The last 72 hours have been about as bad as Bills fans have ever felt. Rarely have Buffalo sports fans felt such a bad feeling as the end of Sunday night’s AFC Divisional Round game in Kansas City against the Chiefs.
The Bills lost 42-36 in overtime, after seemingly winning the game twice off the back of Josh Allen.
Allen completed 27 of 37 passes for 329 yards and 4 touchdowns, with an additional 68 yards rushing. He led two touchdown passes late in the 4th quarter, both ended with touchdown passes to Gabriel Davis, who caught all four touchdowns for the game.

Allen may have had the best two-game playoff streak of any QB in NFL history, but due to defense and practice decisions in the defensive scheme, the Bills gave up the tying goal with 13 seconds to play and ultimately lost the game in overtime.
Bills fans feel pain and grief, but also a good deal of anger after the game ends.
Bills general manager Brandon Beane met with the Buffalo media for the season-ending press conference, and Beane started the press conference with great emotion.
Beane apologized to Bills fans and the city of Buffalo for the end of the game. That was the first thing Beane did.
Beane also said he wanted to hug Bills fans after what happened Sunday night.
Beane added that he hadn’t slept much this week and hadn’t even watched the movie of the match, simply because it hurt too much.
Beane went on to say that they will learn from the loss and will not be happy with the end of the season; but they took a step in the right direction, underscoring the fact that Sunday’s game could have gone either way, and last year the Chiefs ran away with the game.
Beane spoke in detail about the 2021 rookie class and how excited he is for the offseason, which will give them a chance to improve the roster even further.
