Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills lost to Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs in a hard-fought playoff game again this season. Tell me if that sounds familiar…
The Bills had all the makings of finally defeating Mahomes and the Chiefs. This included home-field advantage and playing against a shakier Chiefs team than it has been in recent years. Ultimately, the result was still the same.
The Bills wound up losing the game 27-24 in a devastating manner. After the game, Tony Romo talked about how this loss would be the most devastating of Allen’s career.
“This is gonna be the most devastating loss, I think, of Josh Allen’s career because they had things situated as an advantage.”Tony Romo said after the Bills’ loss to the Chiefs
It’s hard to argue that Romo is wrong in his assessment. This would be a prime opportunity for the Bills to get the job done. Instead, the team will have to face some harsh truths as they prepare for the years ahead.
To Allen’s credit, he tried his hardest to secure a victory for Buffalo. The Bills quarterback threw for 189 yards and a passing touchdown. However, it was his impact in the rushing game that elevated his play. He had 72 yards on the ground and accounted for two rushing touchdowns.
“‘It’s never gonna happen,’ it feels like they’ve always got your number. But when you kind of break through that barrier, things get freed up”Tony Romo
There is no denying that Allen is a great quarterback in the NFL. Sadly for him, and all of Bills Mafia, the hurdle of beating Mahomes has just been too difficult.
