I'd agree on the Bills' exhaustion. Anyone would be when Hill takes off and he DID. KC receivers as a team played just that much better in the final clutch. Except, of course; Kelce. He always plays that well and is amazingly fast for a guy that big that blocks on many, many plays.The only explanation for the end of that KC game is that Buffalo's defense must have been exhausted. No one moves the ball that far, that fast, not even KC and Mahomes. Monday morning QB here, but why did Buffalo kick the ball deep with 13 seconds left? Why not squib it? They have a good special teams, and that would have shaved at least a couple seconds off the clock with the ball in someone else's hands instead of Mahomes for one play. Then again, with the way they were running out of gas on D, maybe it didn't matter.
Agree on OT rules. To see Josh Allen sitting on the sidelines in OT, never getting to touch the ball, after all that back and forth excitement it's awful. It was like whoever won the coin toss was going to win the game. They don't have to change the rule in the regular season, in fact I'd be fine with no OT in the regular season and a few more tie games, but in the playoffs? How many times have we seen this? If I remember right, it happened to Peyton Manning a few times.
Agree the NFL definitely would rather have KC and Mahomes still in the playoffs. I'm not saying it was rigged (though I'm convinced that has happened more than we'll ever know) but it sure benefits the league.
I'll take KC next week over Cincy. The other game, probably SF, but let me think about it.
Next week will probably be dull. Or not. I'm entertained with these games since the Seahawks aren't involved to disappoint.
