When is Chiefs vs. Bills playoff game? Updates, TV channel, time, injury report, weather forecast and more

Skip ahead:

For the third time in four years, the Chiefs and Bills will do battle in the postseason. The Chiefs have gotten the better of the Bills in the last two playoff contests. 

In 2021, the Chiefs put an end to the Bills’ Cinderella season with a comfortable 38-24 win. The Chiefs defense gave Josh Allen fits that night sacking him four times and forcing him into a momentum-swinging interception. 

In 2022, the Chiefs and Bills played what many believe to be one of the greatest football games of all time. Allen and Patrick Mahomes left the game with 136.0 and 123.1 QBRs respectively as Kansas City celebrated a divisional-round win in overtime, 42-36. 

While the Chiefs own bragging rights over the Bills when it counts, Buffalo has had success in its regular season meetings with Kansas City. The Bills have won their last three regular-season meetings with the Chiefs. 

Is this the year Allen and the Bills finally get over the hump? Or will Mahomes and co. continue to own Buffalo when it counts?

Here’s everything you need to know about the game and when it will happen.

Taylor Swift braved the frigid -10-degree weather in Kansas City to watch her boyfriend Travis Kelce help the Chiefs defeat the Dolphins 26-7 in the NFL wild-card round. 

Swift made headlines walking into the arena with a white beanie and a custom Chiefs red-and-gold Nike winter jacket with a massive No. 87 plastered on the front and sleeve. 

Swift has been in attendance for 10 Chiefs games this season and with Kansas City extending its season to the divisional round, you can expect that music superstar will be making an effort to see her new favorite team go all the way. 

While it’s currently unknown whether or not Swift will be attending at Highmark Stadium on Sunday for Chiefs vs. Bills, you can bank on her enjoying every minute of the game if she does.
