As bad as last week was, having to live with the fact the Buffalo Bills couldn’t win in Arrowhead Stadium last Sunday, despite having the 36-33 lead with 13 second remaining in regulation.
As we all know by now, Bills quarterback Josh Allen was not the reason the Bills lost the game, as he had one of the greatest NFL playoff performances in history.
But the Bills defense and coaching decisions allowed the Chiefs to gained nearly 50 yards in two plays and kick the game-tying field goal, which eventually led to the Chiefs winning the game in overtime.
There’s still no definitely reason given as to why the Bills and head coach Sean McDermott decided to play the defensive scheme they did on that final drive in regulation, but to say it had a negative impact on Bills fans’ psyche over the past seven days, would be a vast understatement.
To add salt to the wound, the 13 seconds has been fully embraced in Kansas City, as Chiefs fans decided to show in the AFC Championship game against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday.
The Chiefs drove the ball inside Bengals 15-yard-line towards the end of the first half on Sunday, and called their final timeout. There just so happened to be 13 seconds left on the clock.
That’s when Chiefs fans decided to create a “13 seconds” chant, that made Bills fans log off their Twitter accounts and turn off CBS.
I said it all week. Bills fans will never forget about that disappointment, and as much as we do love McDermott here, that’s impossible to live down, unless they win the Super Bowl in the not so distant future, which is never a certainty.
