What we learned about the KC Chiefs – Secondary played well
Coming into this game, the two biggest names on the Bills’ entire roster were Josh Allen and Stefon Diggs. The Chiefs’ secondary definitely had their work cut out for them in trying to slow these two down, but they were able to do just that.
Allen went 28-of-48 for 287 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception, but it’s worth noting that a lot of that production came in garbage time. Meanwhile, Diggs had six grabs for 77 yards, but again — A lot of that was in garbage time. L’Jarius Sneed limited Diggs throughout the evening, but once Sneed went out, Diggs was able to make a few more plays.
Rashad Fenton came in for Sneed after he was injured and had the lone interception of the evening. That came when the Bills were driving and looking to make things interesting so it can’t be understated how big that pick by Fenton was.
What we learned about the KC Chiefs – Offensive line kicked butt
Despite all of the injuries they’ve had this season, the Chiefs’ offensive line has persevered. They played incredibly well on Sunday, only allowing one sack with Mahomes getting hit just three times. Nick Allegretti looked really good against the Bills and is shaping up to be a really good seventh-round pick.
The bad news from this game is that Eric Fisher went down with what’s reportedly an Achilles injury and if that’s true, he won’t be playing in Super Bowl LV. That’s a huge loss for the Chiefs, as losing a left tackle is terrible, but losing Fisher is a huge blow, especially knowing he can’t play in the Super Bowl.
The Chiefs do have depth along the offensive line, however, and that’ll hopefully help them in the biggest game of the season. Considering what they’ve been working with throughout the season, it was hard not to be impressed with the offensive line in the AFC Championship Game.
