Buffalo Bills advance to host Kansas City Chiefs in Divisional Round | NFL Playoffs

The Buffalo Bills are moving on to the AFC Divisional round! 

The Bills defeated the Steelers 31-17 at Highmark Stadium on Monday to punch their ticket to the next stage of the NFL Playoffs. 

Buffalo, the AFC No. 2 seed, will host the No. 3 seed Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday at 6:30 p.m. on CBS.

The matchup marks the first time since the 1993 AFC Championship that the Bills will host the Chiefs in a postseason game. The Bills won that game 30-13 to advance to Super Bowl XXXVII. 

Buffalo has now advanced to at least the divisional round of the playoffs in four consecutive seasons and has won a home playoff game in each year during the streak. The Bills are 5-1 at home in the playoffs under Sean McDermott. 

Against the Steelers, the Bills got out to a 21-0 lead behind three first half touchdowns from Josh Allen. Allen's third TD was a 52-yard run, the second-longest TD rush by quarterback in NFL Playoff history.

The Bills QB tallied his fourth TD of the game during the fourth quarter on a 17-yard TD pass to Khalil Shakir, giving Buffalo a 31-17 lead. Shakir and TE Dalton Kincaid both recorded their first career playoff TDs on Sunday.
