Second half at Arrowhead Stadium has been postponed 62 minutes due to heavy rain and thunderstorms in the Kansas City area; Patrick Mahomes has intercepted the ball twice – one returned for a touchdown – and falls through in the later stages when the Chiefs suffer a heavy home defeat.
The Buffalo Bills avenged their loss in the AFC championship to the Kansas City Chiefs last year by knocking out 38-20 winners at a rainy Arrowhead stadium in Sunday Night Football.
The Bills averaged 17 points in a row in the second quarter, taking the lead 24-13 at half-time, but their momentum was halted by a 62-minute delay during halftime break due to a thunderstorm.
When play finally resumed, Buffalo continued to dominate games, with Mahomes hitting possession one after the other in the third quarter, with the former returning for a 26-yard touchdown by Mick Hyde.
Rookie Passer Greg Russo caught the second retreat from an alarmed Mahomes, who also coughed late. The Kansas City quarterback finished with 272 passes and 61 yards on the ground, but failed to prevent the Chiefs slipping away from their second straight home defeat to 2-3 of the season. Meanwhile, The Bills lead AFC East with a 4-1 result.
It was Kansas City that took the lead early in the competition when Harrison Butker shot 31 yards from the field, ending a lengthy 17-game opening move with the home team.
The Bills responded with a touchdown in their first series – Allen scored nine yards – before the Chiefs failed a subsequent kick-off, but Buffalo was unable to add any points from the back.
Magomes spearheaded yet another lengthy chiefs ride, culminating in a five-yard touchdown at Byron Pringle to see them head first again, only for Buffalo to once again respond with seven of his own.Allen found Emmanuel Sanders with 35 yards for the first of his two points in day.
