The Bills took down the Dolphins in a nail-biter on wild-card weekend to advance to the AFC Divisional round, moving us one step closer to a potential neutral-site AFC Championship game.
The NFL announced last week that in the event of a Bills vs. Chiefs matchup in the AFC Championship, the game would be played in Atlanta. It represents the final part of the league’s contingency plan following the cancellation of the Week 17 Bills vs. Bengals game due to Damar Hamlin’s on-field collapse.
The Chiefs retained the No. 1 seed despite playing one more game than the Bills this season, but they will not get home-field advantage if they end up playing Buffalo for a trip to the Super Bowl. If the Chiefs take down the Jaguars and the Bills triumph over the Bengals this weekend, the dramatic showdown between two AFC heavyweights will be locked in as a road trip for both teams.
Loyal Chiefs and Bills fans from all over are no doubt already preparing for the possibility. With tickets set to go on presale in the next few days, here’s a look at how the process will work for fans looking to attend the potential AFC Championship game in Atlanta:
