The past 72 hours has been about as bad a feeling as Bills fans have ever felt. Buffalo sports fans have rarely felt a feeling as bad 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 on the back of Josh Allen.
Allen completed 27 of 37 passes for 329 yards and 4 touchdowns, with another 68 yards rushing. He led two touchdown drives at the end of the 4th quarter, both ended with touchdown passes to Gabriel Davis, who caught all four touchdown passes in the game.
Allen had perhaps the best two-game playoff stretch of any QB in NFL history, but because of defense and coaching decisions in thee defensive scheme, the Bills gave up the tying field goal with 13 seconds left, and ultimately lost the game in overtime.
Bills fans are feeling pain and heartbreak, but also a fair share of anger after the way the game ended.
Bills general manager Brandon Beane met with the Buffalo media for the end of season press conference, and Beane started out the press conference with plenty of emotion.
Beane apologized to Bills fans and the City of Buffalo for how the game ended. It was the first thing Beane did.
Beane also said he wants to hug Bills fans after what happened on Sunday night.
Beane added that he hasn't slept much this week, and has not even watched the film of the game, just because it hurts too much.
Beane went on to say that they will learn from the loss and will not be satisfied with how the season ended; but they took a step in the right direction, highlighting the fact the game on Sunday could have gone either way, and last year the Chiefs basically ran away with the game.
Beane talked about the 2021 rookie class in detail and the fact that he is excited about the off-season, which will give them a chance to make the roster even better.
