On Sunday night, the Chiefs and Bills went toe to toe in a highly-anticipated Divisional Round battle for a spot in the AFC Championship game against the Baltimore Ravens. After plenty of mid-game offensive fireworks, the Chiefs defense put down the clamps and walked away with a close 27-24 victory.
With the win, the Chiefs return to a conference championship game for the sixth straight season—a run of sustained success never before seen in franchise history (and rarely ever seen in NFL history).
With the loss, the Bills were left wondering what else they could have done before heading into a defining offseason in which very difficult financial decisions must be made. It didn't help matters that a franchise defined by Wide Right watched its title chances once again sink down the drain on a missed field goal at the last second (this time by Tyler Bass).
Instead of just taking the loss and reflecting on what they could learn, the Bills instead decided to turn sour on the Chiefs. How, you ask? Well, according to Chiefs tackle Donovan Smith, the Bills decided to send K.C. back home as smelly as possible.
Yeah, that's cold showers for everyone in the visitor's locker room room, we suppose. Given the temperatures in Buffalo, the onslaught of snowballs thrown, and the exertion of a game of postseason football, that seems like a stupid move.
Then again, the Bills don't have the experience to handle winning at this point and even with so many losses, they somehow still cannot stay classy in defeat either.
