The Buffalo Bills are set to travel to Missouri to take on the Kansas City Chiefs. While all games in the NFL Playoffs are entertaining, the Divisional Round game at Arrowhead Stadium is arguably the best matchup of the weekend.
Josh Allen and the Bills are on a five-game winning streak, most recently destroying Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots in Wild Card Weekend. The Chiefs are on a two-game winning streak after dominating the Pittsburgh Steelers 42-21 in their Wild Card matchup.

Bills Divisional Round Predictions
4. Diggs has his revenge game
After the Bills lost to the Chiefs in the AFC Championship last season, Stefon Diggs stayed on the field to watch them celebrate. Why?
According to Spectrum Local News, Diggs explained that he wanted to “soak in and remember the pain to help as motivation moving forward.” While standing there alone must have been extremely tough to do in the moment, there’s no doubt that Diggs has a fire in him for Sunday night.

The wide receiver led his team in receiving yards during the regular season and continued to be a top target for Josh Allen Wild Card Weekend. Expect the star receiver to pick up at least 80 yards and at least one touchdown in the battle at Arrowhead.
3. Huge passing game for Josh Allen
Speaking of the passing game, there’s going to be a lot of passing plays for the Bills on Sunday. In the freezing, single-digit temperature in New England last weekend, Allen was able to maintain circulation throughout his body and throw for 308 yards and five touchdowns.
The Divisional Round Game won’t be warm either, but definitely better than the brutal weather the Bills endured last weekend. Allen will be much more comfortable and has the potential to throw for over 350 yards and at least three touchdowns against the Chiefs.
2. High scoring shootout
Both the Bills and the Chiefs have been able to score a lot throughout their respective seasons. The Bills averaged 28.4 points per game this regular season, while the Chiefs averaged 28.2.
Also, the Bills had a perfect game last week, capitalizing on each drive against the Patriots, scoring seven consecutive touchdowns before kneeling the final drive.
With all of this in mind, there’s no doubt that this game will be a back and forth shootout. If you are planning on betting the over for any game this weekend, this is the one to bet on. Expect at least 28 points from each team on Sunday.

1. Huge win for the Bills Mafia
This game is going to be neck and neck and come down to the final drive. The hunger of Allen, Diggs, and their team, as well as the support of the Bills Mafia will put Buffalo on top. Finally, my boldest prediction yet: Buffalo wins 38-34.
