What in the divisional round?
It is tough to imagine a more enthralling slate of games than what unfolded during the divisional-playoff weekend. Almost as tough as it is to stomach that Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen didn't get a chance to touch the ball in overtime before Patrick Mahomes (378 yards, 3 TDs) found Travis Kelce in the corner of the end zone to seal a stunning 42-36 walk-off win for the Kansas City Chiefs.
While the Chiefs will go on to host the Cincinnati Bengals in Kansas City's fourth straight AFC Championship Game next weekend, Bills Mafia will probably still be trying to fathom how Allen (329 yards, 4 TDs) threw two touchdown passes in the final two minutes of regulation and their team still came up short.
The game featured three lead changes in the final two minutes of play before Kansas City kicker Harrison Butker, who missed a field goal and extra point earlier in the game, drilled a 49-yarder to force overtime as the clock expired. The rest, as they say, is history.
For now, the sports world is buzzing over how one of the most entertaining showdowns of the entire season could come down to 13 seconds and a coin toss.

It's an absolutely travesty that Josh Allen doesn't get a chance to keep the game going after all of that. The rules need to change. But what a game— Christian Ponder (@cponder7) January 24, 2022
