The Buffalo Bills and Kansas City Chiefs will battle it out for the right to represent the AFC in this season's Super Bowl over the weekend. The top two seeds from the conference's playoff picture will clash at Arrowhead Stadium, with the No. 2 seeded Buffalo team forced to travel to Kansas City to take on the defending champions.

Bills head coach Sean McDermott must do his homework and then some this week, as the Chiefs' quarterback situation still remains unclear at the present moment.

The Chiefs' starting quarterback and former league MVP Patrick Mahomes is currently in the league's concussion protocol, so his status for the AFC title game remains up in the air–something that likely won't change throughout the week.

“We’ve got work to do to prepare. Certainly have a lot of respect for Patrick and how he plays the game and what he adds to their offense,” the Bills' tactician said on Monday, via Matt Parrino of “They’re so good with the weapons they have around Patrick. Andy does such a good job — they’re well-coached, that we got to prepare for the system. We’ve got to prepare for both quarterbacks and that’s why we have a lot of work to do this week.”

With Mahomes prematurely exiting the Chiefs' win over the Cleveland Browns this past weekend, the reigning Super Bowl MVP was then promptly replaced by journeyman backup quarterback Chad Henne, who somewhat unexpectedly got the job done.

Of course, Henne being thrown into the fire against the Bills would be something that significantly improves Buffalo's chances of coming away with a win on the road over the always dangerous Chiefs.
