The Buffalo Bills were eliminated in the AFC divisional round after their game against the No. 3 seed Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday evening. The Bills could not find a way to win after going down early in the 4th quarter, unable to complete the comeback as the Chiefs won 27-24.
There are a handful of Bills players who could have won this week’s Bills Wire Player of the Game. We are awarding it to quarterback Josh Allen, who was 26 of 39 for 186 yards and one passing touchdown to Khalil Shakir, linked below, as well as carrying the ball 12 times for 72 yards and two touchdowns.
WHAT A THROW. WHAT A CATCH.

Allen ran for two touchdowns in the first half before connecting with wide receiver Shakir for his sole passing touchdown in a cold winter Sunday. Allen did everything he could to win this frosty divisional matchup against 2023 Super Bowl winner Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs.
Allen found the end zone with his feet at the beginning and end of the second quarter, both times to give Buffalo a lead. Unfortunately, the Bills could not prevent the Chiefs from scoring nor could they find a way to tie or take the lead at the end of the game.
The Bills are now eliminated from the 2023 NFL playoffs.
