Game Summary

The Bills offense opened the game with a field goal after converting a 4th down attempt at midfield and avoiding a near-pick by Juan Thornhill. The Chiefs were unable to respond as a 30 yard gain slipped through Tyreek Hill’s fingers, forcing a 3-and-out. The defense forced a punt on the following drive to no avail, as Mecole Hardman muffed a punt at the 3 yard line and Buffalo recovered it. One play later the Bills were in the endzone, but missed the PAT giving them a 9-0 lead.

Feeling more comfortable with his team behind by two scores, Patrick Mahomes led a classic Chiefs drive, going 80 yards featuring Kelce and Hill before giving Hardman a 3 yard charity touchdown so he didn’t get mauled in the parking lot. Following a Bills punt the Chiefs offense drove 82 yards for another score, this time featuring a 50 yard Hardman end around and capped off by 6 yard Darrell Williams rush to the goal line. The Bills, in turn, answered with a punt, a sure-fire winning strategy. The Chiefs, doing Chiefs things, went 77 yards this time before Clyde Edwards-Helaire punched it in from the one. The Bills were able to tack on a field goal making it 21-12 at half time.

The second half opened with first the Chiefs, then the Bills, exchanging field goals before Tyreek Hill took over and ran 145 yards on a 71 yard catch and run to set up a nifty shovel pass touchdown to Travis Kelce. On the Bills next drive Rashad Fenton stepped in front of a Josh Allen pass for the interception, and 11 plays later Patrick Mahomes found Travis Kelce for a 5 yard touchdown despite losing Eric Fisher to an ankle injury.

The Bills answered with a touchdown to pull within 17, and recovered the subsequent onsides kick attempt to set their offense up with a short field. The drama was just beginning as Allen was sacked and threw the ball at Alex Okafor, who got up looking to do some jawing when the Bills OL came in and smeared him, leading to a 15 minute conference in which all 22 players were given offsetting penalties and the Bills punted, effectively ending the game.

Saw the impact of Spags’ defense tonight… Late movement & disguise. Pressure. Aggressive, competitive. DBs who challenge WRs in coverage. Make the QB work post-snap — and throw into contested windows.

Mahomes might be the most humble, petty, competitive prickish QB I have ever seen.

So, the last time in the Chiefs/Bucs game that the Bucs’ offense possessed the ball and had a chance to tie or go ahead in the game was with 7:07 min. to go in the 1ST QUARTER.

I apologize. Parker ran a 4.35. I never saw him play that fast in the NFL. Parker was alright for a bit, but somebody I thought we could always improve on.

Sneed and Fenton remind me of Carter and Hasty.

Parker’s problem is that he was a late bloomer because teams didn’t know where to put him. The Chiefs realized that he plays best as an FS and went with it. Parker was a solid addition for a defense that needed anything at Safety. He was one of the Waiver Wire 7.

I think a lot of our past DBs get dissed because they played in a bad scheme. The famed Sutton philosophy of running the Ryan defense without the blitzes.

“Going to Tampa” is not generally considered a good thing but in this context I approve 🙂

So we’re playing a former “division rival” in the SB. Who remembers that?

Au contraire. In 1976, their first year in existence, they were in the AFC West. Look it up. Pepperidge Farm remembers!

And they will.
“Tony, I don’t think you’ll remember this, but once upon a time, Tampa and Kansas City were actually division rivals”
“What? That’s crazy, Jim”
“It’s true. 1976, Tampa was in the AFC West for one season”
Followed by multiple jokes about Jim’s age and wisdom.
I’d bet on that.

The only two quarterbacks with a history of critical playoff moments are facing each other in the Super Bowl.

Yeah, I was going to say, 2 years ago Brady had a very critical playoff moment against us.

Media for the past 2 months: Kansas City has been playing on borrowed time, barely winning their games. They have no statement wins. Their luck will run out.

Mahomes tonight: “ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED”

“That’s the team we gotta beat. So we gotta do everything with that in mind this offseason.” – Sean McDermott, #Bills coach, on the #Chiefs. That’s a message 30 other teams need to adopt, especially on the defensive side.

Also, at the start of this year, I knew the hat that I got that said “2x Super Bowl Champions” was going to be obsolete by March 2021. Go Chiefs!
