in last year’s AFC Championship Game, but KC doesn’t look like the same squad to start the 2021 campaign. This is the perfect opportunity for some payback.
