Buffalo Bills Players Who Won’t Play Tonight vs. the Chiefs
The Buffalo Bills will host the Kansas City Chiefs tonight at Highmark Stadium, which will wrap up the NFL's divisional round weekend.
The game is one every NFL fan has been looking forward to. This is the seventh time both teams have faced one another since 2020 and the third time in the playoffs. The Bills have won all but one regular season matchup but have lost both playoff games (2020, 2021).
This is the first time that Patrick Mahomes has ever played a road playoff game, and it's the first time that this Chiefs team has played a game in Highmark Stadium with fans. Their road game here in 2020 was during COVID and no fans attended.
For the Bills, they are motivated to win this game like no other. However, they're going to have to do it without key players.
It's official -- linebacker Terrel Bernard will not play with an ankle injury.
Gabe Davis, Taylor Rapp, Christian Benford and Baylon Spector are also out.
However, Rasul Douglas, Tyrel Dodson, Taron Johnson and punter Sam Martin will play. All were dealing with injuries this week but all are active and will face the Chiefs.
Johnson cleared concussion protocol this morning.
The Chiefs offense is not the same as it was from 2018-2022. However, they still have Mahomes and Travis Kelce. This is definitely the best defense they have had since Mahomes has been there and the reason they won the AFC West.
Josh Allen has to be special once again. Stefon Diggs likely gets covered by La'Jarius Sneed, which means Dalton Kincaid and Khalil Shakir have to come up huge.
We're an hour away from kickoff.
