LIONS, 23-20


Spread: Bills favored by 2 1/2 points

In a pivotal matchup, the Bills will finally host the Chiefs in January, marking a significant shift from Mahomes’ previous playoff experiences against Buffalo. Having secured two consecutive postseason victories over the Bills at home in the 2020 and 2021 seasons, Mahomes now faces his first road playoff game. Notably, the teams did not clash in last year’s playoffs, when the Chiefs (12-6) ultimately went on to clinch the Super Bowl title.

The Bills (12-6) entered the playoffs with a 6-6 record but gained momentum with a crucial 20-17 win at Kansas City, sparking a remarkable five-game winning streak to close out the regular season. The challenge for the Bills is compounded by a shorter rest period, forced upon them by a snowstorm that led to a Monday game against Pittsburgh. In contrast, the Chiefs enjoyed two extra days of rest following their victory over Miami last Saturday night.
