Travis Kelce and the Kansas City Chiefs defeated Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills in their Divisional Round playoff matchup on Sunday night, snapping the Bills’ six-game winning streak.
Afterward, Kelce had a brief conversation with Allen and gave him and Buffalo props for the success they had this season in spite of all of the adversity they faced.
“You know it’s all the love in the world baby,” Kelce told Allen on the field, via Dan Fetes of WHAM-13. “Love you brother. Hell of a job getting here. That (expletive) crazy that you got here.”
Kelce was referencing the fact that the Bills were 6-6 heading into the month of December. Their playoff hopes looked bleak, and they were three games behind the Miami Dolphins for first place in the AFC East.
Well, Allen and Co. rattled off five straight wins to end the regular season, including a victory over the Dolphins in the season finale that gave Buffalo the AFC East division title in improbable fashion.
The Bills then proceeded to defeat the Pittsburgh Steelers in the Wild Card Round of the playoffs before falling to the Chiefs.
Buffalo was leading Kansas City 24-20 early in the fourth quarter, but a rushing touchdown from running back Isiah Pacheco gave the Chiefs a 27-24 edge, which ended up being the final score.
Kelce logged five catches for 75 yards and a couple of touchdowns in the win. Meanwhile, Josh Allen went 26-for-39 with 186 yards, a touchdown and an interception. He also carried the ball 12 times for 72 yards while reaching the end zone twice as a rusher.
This represented Kansas City’s first road playoff win in the Patrick Mahomes era, as the club had yet to even play a road playoff game in Mahomes’ first 15 postseason starts.
Travis Kelce and the Chiefs will now aim to make it to their fourth Super Bowl in five years when they battle the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC Championship Game next weekend.
