For the third time in four years, the Buffalo Bills had their season end with a loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, this time losing 27-24 at Highmark Stadium in the AFC Divisional Round on Sunday night.
Buffalo led 17-13 at halftime but managed just seven points in the second half. However, they did have a chance to tie the game at 27 with 1:43 remaining in regulation, but Tyler Bass missed a 44-yard field goal wide right.
Josh Allen completed 26-of-39 passes for 186 yards and a touchdown. He also ran 12 times for 72 yards and two scores. Khalil Shakir hauled in the only receiving TD on a 13-yard pass from Allen.
The Bills are the first team to be eliminated by the same team three times in four years since the San Francisco 49ers lost three straight years to the Green Bay Packers from 1995-97.
