This is the first game everybody looked out for when the NFL schedule was released, and the way these teams are performing, the hype is entirely justified. The Chiefs have the highest scoring offense in the league, with the Bills at No.2, and if the sheer mind-blowing quality of Patrick Mahomes and Josh Allen wasn't enough of a reason to tune in, 13 seconds and a coin toss means there's also revenge on the cards at Arrowhead Stadium today. The sun is shining down on the City of Fountains, and you can read on as we explain how to watch a Bills vs Chiefs live stream online from anywhere.

The last meeting between the Chiefs and Bills produced one of the greatest games in NFL history, and probably its most heartbreaking defeat too. Between them, Mahomes and Allen put 25 points on the board in a frantic last two minutes of regulation, which ended with the most gut-wrenching 13 seconds of Bills supporters' lives.

With Buffalo leading 36-33 and time almost up, Mahomes combined with Travis Kelce to set up a game-tying field goal that sent the clash into overtime. KC won the toss, Mahomes and Kelce linked up again, and the Bills' season was over.

Sean McDermott has had nine months to plot his revenge, and with these two teams the standout favorites for the Super Bowl, regular season games don't get better than this. Follow our guide on how to watch a Bills vs Chiefs live stream wherever you are today.
