Bills have a date with the Chiefs, after defeating the Steelers 31-17

The Buffalo Bills won their wild-card playoff game against the Pittsburgh Steelers 31-17 on Monday in the AFC wild-card round. This was after being forced to postpone it because of a lake-effect blizzard for the second consecutive day. Josh Allen threw three touchdown passes and scored on a 52-yard touchdown run, which was a franchise playoff record.

As a result, Allen was 21 of 30 for 203 yards and ran for 74 yards on eight carries, becoming the first quarterback in NFL playoff history to throw three or more touchdown passes in addition to rushing for 70 or more yards and a touchdown. For the fourth time this season, he didn't have a turnover in the game.

With five straight wins at the end of the regular season, the Bills advance to face Patrick Mahomes and the No. 4 seed Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday night. After losing to the Chiefs in the playoffs in 2020 and '21, the Bills have long longed for a home playoff game against them.

When asked about the win Allen said, “We’ve got a resilient group." Our veteran leadership is unmatched in the league."

Mason Rudolph threw two touchdown passes and an interception in his first playoff start for the Steelers, but Pittsburgh failed to keep up with Allen and the Bills. After losing five straight playoff games, the Steelers have not won a postseason game since exactly seven years ago.

After completing his 17th season as coach of the Pittsburgh Penguins, all with a record of at least .500, Mike Tomlin smirked and walked out of the room with a smug look on his face.
