Bills at Chiefs Score, Takeaway: Josh Allen beats Patrick Mahomes, Buffalo assembles to win penalty shootout rematch

The Chiefs have won the Bills’ best in the last two meetings of their AFC contenders. First in the Conference Championship, then in the most intense penalty shootout in the division round last year. But not on Sunday. Taron Johnson jumped in front of a late Patrick Mahomes pass to secure a 24-20 win. Both sides started slow in the expected confrontation and worked hard for the big play, eventually ending in a red zone turnover. However, Mahomes and Josh Allen each provided downfield strikes during the game, and Stefon Diggs, Gabe Davis and Von Miller all scored highlights of the season pushing Buffalo 5-1. Harrison Butker’s Chiefs Franchise record 62 yards goal scored 10-10. He took a total of 12 seconds to do so. One year after he used the last 13 seconds of the Bills-Chiefs playoff game to set a field goal that forced overtime. As in that postseason match, the two teams tied after the first, second and third quarters. Here’s an excerpt from Sunday’s Bills-Chiefs penalty shootout. There are two main reasons the Bills won. Josh Allen, as expected, was a huge success. – Play the machine more often. And although they don’t get much credit, the defense played exactly when they needed it. Let’s start with Allen. He wasn’t very organized and consistently dropped 10-15 yards from behind the line for mega play, even though Devin Singletary ran easily into the open space. However, once Allen and Stefon Diggs were disconnected, the attack found his rhythm and Diggs finished with 10 catches and runs for 148 yards. Gabe Davis’ speed was once again showing, and Allen showed his confidence in every store, including Dawson Knox, with his time bombs and bullets. Defensively, Taron Johnson deserves credit for sealing the game by jumping Mahomes’ unbalanced throw to double coverage. However, Von Miller scored two sacks and played a pivotal role in keeping the Mahomes moving. Kansas City proved to be the king of miraculous drives, especially at the end of the first half when Mahomes needed all 12 seconds to set Harrison Butker’s team-record 62-yard field goal. Mahomes remained a magician in its own right and always kept KC even if KC didn’t lead, leaning on the very reliable Travis Kelce and the surprisingly open JuJu Smith-Schuster. However, QB also felt pressure to play from time to time, such as forcing one into the end zone and being picked up by Kaiir Elam. Or its rookie Joshua Williams was tasked with locking the Bills’ fast receivers from the outside. Chiefs fans shouldn’t worry too much considering how close this goal is as expected, but with how far 15 and 87 depend, it’s reasonable to remain skeptical about the depth of Mahomes’ receive options. Going back and forth from start to finish would be Mahomes’ second choice when Johnson took the Chiefs QB to jump the route and build something out of nothing. That interception put the ball back into Buffalo’s hands 24-20 after the Bills’ 12th play TD drive and confirmed the visitor’s close win. Gameplay All of Allen’s big plays are worth it, but the QB for linking his last TD to Dawson Knox. Everything about the throws that made the Bills good was textbook. What’s next The Bills (5-1) will take a break for a match against Packers (3-3), who lost to Jets in Week 6 before heading home on Sunday night, October 30th. The Chiefs (4-2), meanwhile, make their way to a Super Bowl LIV rematch with the 49ers (3-3), who were offended by the Falcons on Sunday.
